Is there a way to restore an icloud backup on an iphone without resetting the device?  The iphone indicates an icloud backup was taken last night, but the only info I can find on restoring talks about choosing a restore point while going through the Setup Assistant on a new iOS 5 device.  If I do have to reset the iphone, what's the minimum reset I can do, Reset All Settings, Erase All Content and Settings, Reset Network Settings or what?  I'm trying to restore my Contacts and Calendar which seem to have reverted to an old copy in some way I cannot understand.


Thanks.  Steve

iPhone 4, iOS 5.1.1, iCloud
