I'm trying to back up and restore my iPhone using iTunes in order to attempt to get my supposedly successful carrier unlock from Chronic Unlocks to work. This is what Chronic Unlocks support recommended.
I have synced my iPhone to my computer in iTunes and confirmed that I have a recent backup.
I followed the instructions from Apple under "restore from a backup", but when i ctrl-click on my iPhone under "devices" in iTunes, "Restore from backup" is not visible in the contextual menu. It only shows:
- Transfer purchases
- Back up
- Reset warnings
How can I restore my iPhone using this backup I have?
- Mac OS 10.9.4
- iTunes 10.7 (update: had to downgrade from iTunes 11 using these instructions in order to have iTunes recognize and back up my iPhone running iOS 5).
- iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1
