Restore the iPhone from the backup created prior to the update. This is the only way to get missing SMS messages back on the device.

Hi diesel vdub
Thanks for coming back to me here
When I was upgrading from iOS 3 to 6 this is what I had to do in the first place. Backup & then Restore but there was no sign of the text messages once the phone rebooted after the upgrade.
I was going to restore again from that original backup but I wanted to see was there any other solution before repeating what I'd already done. I see that 6.1 has been released now. I wonder would it be a good idea to upgrade to this instead?
Obviously I shouldn't make a Backup of my phone in its present state (no text messages on phone) as this will delete the Backup in the Mobile Synch folder and I will lose all text messages forever?
What do you think about the above - any thoughts or advice would be really appreciated
