Questions and Answers

I can't restore my old SMS after factory reset. Previous factory resets have restored back my SMS?

I made a factory reset on my phone on 3rd of April and although I got my other data restored, my SMS didn't auto restore. I tried to repeat the process today and still my old messages are not restoring. Please advise what I need to do. Regards. This case is different. Although the apps and other activity done after the 1st reset on 3rd April appear to come. There is fear that it's only restoring recent activity which already had a defect of not restoring my SMS and some apps. I have tried: I have done a second reset. Did a manual Samsung account restore under accounts on the device. I think it was caused by: Data over shadow of recent update /activity to previous data. Using up of cloud space in Google drive or Samsung Dropbox. Although these old messages I expect that they should be backed up already. Defect at cloud account. The SMS file not being able to auto restore on the devices. How can I get all the SMS for this device ever since this Samsung account was created.
