I got some advice from a Genius when I was having my MacBook Pro worked on that before downloading iOS 7 it's good to restore your phone as new and download apps from the App Store. Seems like a good idea, but he mentioned that Messages will disappear. Is that accurate? I've read somewhere that iCloud saves them. I'm going to use iCloud to get my contacts and other settings back. I guess I just need someone to explain this process in non-Genius speak. I understand going into iTunes and clicking "Restore iPhone" and saving a backup just in case things go horribly wrong. Just need to know how to get contacts and stuff restored. I get that I'll be spending some time redownloading my apps from the App Store.
