How can I restore iPhone data from an iTunes backup?

You can restore iTunes backups to your iPhone at any time. Follow these steps to choose a backup and sync the data to your iPhone.

1. Connect the iPhone to the computer with a USB cable.
2. Open iTunes.
3. If you have a new or erased iPhone, iTunes will prompt you to restore from backup.
4. Otherwise, Control-click on your iPhone under DEVICES in the left menu.
5. Select Restore From Backup...
6. Choose the backup you wish to sync and click the Restore button.


Restoring from backup will restore the files in the backup altogether, thus you will lose your current data on your device. So, for this situation, a backup extractor software comes in handy if you want to retrieve just specific files or worst if your backup is corrupt. Here is more about the files in an iTunes backup:

iPhone text messages recovery via iTunes backup
http://recover-iphone-ipad-data.blogspot.com
1. Choose iTunes backup and scan it
When launching the program on your computer, choose "Recover from iTunes Backup File" option on the top, then you'll get the interface below. Choose the iTunes backup of your iPhone, if there are more than one, choose the latest one, and click "Start Scan".
2. Recover deleted iPhone data
When the scan is over, the whole backup content are extracted and also displayed.
3.You can preview them one by one. Then check those you want and click the "Recover" button to save them on your computer.

Use Total Saver.

There are 3 options that you might be able to take advantage of:-

1. Call Att or verizon (whichever you use) and they might be able to help for a fee. Usually it will be a bit on the higher side.

2. If you have a backup of your iPhone, then open iTunes and connect your iPhone. Restore your iPhone to the previous backup. This is a free option but will erase all the current data from your iPhone and would back date it to the old data (its a like a time machine, so you go back in time and loose all the current info.) You also don't get the option to go back just for texts. Essentially, every single piece of info of your iPhone will get back dated including contacts, photos etc.

3. Get a backup recovery software which recovers the iPhone's data for you. I'd recommend Total Saver for the price and ease of use.
Hope this helps you
