I FINALLY did the unthinkable... I cracked my Phone 4S screen...or should I say, more like shattered.   I have an appointment tomorrow morning at Apple Store (Genius Bar) to have it fixed. The Apple Care representative I spoke to today seemed to think I would receive a replacement phone rather than having my original phone's screen fixed. Given this, I want to make sure ALL my data/apps/etc is backed-up throughly and correctly so that I can perform a "seamless" restore. Which method do you prefer for a good reliable Back-up/Restore? iTunes or iCloud? And is there anything I should know when performing the back-up? Any advice is appreciated!!!

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.0.1
