    I'm testing it, there's years and tons of messages backupped in OneDrive since my first Lumia switching on.
    It seems nothing was lost, even there will be hours for downloading all (a little slow)

    Thanks to the forumer who signaled it

    I'll take what I can get. Thank you developer!
    I can live without reliable sms syncing while running preview builds and such. But eventually, I want ALL my historical sms messages to be back on ALL my devices.
    This app gave me peace of mind by verifying that all those missing text messages are still safely in the cloud!

    I should note that I have great respect for the difficulty that is faced by the Microsoft developers that are currently burdened with the messaging code for W10(M). It is literally a moving target and compatibility between multiple versions of local device code and cloud storage\sync relationships has got to be a nightmare. It will be nice when Windows 10 is a couple of years old.

    Ok, there are news for now...
    I let my pc downloading sms for hours (so slooow), and app stops to 2015 October messages.
    I found everything since my first Lumia switch on.
    I didn't anything on 2015 November, I got my old faithfull 520 as always in release ring for catching threshold builds

    Same result here. I downloaded several years worth of SMS messages, but it stops at 10/30/2015
    There is an obvious change that took place at that time. I suspect it was a server-side(cloud) change?
    Perhaps this app can't access the messages after the hypothetical change? Is it because of a change in format or location\path, or access method?

    Would be interesting to find out. Surely Windows 10 Mobile didn't stop backing up to the cloud at that moment?

    Nope! Via the "Windows Phone Message Backup" app, I can only see from roughly 06/2014 through to 11/19/2015, myself

    I used it as you suggested yesterday and it seems to have "awoken" something because my SMS just synched back into my phone directly!

    That is fantastic news - I just wish that there was some of that magic dust for everyone who has problems with SMS backup/restore (or sync). :) Nevertheless, it is good to hear that you had some excellent luck with getting your text messages back! Congrats!

    As I've previously wirtten on another thread (this is a recurring issue), I believe the big change occured end of October last year (I remember, we were in the UK for Halloween ^^), between builds 10549 and 10572. 10549 and below, including WP, would restore SMS by SMS. Since 10572, it restores thread by thread, so obviously something has changed server-side.
