    My iPhone 4 backs up to iCloud (my music is also stored in iCloud) - if I buy an iPad & sign into iCloud on it, will it download all my apps as well as everything else stored in the cloud?!

    You have the option to set up as new, or restore from a backup. It also won't install specific iPhone only apps that aren't intended to be used on the iPad.

    .....ok so if I set up as a new iPad and then sign into iCloud - it will still download contacts, music iPad compatible apps, etc?

    .....so what would the difference be between setting up as new and then signing into iCloud to get my stuff, or restoring from the back up of my iPhone 4? The end results are both the same - an iPad with all my info on?!
