Okay I have an iphone 4s and i went to the apple store and theres apparently something wrong with my software because it has my 3gs data and the iphone 4s data combined together so it randomly shuts off and has crashes. Anyways they told me to do a complete wipe and to set up the iphone as a new one. Now I know how to save my music, photos, apps whatever, but how can i transfer my sms texts from my computer to the iphone. I have diskaid so i have all my texts saved on my comp but how do i transfer them onto the iphone itself??? THank you for your response

As far as I know like you said they can be transfered/copied out but not back in.
Unless your iphone is JB, and even then its a real pain to get them to show up.
I wouldnt bother with them anyway. I delete texts after a while.

Ive has my texts since 2009 I can't just delete them all. What's the jailbreak way? There's a untethered jailbreak coming out this week so I can do that

That's probably part of you problem.:D
lol
Hundreds or thousands of texts from many years back.
If you need to ask what's a JB then you shouldnt attempt it IMO.

To be honest I never done it before cause I dont save texts to begin with.
I know it can be done but it is a pain from what I heard:)
You gotta SSH into the correct folders and merge some files, edit properties etc...
