    I just got my iPhone 5 yesterday as an upgrade to my iPhone 4. I do NOT have access to a computer and haven't synced to my MacBook (which I don't have access to right now) since March. I erased the entire iphone 5 and did a restore from iCloud. So far it seems all my photos (save for a few videos) have synced and all my apps at least have icons but every single one is stuck about half way and have been for many hours. I think my restore is stuck on all my music. Now beware, I am doing this on a ridiculously painfully SLOW wifi connection in a hotel as it's all I have access to right now.

    Is there a way I can tell it to forget about music period, don't restore it, and just finish restoring my apps and settings? I can live without my music for a month until I get back to my laptop to sync via iTunes. I still have my inactive iPhone 4 with all my music. It's been almost 24 hours now and still restoring. How do I NOT restore music but DO restore everything else? I can deal with music later I just want my apps and settings.

    Thanks!

    I don't think you can selectivity restore. At this point you might want to risk just turning the phone off and back on. Maybe a dialog box will appear asking if you want to continue, and select no. Just a guess. Or maybe it will continue to sync again. I've never encountered your problem before. Just a thought.

    Actually it seems as if things are working now. In iTunes on the phone, two songs were stuck at "processing" and the other songs were waiting. I deleted the top song that was processing (couldn't delete the second) and the next song started downloading fine and now that other stuck one is downloading again. After that, I can tap each app one by one and it downloads and installs. Requires much manual input but thats ok. I can deal with deleting that one song and get it back later.

    Thanks!

    Good deal then, glad it worked out for the most part.

    This has been a huge pain...all sorts of issues with upgrading like iMessage not working on iPad etc but it seems like things are getting back to regular slowly. I suspect the majority of my issues root from this 28.8k modem-"esque" wifi connection I'm getting here in the hotel...

    True, restoration only works well via a good connected wifi signal.
