    Are you restoring as new everytime? If you are then you hit the number of devices allowed at 5.

    Try going into itunes, preferences and then devices and delete the backups you don't need. There may be quite a few older backups.

    Is that the same thing as deleting a back up from I cloud? I had to do that the other day because my iCloud was almost full

    You may have reached the GB max for storage on icloud, so you may need to delete a few of the backups.

    Have you tried on iphone to reset all settings as new? Then do a restore.
