My iPhone keeps saying that it has not had an iCloud backup for x amount of weeks and will do so when it is plunged in and on WiFi. It does register a computer backup. I go to iCloud in settings and choose backup now, and it doesn't. Is there something that I am doing wrong?

I have a Jailbroken 4s on 6.1.3 and only did an icloud backup on it yesterday.... couldn't do a full backup as more than 5gb of photos.... lol

but it worked.

I then signed in to using a web browser on p.c. and it showed my backup.

only thing I cannot do is backup my notes...... that's a real bugbear... I've been looking for software that would sync or transfer contacts, sms, notes, music, photos, messages, voice memos, whatsapp messages, alarm settings. to a note 4, but haven't managed to find anything yet.

If you have x GB of total storage space on your iCloud account, you could need up to 2x GB Available NVRAM storage space on your iPhone to process the backup. x starts at 5 for free, and can be upgraded to: 20 for US$10.99/yr; 50 for US$0.99/mo; 200 for US$2.99/mo; or 1000-1024 (1TB) for US$9.99/mo. You can check how much space your iPhone's last successful backup to iCloud took in Settings / iCloud / Storage / Manage Storage.

I deactivated drop box for iCloud, I need to rethink that tactic.
