    I'd like to do a clean 10.3.x installation on a Z30 with minimal or no restoration from my earlier backup of a 10.2.1 system. But I'd really like to retain the SMS threads that I have. Presumably they'd be lost on a clean installation. Is there a single/small component of Restore would bring them back?

    You would need to get an app like "Sms backup" from bbw.

    Link doesn't get that granular.

    I was referring to "Sms backup" actually. Specialises in Sms. The other should be good too.

    Yes, but it the OP only wanted to backup Sms, so "Sms backup" is $2 instead of $5.

    Does SMS Backup Pro actually backs up your text messages so when you restore everything, it goes back to the way it was?

    Yes it does. I've used it and works perfectly. Includes your MMS messages and whatever pictures went with it. They all come back.

    If you restore the messages before restoring any contacts, it won't know what names to go with the numbers. But that's normal until any contacts get re-populated.
