    Hoping someone can help. I'm not sure on the logic built into the backup and restore functionality for SMS but I bought a new 830 today and when I restored from back up initially all the texts were from like 2 years ago. I reset the phone and tried again when I realized the messages eventually populate but it takes time. So now my last restored texts are from September and it seems to have stopped there. How can I make it download the rest of my messages? Can I somehow move them off my old phone if I can't get them to restore? Old phone is a 920. Thanks

    Check the date your old phone last backed-up. Natch, that'll be the latest date your new phone can restore up to.
    ​Manually moving them isn't an easy function.

    Yeah, the backup date was yesterday so they should be up to date. Oddly enough when I woke up this morning it was up to December and now is almost up to date. Looks like it just takes a really, REALLY long time
