I just had a question I was wondering if anyone could help me with it.


I had a backup of my iPhone 4 stored on iCloud.


I attempted to set up my new iPhone 4S from this backup when I recieved it. The restore went smooth until it got to the camera roll. The camera roll remained empty. I know the camera roll was set to back up originally on my old phone and could see the portion of my storage that it took up.


But on my iPhone 4S there was just no download bar for the gallery icon or any photos appearing inside my gallery/photoroll during the restore process.


Has anyone else had any trouble related to this? I also do not use photo stream as it is not ideal in my circumstance, i'd prefer to retain my photos in iCloud.


Any help would be great!

iPhone 4S, iOS 5

    I have the same problem. I restored from an iCloud backup after erasing all content. Everything's back to normal. Except for the Camera Roll. It remains empty. It only downloaded the last 15 pictures from my Photostream. For a few minutes my photos app showed "Downloading 0 from 1327 photos". After a while that was gone as well.


    I'm sure my restored iCloud backup should still contain these pictures as it states that the backup size is 4,5 GB. My camera roll was about 3,2 GB so that makes sense.


    Anyone got an idea on how to sort of restart the process that will download the photos from iCloud? I'm trying to figure this out for more than a week now and it's really starting to **** me off. Two and a half years of pictures are gone!


    Any help?
