    i swear i just saw the thread on here about how to extract sms and stuff then put it back onto a new phone but i can't find it.

    i got a new 6+ today and want to transfer ONLY my sms/mms but still setup as new. hopefully someone knows where the thread is and can link. tried searching but i can't narrow it down. thanks in advance

    you just need to

    1) create a backup of your old phone via iTunes (this is already probably done as with each sync, iTunes would backup your iphone messages, contacts, settings, etc)
    2) restore your new iphone from the backup you created.

    I don't want to do that.... In my post I said I wanted to setup as new NOT restore. Someone just posted the other day how to do it
