    So basically have had issues with restoring my data from iTunes and iCloud to my ip6+. Something must be corrupt in the data just no clue where or what is corrupt. So after talking to Apple and going to Apple I think at this point i am not going to fight it anymore. Will have to just set up as a new phone and only get my contacts and such back.

    So my question is this. I really want to save my photos I will sacrifice my text messages for now and all my folders and organization of my apps. So I have almost 5k pics in my camera roll. So looking for input if anyone has any suggestions. I don't have a ton of space on MacBook and sketchy about iTunes photo backup. I don't have that turned on. Is there any decent 3rd party? Just looking for the least aggravating solution at this point.

    I had similar problem I suggest you upload all your photos to google drive/dropbox etc

    Also another way to do is...if you have a second iDevice around you can try Transfer app and send all your photos to a secondary iDevice. Once you're done with setting up the phone then you can transfer all your photos back.

    Thanks Darkilkusion. I only have my iPhone and MacBook. No iPad or anything. I have a drop box account just wasn't sure if it would sync everything in my photos. Some of my folders after restore always shows the spinning wheel and says downloading
