before messages where stored in the cloud, if i accidentally deleted a thread, with the next text to (or from) that person, the previous history returned. today (storing in icloud), a new message from someone i deleted this morning does NOT show the previous texts. any way to retrieve them? otherwise, whats the point of the icloud sync? all this worked fine before... --- Post Merged, Jul 13, 2017 --- anyway, i just disabled 'store in icloud' on my mac & iphone (eating up a lot of my storage). am not seeing the point of this...? my messages are always in sync on both devices, what's the value in the new option?
