    I've recently had to wipe my iPhone 3G and, obviously, I now want to restore from a previous backup...Luckily enough I made a backup yesterday so I know all my messages etc are still around on my mac (somewhere!), the problem is as follows..

    I click restore, select my 3.0 firmware and my iPhone restores, no problem..it then asks me which backup i'd like to use, I select the one i want and the progress bar appears and after about 10 mins it completes at which point I would assume it has synced my messages, notes etc back to my iPhone, just as i left it (obviously apart from the music and apps)...but it hasnt, i just get what looks like a default home-screen with no notes or messages...Can anyone shed any light on how i get my messages back as I have some important messages I really dont want to lose...

    Thanks in advance!

    UPDATE: After restoring again I now have my mail and notes etc all back on my phone, everything except my texts, is it even possible to retrieve them?..

    See the above and the thread that's linked. Supposedly your texts are backed up.
