I have been advised by Genius that I should do a full restore as new to sort out some software glitches.


I understand that be doing this I will lose all of my text messages. This terrifies me! Is there a way of doing a clean restore from new and keeping my text messages? I am using iphone4s.


Many many thanks in advance for any help offered!
