    A thought just hit me. I have messages backup turned on, but, seeing that I cannot actually see them, in SkyDrive or Outlook (I've tried most of the different ways posted here for seeing them in Outlook) how do I know they are, actually, backing up, short of restoring my phone?

    I haven't heard of any other way. Though I wouldn't go through the trouble, you could always grab a 520/521 and see if all your messages get correctly put on it. Then, keep the phone as a backup or return it.

    Do MMS pictures also show back up?

    Since they're in your outlook folder, I expect that they're synced in the same way as the email is. I'm assuming therefore that if my email is syncing properly, so are my text messages.

    I had to perform a hard reset of my phone fairly recently (forgot my wallet password), and all my old texts came back afterwards.

    Seems that we have to live in hope that it is working.
