    Restoring from an iCloud backup on my iPad (iOS 8.0.2) isn't working.
    After choosing a Wi-Fi network, signing into my iCloud account, agreeing to the terms and conditions, selecting a backup, and entering my iCloud Apple ID password, it just immediately says "Could Not Sign In - There was a problem connecting to the server."

    I can set up my device as a new iPad, sign in and use the App Store with it, but it just can't sign in to restore all my purchases and data. :/

    I've never had an issue restoring from an iCloud backup before. I guess I should also have made a regular backup in iTunes before I restored…

    Any idea how to get this to work?

    You sure the password being typed is correct? How many times have you tried? The servers could have been down at that time for whatever reason. Just a thought.
