I just fumbled my way through my iOS5 upgrade on my iphone 3gs. At first I had no contacts, music or apps, even though I had just backed them up to my Macbook. I then figured out that when I told it to "Restore From Backup" it wasn't going to get anything from the empty icloud categories that were toggled to "on" in settings. I turned them off and clicked "Restore From Backup" again. I then had everything that was missing, but still no apps or music.

I know there's probably a simple solution, or a control somewhere that I don't know about that will re-install my apps (and hopefully music) from my computer to my phone, and I was hoping someone could walk me through it. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
-Mark

He he, I just did that with my synced photos; I spent a week wondering why they had disappeared from the devices.
Alls well that ends well

Cheers
