    so I bought an unlocked 5s today, and restored from a backup of my old 5c. Is this something I should have done, considering the switch from 32 to 64 bit? My 5c was getting great battery life.

    I guess I could restore and start as new but that's such a hassle :p Anyone else do this?

    I've never restored from backup, it always causes some problem, I just sync my data.

    No, pretty sure that is the only thing that doesn't sync.

    and thats one of things you cant get any other way onto the phone which means for pack rats like me a restore from backup is the only way.

    I have restored from backup since iPhone 4 to 5 then to 5s. There is no noticeable issue(s). Isn't that the point of iCloud backups?
