    Hello,

    I was thinking of using icloud as my new backup source ...
    a couple of things i wanted to find out first though ...
    does it work in exaxtly the same way as a computer backup ? ...
    ie ...
    will it backup all of my current apps installed on my iphone, the location if them all, folders etc...
    also all of my safari history, notes... albums... photos ...
    app data ...

    I guess what I'm tryin to say is, will it backup in EXACTLY the same way as a pc backup ?

    many thanks in advance ...

    Stuart

    Hello,

    thankyou for quick reponse ...
    I was just after a more in depth experience ...

    maybe someone that has used it - and had to do a complete restore ...

    apples website only provides a brief overview of what it does ...

    many thanks ...

    That's exactly how it works. It restore SMS messages Wallpapers, settings, app placement, pictures... the whole 9 yards.
