â€œI have a iPhone 5c, the screen and touch was damaged due to a drop. I had the screen replaced several weeks later and the touch both work with out issues now but I had approx 250+ SMS and some missed calls, now after restarting the phone without opening the message app or phone app they are all gone. running IOS 9.1, iâ€™ve tried restarting the phone again, and removing the sim and replacing, nothing seems to work. Any ideas?â€
The iPhone 5s user went to the repair store expecting to have the damaged screen and touch, only to end up with a message loss though the iPhone can work perfectly now. Removing the sim card and replacing does not work because the sim card does not save SMS messages and call history. This, however, does not mean you cannot get back the missing messages.
