How to restore SMS after clean phone restore??

Hi all,

I just got an iphone5 and when i restore from my backup, it messes up my data service. I tried resettting network settings and resetting all settings, but the only thing that fixes my data is if i erase all content and reset all settings, or do a full restore and setup as a new phone.

my Q is, i dont mind losing and setting up all the apps, but i dont want to lose my SMS history. is there anyway to get a clean phone and restore only my SMS?? i've been googling around and so far i only found 1 possible solution, it is the backuptrans tool, but I'm looking for a free solution

any help is appreciated, thanks!

A program called iPhone SMS Backup & Restore can help. Try it.
