    I had some issues with my phone so I decided to restore it from a back up.
    I plugged in my phone, let it do it's thing. Said backing up...
    I right clicked my phone and forced it again to backup. To be safe.
    Restored from backup and the newest version I have to select from is months old.??
    I went with not selecting anything hoping there's some hidden recent file or something. There's not.
    All the old settings are back on my phone.
    My phone has time traveled back 6 months.

    I had the exact same issue when upgrading from 4 to 4s.
    What the heck am I missing here?
    Where's my current backup I just made?

    Thanks all

    Are you using iCloud? If so, it's in there accessible from your phone, not in iTunes.

    Yes I am on the cloud but I also had this same issue when transitioning from 4 to 4S before the cloud was up and running.

    I was also under the impression that the cloud only holds some info but not all.
    Previous text messages, camera roll, placement off apps on phone.

    Is there a way for me to revert back to my phone a few backups ago via the cloud now?

    Very confused
    Thanks again
