    i havent used the icloud backup yet. when i first went to enable the icloud backup to turn it on it says "your iphone will no longer back up to your computer automatically when you sync it with itunes" i still want my computer backup as well. so how do i have my icloud backup and my computer back up working with my iphone?

    You can manually back up your iPhone to your PC by right clicking it in iTunes and choosing "back up"

    You're right, it wont sync automatically but you can always back up witj your pc, even if you have icloud back up on..

    Let me ask this:

    If on iTunes I choose to backup to my computer only that's fine.
    But I can basically create two backups if I just unplug from iTunes
    and backup wirelessly through the phone, right? It doesn't turn
    off my setting on iTunes to backup to computer only when plugged
    in does it?

    When I plug my phone into my computer it obviously backs up my phone automatically like it should. My question is this. So if I enable iCloud backup it won't automatically back up my phone because the iCloud backup is on correct? But when I plug it in I can just right click on my iPhones names and hit backup and it will do that correct? Also, if I have the iCloud backup on, will my phone sync automatically to my computer when I plug it in? I don't have to manually sync now do I?

    When you enable back up in icloud the iphone wont sync automatically when connected to your computer, you have to right click on you device's name and select back up, I personally have icloud back up enable but everyweek I do a manual back up on my computer, just to be on the safe side..

    There is a difference between syncing and backing up. I understand the computer won't backup automatically but will it sync automatically when iCloud is enabled? Or neither
