Hi. I have searched the forums for any feedback/answers to my question, and can't find any, so please forgive me if you can find otherwise. My question is this - I have an iPhone 3GS, and I'd like to try to extend the battery life by doing a restore from DFU mode and setting it up as a new phone, which I have never done. As a result, I have 3 years worth of text messages that I would prefer to keep. I know there are many ways to do this if you are jailbroken, but my past jailbreaking experiments convinced me that it slows the phone down too much, and it didn't provide that many benefits for me TBH. So - has anyone come across a way to do a restore, on a virginized, un-jailbroken iPhone, all of your SMS messages - sent, received, the lot? I have seen ways to do this, copy files from old backups to new, but haven't been able to get this to work. I have used Tansee SMS backup to back them all up in a readable format onto my PC, but I'd prefer to have them on the phone. Has anyone managed to do this yet, and if so, how? If anyone could help, I'd be very grateful. Many thanks in advance!
