    Hey so i went to restore my iphone today, i backed it up before hand, did the restore and now im attempting to restore it from the backup form earlier today and its just stuck on the "restoring from iphone backup" screen with a little bar just wiggling around. Its not a progress bar, its just a revolving bar thats doing nothing. My phone is also totally useable still, no "Sync" mode has been activated. I force quitted itunes a few times and it seems to have made a bunch of copies of my original backup form earlier today... weird

    Can anyone tell me how to force my iphone to restore form the backup? or is it normal that it sits at this screen for a while before anything happens... I have a TON of photos, apps and textmessages.... maybe thats why its taking so long?

    What's a "ton?" How much space? Are the pics ones you took with the phone, because if not, those are synced, not restored from a backup.
