Do you think text messages will ever be saved

Onto the cloud? Like if you want to setup " as new" and then be able to get your old text messages back. I don't see why this is hard for apple to do.

If you want to save your text messages why not just restore from backup? That way they are in "the cloud" already.
I know some people don't like to restore from backup, but I haven't restored as new since 2008 and I don't have any problems.

Because that's not how "restoring as new" works. If you want them either restore from a backup or use on of the multitude of programs that can accomplish this for you, I haven't lost a text since 2007 and my iPhone 2G.

Have you ever restored your phone as new?

The fact there's no other way to restore texts is why I've never managed to restore as new to solve a hardware problem.

I realize there isn't always a fix for every software problem but abandoning backups isn't always the easy option.

All you need is iBackupBot.

Use iBB to backup this folder:
Library/SMS
sms.db is the main database that has all your texts
If you have any attachments they are in the Attachments folder

Then you can use iBackupBot to manually restore these files to your restored iPhone.
