    I have a Nokia Lumia 1020 that I have replace with a different phone. Recently I needed to retrieve some text messages from that phone. I noticed the text history only wen back ~6 months. I have a old OneDrive backup that is a couple years old. So there is a gap of about 1.5 years. My question is if backup to OneDrive now, will it back up the text messages that are not displayed on the device? Also does anyone know if I need to activate the device to do this backup? I have ATT as my carrier.

    Go to settings in the messaging app and turn on sync between devices however first make sure you are connected with the same microsoft account on the replacement phone.

    Out of curiosity what are you using as your replacement phone?
