    I restored my phone but found I'm missing all my text messages from 9/22-10/02. I'm pretty sure I set it to back up my text messages on the old phone and backed up right before resetting it. Is there a way to see what your most recent back is online though the WindowsPhone.com web site?

    It is possible to have more than one backup. I don't know of a way to see them, though. When you reset the phone, you're given a choice to choose from available backups. If there's only one, only one choice.

    As for backing up texts, you said you turned it on right before resetting the phone. Unfortunately, turning it on doesn't necessarily do a backup right away. There's no manual "back up now" button. I wish I could say how long it would be before the backups are done, but I can't.

    Thanks. Ugh. MS making this harder than it should be, again. :(

    Guess I was just impatient. The newer texts did show up after a while.

    Oh, yeah - I've watched them populate slowly several times. Didn't think to mention that.
