    have you checked in messaging settings -the option should be there
    Try after a soft reset and checking for app updates
    Messages are synced with your account but not in onedrive

    ...by the way, i can not 'quote and post.' I can only post, so the problem continues but at least i can access WC through the desktop app!

    I'm using the browser so quoting isn't an issue for me. I can't use the app since I have xp on this pc

    There was a report a couple of years back that the messages were being stored in your email as conversations or something similar - and there was a way to access them. I tested it but it didn't work for me. Maybe you can try it http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...ed-online.html

    There's also this app: How to view Windows Phone SMS on your Windows PC or tablet - MSPoweruser
