No that is the whole point of iCloud. You do not need a PC to start up the device.

So in iTunes, I click RESTORE, it wipes everything out. Then on the iPhone it will say SLIDE TO SET UP, and I click SET UP AS NEW IPHONE instead of restore from iCloud.
Now how do I get my contacts, calendars, bookmarks, etc back? The apps and music I will sync manually via iTunes after

Why didn't you choose 'Restore from iCloud backup' when you first setup your iPhone? Anyway, if that's the case, go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase all contents and settings then this time you choose 'Restore from iCloud backup'. Cheers!

No one understands what this guy means.
I have the same question. How do you restore from iCloud after Initial hook up. I had cellular connection but not wifi. So I couldn't restore from iCloud. So is there a way after the fact of booting up the phone after doing a "reset all setting and erase all content?" I had to do this at work because Siri didn't work all day for me. I reset network settings 5-6 times. Nothing worked. So after 12 hours of no Siri I just decided to do a full reset.
Am I going to have to do it again at home where I have wifi to do a restore from

When I purchased my iPhone 4S today at Apple, the guy told me they are told to setup as new, and therefore he made me bypass the 'restore from iCloud backup'. I discovered when I got home that all my SMS messages and app settings are gone. Is there a way to get it all back?

I just received the iphone 4s (i had iphone 4 until today) and when I started it I wanted to restore everything from icloud backup in order not to lose anything. BUT, I am looking for siri and there is none. HOW can I get it?

Go to settings>general>Siri> and turn it on.
