    I'd like to bump this thread.

     

    Similarly, I have to restore as a new phone since my software or something is buggy. I've restored from both an iTunes and iCloud backup and still the standby and usage times are near equal (under Settings --> Usage) indicating something's running almost all the time. My last resort is to set it up as a new phone before I go in for a phone replacement. BUT I would like to keep my game save data (I'm NOT restarting 2 years worth of angry birds) and text messages, etc... music obv gets synced back from iTunes and I can reset settings, but can I get the texts and app save data back? I'm willing to "dig into files" to do this, but the links above seem to not work (I tried the one that another user tried, where you copy the .plist files and the one hex file)

    I'm guessing there isn't a way to look at your text on your computer for free.

    I would like to know whether my text messages are backed up once I back up on the mac, please? I need to restore my phone to factory settings and am afraid to lose my text messages. Is there a video link to say how you can back up texts on the mac into the iTunes please? Thank you in advance.

    If you are going to backup phone And restore from same backup file yes they will all come back as it was. But just texts won't be able to.

    I had a lot of MMS texts with my GF. I used the Decipher program to save them to my iMac. I doubled checked the folder I saved them to and they were all there. Ater I deleted them from my 4s my "other" went from 3.17 down to 1.67. A nice surprise was that the program also found texts that I tought were gone from my old 3g. The program cost $19.95, you have to decide if its worth it for you.

    Usually, iTunes will automatially backup your iPhone when you sync with iTunes. If you have the backup, then you can recover deleted sms messages on the iPhone 4 will be easily:

     

    Here are the steps:
    Click the "File" menu and select "Devices" > "Restore from Back up".
    Or
    Open the iOS device's "Summary" tab. There are two ways to access this:
    Click the device button in the upper right corner. (If viewing the iTunes Store, click the Library button in the upper right corner. The device button will then be visible.)
    From any view in iTunes, click the "View" menu and select "Show Sidebar". Select your iOS device in iTunes under "Devices:.
    Click the "Restore Backup" button.

    You can use this method in order to export your iPhone contacts to your comptuer.export-iphone-sms.png

    To restore however, you must use iTunes or iCloud and back up the iPhone messages, then restore the iPhone to factory settings and select from the list of iTunes/iCloud backup entries you had previously made.

    If your SMS are stored on your iPhone, use TouchCopy to view and copy them to your Mac. They will be saved as .html files.

     

    Alternatively, you can extract SMS from your iPhone backups on your Mac by using a program called iBackup Extractor. This will also extract other files from your iPhone backup like call logs, photos, browsing history, etc.

    Don't think so. A device like that doesn't usually have a "Trash" directory like a computer. Once you delete something it is marked as free space.

     

    It's possible you could take it to a data recovery place and have them recover the messages, but that would be expensive.

    Since this thread is getting a bit more activity about deleted text-message recovery now, here's a little more detail on how that works:

     

    When text messages are deleted within the Messages app on the phone, the entry for that message is just marked as "erased". It will be overwritten with a new message at some future point, or the messages list will get cleaned up and the deleted rows will be truly removed (as a user, you have no control about when either of these happen.) Most of these tools, including the one I work on (Decipher TextMessage), work by looking through the text-message database and finding things that look like the structure of messages.

     

    Many of the messages can be recovered this way, but not all (they get overwritten or are too garbled to recognize.) Decipher TextMessage also shows you some things that look like they could be a message, even if we can't really recognize the structure. We call those "fragments."

     

    Good luck to you if you're trying to find deleted text messages! Feel free to send us an email if you have questions!

     

    I may receive some form of compensation, financial or otherwise, from my recommendation or link.

    Have you accidentally deleted them from your iPhone 5? I did the same thing a couple weeks a go. Here is the solution I found:

    If you have back up your text messages, you can restore from the backup.

    Look at this tutorial from Apple:

    If you have no backup for your data on iPhone, you cannot recover your lost messages of iPhone easily,  iPhone data recovery software is your last shot! I used iPhone Data Recovery and it worked well. Give it a shot!

    Hello,

     

    So does anyone have any solutions for restoring SMS back to iPhone since IOS 7 AND able to use it?

     

    Earlier attempts that failed:

    Wondershare

    Diskaid(cons your money. don't buy from them)

     

     

    I tried the iBackupBot and even though now I have an intact phone with all my SMS in one place, I can't send out any SMS at all. In other words, the SMS function is useless. I tried using Wondershare and the same would result.  I've heard the earlier result of using iphonebrowser to change the settings, but I haven't try it yet and would like to know if this method works or not before I go through the pains of installing and doing this and that (I've been doing this for almost a week and a half and I'm extremely exhausted mentally when dealing with this.)

     

    Finally, my iphone is not jailbroken yet. Can ios7 be jailbroken at this time?
