    Default Syncing iMessages between iPhone and Macbook

    So I had to get a new iPhone 5 today and I realized that my last backup was from 2 weeks ago (Dang it!). I restored my phone and everything was restored from that backup date, and I guess because of iCloud (maybe?) my calendar and contacts are all completely up to date to last night as if I never got a new phone. However, my texts/imessages are not all there AKA the ones from after the date of the restore up until yesterday (which I obviously expected). However, all of the iMessages that I had sent in that time are all still in the Messages app on my computer. Is there any way to sync the Messages from my mac with the iMessages on my phone so that they are all back on my phone again? Not sure if that is possible, but I figured someone here would know! Thanks!!!!!

    Unfortunately if they were not in the backup you used to restore the phone, you won't get them
    back on the phone unless you forward them from the Mac. Afaik anyway.

    If you have backed up your iPhone with iTunes on Mac, you messaegs have been stored there. Restore from the old backup may get back your messages on iPhone.

    As Karen said unless you forward them to yourself there isn't another way. Even if you delete messages from your phone you will notice they are still on the Mac.
