I thought you could go back to see entire history of texting from/between each person, any person. A couple of times I have seen back farther but usually not (am only looking to research one person at the moment). How do I get to the origin of that contact/trail and see them all with that particular person?

  • You can scroll back in the chat history within Messages. If this doesn't work for you or if you are using a different application, please add more details to your question.

Do you use iMessage? This is the best way to preserve text history, available even after restoring your device to factory settings.

  • You can also now use iCloud to save messages.
