    Default Some apps not showing on iphone whenever i restore from backup - want to keep old sms

    Hi there whenever i wipe my iphone and restore it from the backup in itunes, so of the apps never show up on the iphone itself despite appearing to sync on.

    This could be something to do with a dodgy jailbreak or something. I would just start from the beginning instead of a restore but i dont want to lose my sms.

    Any ideas?


    Cheers

    YOu could try manually copy your sms.db file from the phone to your PC then restore with itunes, start as new phone, then replace the new sms.db with your backup.

    There is only one sms.db on 2.2.1 located @ var/mobile/Library/SMS/

    I haven't really done much playing with 3.0 betas sms file system
