iCloud Restore for iPhone 6s Caused Messages Missing, now what?


My wife’s new iPhone 6s (with ios 9.0.2)has been having issues. We previously just used our computer so the iCloud backup/restore was kinda a mystery to me exactly what it does and does not do. Then I did a iCloud backup on her phone, reset, then restore from iCloud backup. The backup seemed to be restoring but when it appears to be done it went to the white screen with an apple logo. Had to do a power reset and the phone powered up. Seems that some settings were restored and some we not. The call history and message were lost which is the big issue.

iCloud is supposed to be one of the safest cloud storage service, however it frustrates iCloud users time and time again. Large number of iPhone 6s users post to Apple Support Forum complaining about missing messages after an icloud restore for their iPhone 6s. This iCloud restore big issue is estimated to be connected to the original devices being updated to iOS 9.0.1 or later, and the replacements having iOS 9.0. Others have suggested simply that iCloud is pushing out corrupt backups.

Anyway, if you care the missing messages much, you are desperate to find a way to restore your iPhone 6s messages due to the iCloud restore under iOS 9. And there are a couple of different ways to walk you through the trouble.
