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
