    Is there a way to do this? My phone is not jailbroken and i don't wish to jailbreak my phone. I tried iBackupBot, but it didn't work for me. I understand there is software like PhoneView which allow download of text and other info to computer, but I am not looking for that. I am looking to restore my iPhone as new, but only restore texts back to my phone. Can anyone help? Thanks.

    I'm not aware of any way to accomplish that. In the past, I had customers (Apple Store) forward important txt msgs to an email account.

    This was only necessary when they wanted a clean install but had saved txt msgs for personal reasons.
