[iPhone] iCloud backup

Is it possible to restore a part of an icloud backup, or must you restore it all?

I had an iPhone through my former job, and when I left I had to leave the phone behind. I would like to restore my contacts and photos but don't really care about anything else.

My iCloud manage storage also shows the last backup from that phone as partial.

Any suggestions would be welcomed.

Thanks

i don't believe you can do a partial restore.

Were your contacts stored in iCloud? You should be able to just add the iCloud account and get them back. If they were stored in Exchange, you're probably hosed as they won't be in the iCloud backup and the Exchange account is locked out by your old employer.

For photos, are they in photo stream?
