I understand if you backup your phone before messages are deleted it will restore If you "restore from backup" but if I delete my messages before syncing my phone is it impossible then to retrieve them?

    Yes, unless they were included on a previous backup or an icloud backup.


    You can check which itunes backups you have by going to..


    Windows - Edit menu > Preferences > Devices tab

    Mac - iTunes menu > Preferences > Devices tab.


    Or you can goto settings > icloud > storage and backup > manage storage and then click on your phone to see when the latest backup was done.


    Hope this helps.
