Updating my iPhone 4 to ios7 today, and it has left me very annoyed. Updated it eventually, get on there, do everything to be basically frozen on the connected to itunes screen. Can't do anything, try a few different things doesn't change despite doing everything right on the computer with it showing normal iphone page on itunes. Thought i would see if it changed it if i made a new iphone from it. It transpires then that it automatically backs it up and all traces of backups a year or newer have disappeared so i am left with a completely new phone with a few things i apparently backed up on icloud about a year ago. Livid. What can i do? Luckily a lot is manageable but access to old texts for example, and notes and such like are all gone... Not to mention a load of important numbers!
