    Hello everyone!
    I exported my text messages before I restore my phone as it's how I usually backup my contacts. With contacts, I've had zero problem importing them back to my phone. This time, I backed up my messages by exporting them through the app on my phone. it zipped the file. when I unzipped it, I see two files but they are not xml file, nor they have any extension. there is a site that categorized them as Java serialized data version 5. I was wondering if anyone knows how to restore the messages. If I open the smaller file as text, I can see the texts and the phone numbers out of order, along with some weird symbols. Thanks for your help.

    What phones are you using and what app did you create the backup with?
