    Just sync your phone to iTunes before you upgrade. iTunes will put them all back on the phone as part of the upgrade and restore from backup process.

    It doesnt do that anymore, if you start as a new phone, it will not backup anything but your contacts.

    Copy the entire SMS folder. You should also note down file/folder permissions.

    Sync it, do a backup, then do a restore to 3.13.

    After it restores the FW, reconnect to Itunes and restore the backup you just made.

    Setting up as new phone is much better for a jailbreak
