    Just reverted back to WP8.1 from trying out 10 for a week and noticed that every time I sent a text it would hang up and freeze the phone. Didn't know what was going on until 3 hard resets later when I noticed that in each chat history there were duplicated of many of the messages. Basically every time I was resetting and using the restore SMS and MMS to my phone it was importing it into the ones that are automatically backed up to onedrive. So word of caution to anyone doing this, either disable the autobackup for texts for onedrive or do not restore the messages.

    Is there a way to remove contacts+message backup since all I want is it backed up to onedrive?

    after you have already restored the backup? not that I am aware of. It adds it to the onedrive backup automatically which is when you get duplicates. I would reset the phone before it is able to restore and combine the messages. I did not and I got threads that became 2-3 times as long because of the duplicates.
