As above. There were some programs that allowed this but I tried them with my 5 on iOS 8 and no luck so I don't see them working with iOS 9. When the 9.1-9.2 JB is released I'd love to be able to set up as new and restore only sms and contacts. I know contacts can be restored via iCloud but there's still no default option to restore just SMS. And as I have an sms I can't lose I've been restoring from a backup since the 4s. So does anyone know of a way to just restore these? Or am I still, 4 year later stuck with a full restore or nothing at all?
