    I did a reset on my 4s but now how can I use iCloud to restore it. I don't want to use iTune.

    If there’s an iCloud backup from your iPhone, you can use it to restore your device.

    After erasing it, set up language and Wi-Fi (just like setting up a new device), sign in to iCloud, and then you can select which iCloud backup to use for restoring it.

    Did you backup to iCloud, before erasing your iPhone?

    If those backups completed correctly, some of them should appear when you’re restoring.

    Usually, you login to iCloud, then you’re asked whether or not you wish to restore from an iCloud backup. When you select the iCloud backup, you usually get three suggestions, if memory serves right. You can use one of these to restore your device.

    The 4s has a Micro SIM card, the 8 Plus has a Nano SIM card. You can’t use the SIM card from your 4s on the 8 Plus, you’ll need a new one.

    That SIM card is tied to your son's phone number and account. You'll need a new SIM card that can be tied to your own account. SIM cards are cheap, about $10.00 or less.

    Will you also share his phone number? If you are, then the existing SIM card can be used. If you’ll have your own phone number, separate from his, you’ll need a new SIM card.
