Can I back up to icloud without using wi-fi as the wi-fi option on my iphone is greyed out and won't turn on

I have an appointment with Apple store later this week and want to be able to back up my phone to icloud before I go. Can this be done without using wi-fi. If it can, how do I do it?

Thanks Diesel, I've tried connecting 2 iTunes & selecting backup 2 iCloud but it will only back up to computer.
I've tried going into settings & restrictions 2 change settings there (as a google search suggested) but I can't remember password so it won't let me in to it. Do u have any other suggestions or any idea what I can do 2 get in restrictions without password?
Thanks

    Have you tried a soft-reset ? Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider if it appears), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.

  • I have recently copied my iTunes to a new computer using the instructions from Apple site, via an external drive. My iPod will not sync on the new computer. The option to sync automatically is greyed out and it won't let me set it. How do I resolve?

    I have recently installed iTunes on a new Windows 8 laptop and copied from my old XP system using an external drive. This all went ok. The problem is that i can't get my iPod classic to sync on the new laptop. I did a factory reset and re-install. It still won't sync. When I hit the 'sync' icon it does nothing. In the Options screen the option to automatically sync is greyed out and doesn't allow me to enter anything in the box. How can i resolve this?

    You need iTunes on the computer. There is no iTunes for your phone. See:

    You will need to restore your device as New to remove a Restrictions passcode. Go through the normal process to restore your device, but when you see the options to restore as New or from a backup, be sure to choose New.

    If the steps in the article TJBUSMC1973 linked didn't resolve your issue, then the next step would be to have your phone serviced at an Apple store. Good luck

  • My iPhone screen went black and won't turn back on.

    Yesterday, my iPhone 4S screen went black and won't turn back on. So I tried just letting charge but after an hour nothing happened, so then I switched out the chargers and made sure the outlet I was using worked. But it still was black. Then I did a little research and I tried to put it into DFU mode but my power button has been broken for a few months now, so that didn;t work either. Then I tried restoring it, but my computer didn't recognize it!!! So then over night I let it rest with no power source connected to it. This morning I plugged it back into a power source and it showed the charging icon. I'm pretty that means it's still running, but I'm not an expert. PLEASE HELP!

    If you have got a different USB Sync cable try to charge your iPhone with that as there are possibilities that your current USB cable or Power Adapter is not Charging your iPhone. If it still doesn't work make an appointment to Nearest Apple Genius Bar

  • My iPod Touch cut out and won't turn back on. What has happened?

    iOS: Wrong passcode results in red disabled screen
    If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not be present. Refer to Updating and restoring iPhone, iPad and iPod touch software.

  • IPhone 5 shut down and won't turn back on

    My phones screen turned a blue/greenish color and shut down and will not turn back on :(

    I'm having the same issue with my iPhone5.  It just started yesterday afternoon.  The "hard reset" as you suggested worked once.  However, it shut down again only one hour later.  It didn't turn on (even with the hard reset) for three hours when the hard reset worked again.  I hooked it up to iTunes and restored my phone and thought that it would fix the issue.  But after being on for about two hours, my screen got vertical lines then turned green and shut off again.  I haven't been able to turn it back on no matter what I do all night and all day today.
    It doesn't matter that the phone is plugged in or have 100% battery power.  It just won't turn on again.
    I have an appointment at my local Apple Genuis Bar, but I'm not sure what they can do as I'm not sure if this is a software or a hardware issue.

  • My iPhone just shut off and won't turn back on

    My iPhone 4 just automatically shut off and now will not turn back on. I have tried plugging it to the wall and into my laptop but nothing is working.

    Connect iPhone to the Wall Charger for 10 minutes, it may turn ON itself. If still nothing, keep on charger and Reset, hold both home and power buttons for about 20 seconds until the iPhone begins to start.

  • HT1766 my iphone just went black and won't turn on what can I do?

    Help! My iphone 3gs was working just fine. My granddaughter picked it up and jerked it out of the charger and it went black. I have tried pushing the home & power button together, going to itunes to restore and nothing helps. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks Terri

    Did you try any of the reset steps, etc. outlined in some of these forums or pretty much do nothing until it started working again? Also, do you have an iPhone 4 as Sam The AMAZING does?
    (I'm desperately grasping straws to figure out whether or not I've exasperated all options and my iPhone is lost forever...)
    Thanks, L

  • HT201250 can I back up two different Macs using time machine to the same external hard drive?

    I have a MacBook Pro and a Intel Power Mac Tower.  The Power Mac is backed up to a 4 TB external hard drive using Time Machine.  Can I also back up the MacBook Pro to the same 4TB hard drive using its time machine without altering any of the Power Macs backed up files on the 4TB hard drive?

    Yes, as long as the backup drive is large enough.
