Want to back up my iPhone 4S it says plugged in, locked, with wifi. Plugged into what? Screen locked? Got the wifi part. Haha. Hoping I can wirelessly backup then download to new iPhone 5 as I am not near my "sync" computer.

Your USB cable must be plugged on one end to your iPhone and on the other to a USB wall charger or an active USB slot on your running computer (i.e. connected to power is the keyword).

Screen locked?
press the Sleep/Wake button twice to enter into a screen-locked mode.

I would rather manually initiate an iCloud backup by going to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup > Back Up Now
