    I want to reset my phone completely, sign back in using my Apple ID, install ios 8, and reinstall my last iCloud backup. ALL WIRELESSLY. Is this all possible in this way?

    I'm trying this now. You'll have to reset and erase the phone again after you have iOS 8 installed so that you are again offered the opportunity to restore from iCloud backup.

    That's another thing I was wondering. Can't you go into settings and select restore from iCloud somewhere?


    Also, I can't remember if I iCloud backs up text messages. Anyone know if it does?

    Not sure if you can do it after the fact, but you can do it after the restore when it presents you with the Welcome screen and initial setup flow (part of it will be asking you if you want to restore from a local or iCloud backup).
