Question for The Sims FreePlay

How do you get your old game back when it starts over and is trying to make you make the first sim again when you already made a bunch of sims and houses and work and then it all just dissapeared ? Because I was playing it and then my phone died and then I turned it back on and now it's making me start over. How do I get my old game back?

I don't think you can get the old game back. I do know when you have Facebook, you can save your game there. To do so, pause the game, click the cloud, and follow the steps. (Login, upload, save etc). Please note, you data will only be saved for 7 days, so upload the game every week to be sure you won't lose it again.
For now good luck rebuilding. It has benefits... I learned to save lp's when I had to start over after update!

Always look on the bright side ;-)

I had the same problem. I went onto settings and went onto the cloud. When you get into the cloud it will give you the option to download the data you had from a week ago and all of your progress comes back

I accidentally erased my city when I was cleaning up my home page. I freaked out, emailed them and looked on here. Thought I was lost forever because I never saved it anywhere!! I ended up starting to build the first couple things starting over until Daniel, the city friend said to come visit him. After that I hit the tools/setting button and hit the log in with Facebook button even though I never used it there or saved it. I hit the button and a couple of city's ca,emup from before and I found my city I lost. It will ask you if you want to permanently erase the other cities or the one you just started so say yes and your old city will come up with all the progress saved.

Something similar happened to me! Long story short I started sims like 3 years ago on my phone and then got kinda bored of it and I wanted to start again but still keep my progress that I reached on my phone so I downloaded the app on my iPod and I didn't connect to gamecenter or Facebook so that I can have two separate cities on my phone and iPod but then one day I accidentally clicked to connect to Facebook on my iPod so my progress on my phone erased and now I only have the stuff saved from my iPod so my 3 year game progress is gone

I had the game on my iPod touch in 2011, an I got really far in it. I was at like level 36, I had over 20 sims, I had a million simoleones and then I deleted the game because it made me mad. A month later I got a new phone so I got the game on there and I started a new game. Is there any way I can get my first game back?!?
