    It seems every time I backup my phone on itunes, and then try to restore a phone from that backup, I am never able to find that backup...like it wasn't actually saved. I had an iphone 4 that I backed up in twice in July before I started using a different phone (windows phone...long story), and now I have a 4s. When I plugged the 4s into itunes and tried to restore from a backup, my most recent backups are no where to be found.

    Am I doing something wrong here?! Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

    In iTunes, go to Preferences and switch to the devices tab. You can see all your backups there.

    Also are you certain you were doing full backups? If you didn't back up the iPhone 4 properly, you shouldn't be surprised by incomplete backups.

    I have been doing backups the same way since 2008, and it seems like recently they havent been working for me. Maybe something is different and I am doing it wrong...?? I have no clue. In iTunes, I have always just right-clicked on my phone in the list onthe left hand side and selected "Back Up". Its worked before, but not since my iPhone 4 before this new one.

    My back up list has back ups saved from 2008 on, but nothing from my last phone.
