IOS 5 Restoring your iPhone using iCloud

Problem:  Wanting to recover my iPhone using my iCloud account but I don’t see any option within iPhone’s settings to do a recover.

Solution:  In order to restore from iCloud, you will have to reset your iPhone.  Go to Settings – General – Reset and select “Erase All Content and Settings.”  Your iPhone will reset to factory defaults and upon reboot, will walk you through setting it up.  One of the options is to restore from iCloud backup.  Would be nice for that to be an option within the OS but until then, this will do.
