    Is there anyway to do this? Notes weather and calendar all synced.

    How do I get my contacts and messages back?

    Went from 6s to 7

    Just do a restore from back up on iTunes, I don't think messages are stored in icloud...

    Verify that your contacts are synced online by logging in on If they aren't, then contacts sync was probably turned off on your 6s.

    Messages are usually part of the backup file and don't show up on It should've been included in the backup, if it was performed successfully.

    I had to restore using a backup on iTunes. I tried it with icloud, but I had the same issue.
