If you made a backup using icloud, then restore your 5 to that backup.  http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4859

  • I started using my new iphone 5c before syncing to iCloud and have lost all my messages. Can I get them back? Should I have registered the phone as 'new iphone'?

    i got my new iphone a week ago. i started using it straight away, before i knew about icloud and that i could sync all my contacts, etc to the new phone. i then turned on icloud for contacts - this worked fine. today i tried putting my music onto my phone. i clicked 'recognise a B's iphone' in itunes - this has synced music and apps. the only problem is that i have lost all my text messages from the last week. the phone is showing old messages from december 2012 only! can i delete these and get my recent messages back??
    thanks.

    You did more than sync the new iPhone with iTunes since syncing with iTunes does not include text messages.
    The first time a new iPhone is connected to iTunes that is used to sync with another iPhone or iOS device, you are prompted to transfer the backup for the other iPhone or iOS device or set up the device as a new iPhone.
    The former replaces all data on the iPhone that is included with the selected backup for the other iPhone or iOS device. The latter does not.
    If a backup for your new iPhone was not created with iCloud or if created and has been updated since the backup was transferred from the other iPhone or iOS device, the previous data on the new iPhone is gone.

  • HT201272 iv recently restored my iphone 4 and i lost all my music how do i get them back without paying for them again

    ive recentley restored my iphone abd lost all my music how can i get them back without paying for them again

    Why did you restore without transferring your music to your computer?
    If you are in the U.S., then you can use the newly released beta version of the cloud to get your music.

  • I would like to go for older version of one of the app ( snipsnap ). previously i used to have in my iphone but during synching i did not got option to transfer apps to library so i lost all my apps. how can i get snipsnap v1.3 again?

    You appear to have an iPhone 5. Snipsnap 2.4.2, the current version, says it works on iPhone 5, iOS 5.0 or later. Why do you want an out of date version of the app?

  • Updated my iphone 4 to iOS 5.0.1 and then lost all my apps. how can I restore them?

    updated my iphone 4 to iOS 5.0.1 and then lost all my apps. how can I restore them?

    As long as the apps are still available in the store, and you use the same iTunes account as you originally used to buy them, then you should be able to re-download them for free : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2519 . If you download them to your computer's iTunes you could then try restoring to your backup and see if that restores them and their settings/content back to your iPhone - a backup doesn't contain the actual apps, just their content/settings, so for the restore to work fully iTunes needs access to the apps so that it can restore them.

  • HT201272 I did the last update, there was a 'catastrophic failure' i had to restore my iPhone and now have lost all my apps, how do i get them back?

    Hi All,
    I did the last update, there was a 'catastrophic failure' i had to restore my iPhone and now have lost all my apps, how do i get them back? Any ideas?
    Thanks
    Clare

    All of  your apps should be in iTunes on the computer, simply sync them back.
    If they are not, go into the purchase history and download them again.

  • HT4528 I updated my iphone to ios 6.0.1 and selected icloud.  I lost all my contacts - how do i get them back?

    I updated my iphone to ios 6.0.1 and selected icloud.  I lost all my contacts - how do i get them back?

    No.  Anything that was created after your last backup will be gone.
    Use iCloud to automatically backup your device, usually once every 24 hours.

  • Updated iphone 5 with ios 6.1 - lost all Sim contacts - how do I get them back?

    I updated my iphone 5 last night to the latest update 6.1 (and signed into the cloud for the first time) and now all my SIM contacts are gone....only my Facebook ones remain. How can I get them back?

    The iPhone doesn't store any information on the SIM at all. Updating the phone should not have affected anthing on the SIM. Are you sure you're not talking about contacts stored somewhere else?
    Did you try re-importing the contacts from the SIM if that's where they came from?

  • New iPhone contacts accidentally synced to Exchange server, how can I get them into my Mac?

    I've been adding a lot of contacts on my iPhone lately and now I wanted them synced to the Address Book on my Mac. This just wouldn't work for me, none of the new contacts would turn up on the Mac, no matter what I tried. After pulling my hair plenty it turns out I had the iPhone set up to sync contacts with the Exchange server from work instead of with my Mac.
    Question is, how do I get the contacts from either the Exchange account or the iPhone into my Mac?
    There doesn't seem to be a way of changing, on the iPhone, to which account an already added contact should sync. Or is there?
    I must say it's pretty ******** that you cannot just choose to import all contacts from the iPhone to the Mac. Or, at the very least, have the option to choose to what account you want to sync a new contact WHEN YOU'RE ADDING IT. As you can choose between all your calendars when adding an appointment.

  • HT4910 I have many notes on my notes app  Last week the notes  on my ipad disappeared  while they were  still on my iphone.  i have so many notes, how can i get them from my phone to my pad  thought icloud did this automatically from onedevice to another

    I have many notes on my iphone and ipad notes app  They used to be synced between the two  Suddenly they disappeared from my ipad and then from my iphone.,  The notes came back to my iphone but not to the ipad.  How can they be  synced together and how can they stay on my devices without icloud taking them off.,

    Welcome to the Apple community.
    I'm not sure whether this works with notes, (it works with contacts etc) Paul might be worth a try:
    Try turning off notes syncing in your settings > iCloud and then turning them back on, hopefully you will be given the option to merge your notes. Otherwise I am afraid you are going to have to transfer them manually in the manner which you have already described.

  • I no longer have an iphone but need downloads of previous purchases. how do i get them. im really not good with computers so i need it dumbed down please

    i changed phones from iphone to lg g3 ad need previous purchases to get some of my games downloaded onto my new phone. im dumb when it comes to computers so i need it broken down/easy to follow instructions

    You can potentially redownload previous iTunes purchases (apps, music etc) on your computer's iTunes by clicking on your id towards the top right of the iTunes screen and then clicking Purchases on the popup (I'm assuming that you have the current version of iTunes on your computer). But for apps unless you have an iOS device to install it on then I don't see what redownloading it will achieve, what you will be redownloading is just the game, it does not include any purchase history within it.
    If you want to view your purchase history (e.g. order numbers, receipt numbers) then you can view that via the Store > View Account menu option on your computer's iTunes. Is that what 'technical support' want, so that they can try and link your iPhone progress of the game to your Android purchase of the game ?
