    Does restoring an iPhone from an iCloud backup also activate the restrictions lock?

    Scenario: I enabled restrictions on my wife's phone to prevent removal of accounts and prevent disabling of location services incase the phone was stolen. for some reason I can't remember what code was entered as it's not one of my usual codes.

    she'll be inheriting my 4s any time now and we'll restore it from her iCloud backup. When I do that, will the phone's restrictions still be enabled or will they have to be re-enabled?

    They will have to be re enabled and prompt you to generate a new passcode.
