    Does itunes or iphone support some form of backing up sms.It would be great to have that feature.
    I know that itunes backs up iphone occasionally and im assuming the sms get backed up too.

    But to organize or see all my sms on screen n save them etc would be nice.

    I thought it did, but when I used my back up for a new iphone the messages didn't transfer.

    I just received a new iphone and restored it from my backup. This time the sms were included. The only difference this past time was that I didn't need to upgrade the firmware before I restored the new phone.
