I have an iPhone 5 that is currently running iOS 6. I do not want to update the phone to iOS 8, but would like to back up the phone's texts, reset the phone, and restore the texts onto the phone.
I don't want to restore the phone from a full backup since I only want to restore texts and contacts, nothing else on the phone. Is it possible to use iTunes to do this without updating the operating system and if so is there anything I should watch out for? Otherwise, is there some other third party application that I could use instead?
