    I have iOS 8 on my iPhone and OS X Yosemite on my Mac. I have lots of messaged on my Mac, but none of them are on my iPhone. How do I get them to sync?

    Not sure what you're actually asking..

    Are you asking why your old messages from your Mac arent showing up on your iPhone? Did you happen to just activate iMessage on your iPhone?

    It's not supposed to sync old messages.

    Yes. I just got the iPhone and it doesn't have my messages on it. Is it not supposed to?

    it's not. because the messages are pushed to your devices, they're not stored.

    So if you activate it, the only messages you'll receive is after signing in.
