    A couple of hours ago I successfully downgraded my iPhone 4 (GSM) from iOS 7.0.4 to 6.1.3, yay! I followed this guide http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1613532 and planned on restoring from the backup I made before I downgraded. Therefore, I modified the backup as the guide I mentioned above told me to. Unfortunately, the backup didn't work and iTunes started to automatically sync my applications to my iPhone... and that worked it self out pretty well! I did not get the data of my apps, which I planned on, but that's okay.
    My photos, contacts, reminders and notes were also there, woho!:p

    However, all of my messages, both ordinary texts and iMessages, were not on my iPhone. What I do have is the messages "files" on my Mac:

    From this folder ("Library"):
    To the "SMS" folder:

    I guess that it is those files I want on my iPhone(?)


    Some relevant information may be that when I opened iBackupBot and checked the latest backup of my device (after the downgrade), all of the messages were in the backup!

    This is the screen that shows up when I chose the latest backup:
    If I click on the "Message" button I get to this page:
    http://gyazo.com/6eda54f02571c7754c3d0b1c1883eb2c And that is all of my text messages!

    "Hooray!", I thought, "I just restore my iPhone from that backup (in iBackupBot) and I should be done!" So I restored it to my iPhone but I have still not any messages in my Messages app.

    Does anyone know why it is like that and, more importantly, how to fix it?:)

    Thanks in advance!:)
