I was installing the latest update on my fiances iphone 4s. Then it stopped and I got some text saying the update wouldn't go. The phone was then locked with and I was prompted to connect it to itunes. Also hade a message about the simcard not being correct, that disappeared though. Then I had to do a backup and reset the phone. "Ok", fine I'll use the backup I just made - but no! Now the back up was too big! Bit above 14 Gb which I after som googling understand is more than "the basic" package? Anyway, I didn't have any recent backups so now I got the evil eye from my fiance as I write… is this solveable? What happened? Did the update get mixed into the backup thus making it a bigger file? The phone was almost full when I started the update…  I do have a backup from september which is abot 12 Gb. Can I use this somehow?
