Hey Pam003!
 
During the setup process after a factory reset, you should be offered the option to restore from old phone, or from an online backup.
 
I'm not certain that backing up to an SD card will result in a restore, since the SD is usually formatted to work with only one device. Factory restore essentially makes a phone into a new device. So, the SD card from the phone before it was restored is likely to not work in the newly restored phone. 
 
Is the prompt to restore from the old phone/from online backup not showing up for you?
