    If its a temporary server issue, does that mean that all the SMS/MMS that we received since sync stopped working will not be backed up?
    We don't even know for sure what's going on, just the symptoms.

    Did anyone try using contacts+message backup app, I was thinking of doing this because my older phone still have all the old SMS/MMS in it.

    Contacts and message backup would work great had I used it, lol. My issue with it is if you use it in conjunction with the MS sync, it tends to duplicate messages.

    I haven't had my 2nd phone sync messages since Feb 7th. Tried numerous resets with various builds etc. Even tried fresh installs and restores. Not a single message from any date has downloaded since issue.

    When happened on december, after fixing on late january everyone received all sms, but someone lost some december week.
    So I can't give you an answer. For now, a regular SD backup with Contacts+Messages Backup it's a nice workaround, especially before updating phone (so you don't loose anything if something gone wrong)

    My older phone L925 (with all the old SMS) does not have SD card slot, so I cant move them like that to my L640. I tried to Contacts+Messages backup to documents and then upload backup files to one drive, but Contacts+Messages restore doesnot see this as valid location/backup. Is there workaround for my setup?

    Try using Transfer my Data, it moves contacts and sms between phones via bluetooth

    Transfer my Data is crashing (not starting) on my L640 with 14322. On L925 with 10586.218 is working OK and can transfer new SMS from L640. I tried soft reset and reinstalled app few times, still the same.
    Anyone have issues with transfer my data on latest Redstone build? Any resolutions?

    Dont know if it's appropriate to ask a new question here but here goes: Would it be a good idea to stop backup function until the old txt are back? I am afraid if creating a backup of my new messages, that would delete the current backup file on onedrive...does it work that way? Or is it a cumulative backup? I only have one backup file on my onedrive...
    Does anyone know how it works?

    I'm wondering the same about the restore SMS function and the current state of the sync server and compatibility with latest redstone insider build. I've managed to avoid a hard reset on my 950xl since getting it around release date but recently had to do one to get my band sync'ing and have lost all SMS (and Skype) history despite all settings suggesting it will sync everything and full backups done prior to hard reset. Also wondering what will happen with new backups and if they'd overwrite old ones.

    Related: a few months back I changed the sync period from 'any time' to 'past year' or so. I would really have appreciated a little popup that said 'this will permanently delete 5000 archived texts. Are you sure? (Y/N)'.

    :(

    How do you know the 5000 messages have been deleted? The only way I know to delete archived SMS is to delete them from your device WHILE sync is enabled.

    Maybe not exactly 5000, just lots of em. The reason is that being on Insider requires lots of device resets (at least that seems the standard solution to problems). So if you reduce the sync period and do a reset, years of MMS messages and texts are lost, or so it seems.

    Yes, by now it makes sense, but a warning would have been nice. "If this is your only phone this will delete all older messages from the backup server" or so would have made me think twice.

    you would think SMS sych would be perfect, then we could hard reset and play without worry, isn't that what MS want us to do when testing ?
    MS should fix such a small item so at least we can "PLAY" without losing our basic and private information being deleted.
    The one thing most people fear about having to reset or upgrade is having regrets when we lose information that we really care about.

    Hello everyone who is wondering about the SMS/MMS sync.

    All my messages have been synced and restored from build 14322 on the slow ring

    This was from a fresh cleaned reset of build 14322.

    Honestly it just takes time. all my messages just appeared yesterday or so, I didn't even noticed.

    Mine came back, but not as far back as I know Microsoft should have.

    My other phone hasn't sync'ed up any of my messages from between when it went down and I bought a new phone, so there's a one month hole in my history still.
