    Hey all, first post, first thread.

    I lost my iphone a couple of weeks ago and I tried reactivating my old prepaid Iphone to use while I received the new one.
    Stupid me, I plugged it into my laptop and it synced automatically overwriting my main backup. Now I have the new phone but it is automatically syncing with the latest back up I did from the prepaid phone which is useless and It seems as if the iCloud back up got overwritten as well.

    Is there a way I can restore the main backup I had prior to syncing the prepaid?

    appreciate the help, thanks.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    After you restore and it asks you setup from backup or new see if it gives you more options with the drop down menu to select an older backup than the last one you have available.
