    I am taking my phone in for some technical repairs and I'm afraid that they'll have to reset my phone in which I will then lose all of my text messages.
    Is there a way to transfer texts to your PC?

    And since I am here...
    Can someone also help me with letting me know how I can transfer my pictures and videos to my PC?

    THANKS! :eek:k:eek:k

    There are several programs that you can load on your pc and then copy photos and videos from your phone. I'm only phone now so I can't tell you the one I have, but a quick google search should be easy. Good luck!

    And, for the text messages... it's a yucky solution, but you can take screen shots, that turns them into pictures, that you can then copy onto your PC.

    If you sync, I believe iTunes will save them if you restore from backup.

    It all depends on how much you have on your phone, my 16gb iPhone 4 took an hour to restore fr
    Backup. And when you back the phone up, then restore from
    Backup it will put everything but iPod songs back on the phone, your text messages will be put back on the phone! I know from experience

    It also depends on the last time you backed up. If it was a long time ago, it'll take a while.

    Can you restore text messages to a new phone with any of these solutions?
