    I was using an iPhone 5s Where in Jan (10.2.0) and restored data to a new iPhone 7 Plus 128 (10.2.1)
    Now since restore I have seen couple of problems:

    1. Cellular Data Usage Settings don't update: Meaning No matter how much data I use on cellular network, it keeps showing 0mb or 5-10 mb, with almost all apps showing 0mb data usage. Even system services show zero mb usage.

    2. Messaging app crashes from time to time. (The native messaging app)

    It may be that the backup you restored from is the cause of the problems. Might be best to restore your iPhone 7+ to new status and start over without using the backup. You can always re-download all your apps from Apple again. However, you may lose some data that way - like for games and possibly messaging and notes.

    Yeah I was looking for a solution which dint involve starting new, as that would mean losing years of data...

    Losing data? You are still able to backup any data you want to keep to a Mac or simply an external HDD.

    You could iPhone 7+ to new status, then transfer data from your old iPhone to new iPhone directly. But you need to use phone to phone data transfer app.
