    it is. if you backup in itunes and after the restore you can restore your backup and the text messages will stay

    how do I "back up" in itunes. sync?

    how is the process changed when I use pawnage and may have to hack-tivate?

    I've never used pawnage before.

    tell me if this is correct

    so i copy the file, save it on my computer.
    then I upgrade in itunes to the newest firmware ... or do I use pwnage to upgrade?

    iphone 2G 1.1.4 JB and UL currently.

    ok, I found the backup spot.

    Are there any issues using the Itunes backup feature after using pwnage for 2G????
