Ok, I have been told by genius that they can't do anything else to fix my issues until I restore my phone as new. I am actually keen to do this anyway as I have pretty much been copying from the original iphone.


Now my main concern is finding a way of backing up my text message history storing that and then adding it to me newly restored iphone 4s.


Has anyone found a surefire way of doing this?


many thanks!
