    Hi All,

    I just came from my local apple store and i'll be swapping my iPhone 5 for a refubished one due to software and hardware problems. I haven't done so yet because i wanted to backup all my date, pictures etc. The employee who assisted me said that due to your phone having a software problem, when i do get my new iPhone i shouldn't "Restore from Backup" to just set it up as "New" and just sync my phone to my computer or iCloud. Everything will be recovered such as apps, contacts, settings etc., but not pictures and text messages. I know that pictures can be easily just be copied and pasted onto your desktop, but what about text messages? Are there any apps or programs that i can use to simply backup my text messages on my old phone and restore it onto my new phone?

    I don't think so, there are some apps that can help save you massages on your computer, but to get them back on the phone, only restore from backup, I am afraid.
