[iPhone] Preserving old text messages on upgrade
A friend is waiting for her iPhone 5 to show up and asked me about upgrading. She's concerned that the older text messages (before iCloud's inception) that she has been preserving will be lost when she upgrades devices.
I believe messages that are stored in the cloud will appear, but want to know if her older messages will be preserved.

If they are still on the phone and she syncs the phone with her computer, then syncs the new one with the same itunes account and computer, they should move over.
You mentioned "syncs with her computer".
Would it be different if she does an iCloud backup / restore to new device (without using computer)
Text messages are backed up to iCloud.

Text messages are moved over. Old voicemails, however, are not necessarily. I had a few Ive saved over time, and they are gone.
You're so vain... I bet you think this post is about you.
