    Hello - I deleted all the text messages from someone inadvertently which I need to recover.
    I have a local backup from a couple days ago, but don't want to restore the entire phone from this backup.

    What is the best way of extracting the messages and restoring back to the iPhone ? Is this even possible ?

    Thanks..

    Try a program called iTools. Google it. It can read local itunes backups and extract data. Then import just specific pieces.

    I used this too because I wanted to get rid of all media files in my iMessages.
    Works great.
