I got a new iPhone and realized when I plugged it in to sync it that my previous iPhone didn’t fully sync to my computer. I unplugged it, assuming it would pick up where it left off, synced my old phone and then plugged it back in to restore from my old phone’s sync. It doesn’t give me the option and just syncs with iTunes. Is there a way to get my previous phone texts to sync to my new phone?
