    If your backup is on your computer, you only need to connect your phone to iTunes, then right-click on the name of your phone on the left side (if you are using iTunes 11 first go to View>Show Sidebar) and select Restore from Backup, then select the backup you want to restore from.

    Im using a new computer. ive never backed anything up to it until today. thats why im so confused as to how i came across the option to back up to all those old icloud backups. i saved everything i needed & once again restored my phone just now, & took the same steps i did when i restored it to that july backup but now its only giving my the option to update it from one it did today. could it be because i have updated to the new itunes?

    You don't restore to iCloud backups using your computer.  If the backup you are looking for is an iCloud backup, you have do this as I indicated in my earlier post: erase all content & settings, go back through the setup screens, choose Restore from iCloud backup, then choose the iCloud backup you want to restore from.
