I tried to get into my iPhone 4s but ended up locking it up three times because I had forgotten my passcode. So I thought the easy solution would be to restore my iPhone. Stupid idea. I know hardly anything about Apple and its software. I just factory restored my iPhone and I backed up my data before. How can I download my texts back as if they were before I restored my iPhone?
Your iPhone will be a brand new clean device and all your information was gone when it was finished restoring. If you have a backup, you can restore the whole backup to get your texts back.
