    Suddenly my itunes is telling that my iphone needs to be restored. I went to go restore it but I don't see the option that says restore from backup. I don't want to lose all my stuff and start over again, so what is it thats not letting me restore from my backup? Is there another way? Im on lion.

    You click restore first, (don't worry), it downloads the latest software and installs it -
    When done with that, it will ask you if you want to restore it to one of your restore dates, and then u just select which one, and it puts all that info on ur phone -
