It's a common quest and I wonder if anyone has figured out how to restore more than SMS. MMS appears to be problematic and some phones don't allow you to put SMS messages back.
The reason is pretty simple. You could fake messages and create trouble. So maybe it's best this doesn't work forever.
I have a Huawei Mate 9. I had to do a factory reset. Prior to resetting, I used HiSuite to upload all my files, data, and 11,000 + text messages. After upload and reset using HiSuite to RESTORE back to the phone, everything came back except my very important text messages used for reference and such.
I can see all my messages in MS XLS but in no way able to figure out hot to get them restored to my phone from my laptop which is the ONLY place they are stored. I really hope it is possible to retrieve them back to my phone either via the HiSuite which I doubt will work or, another method.
Thanks in advance for any expert help.
