What do I have to do to restore my old messages so I can read them?

You have to have made a backup or synced before deleting any messages.  You also have to have installed the VM+ app.  At that point it will back up messages for 90 days forward after installing, but not any messages from before installing.

HI kutieblueyez,

Also, assuming you've had this phone for a while and recently started using VM+ switching from another app or even the native app,  your older messages, 'should' be on your native messaging app, the one that looks like an envelope.

  

I hope that helps.

Thanks,

ALIE
