    This is still on my lock screen even though I can fully use my phone.

    Photos are still missing, but I'm not sure what else is syncing.

    I set up my phone yesterday at about 330pm. Why am I still getting this message? Where are all my photos?

    Any ideas?

    PS - Anyone else using Viber and having a hard time getting that set up due to verification code not sending?

    Mine did that too, from noon to 11pm, and then it suddenly finished. A) give it time or B) backup your old phone to your laptop and restore that way because it's much faster.

    Try to restart the phone. Sometimes this can help restart a stuck backup.

    I ended up stopping the restore as it appears all of my data was recovered. The only thing I noticed was a couple of my known wifi network passwords I had to enter again.

    Had to do the same thing with my 6, but not on the retina mini. *shrug* Didn't seem like I lost any data.

    I believe in iCloud backup settings there is a stop restore link.

    This happenend to me too and it would ask for to login to random icloud accounts. I ended up restoring all content and settings and setup the phone as new, not restoring from my icloud or computer.

    My phone is now perfect!
