hi,I'm not sure you did backup all your messages on iCloud yet,the only way to find out or even know if it does is to restore your iPhone first then follow the initial setup at the end of that setup it will give you option to restore from icloud.After you restore and find out that all your messages that you need are there.You can use software like touchcopy and pull messages from your iPhone to the computerhttp://www.wideanglesoftware.com/touchcopy/features/features_messages.phpNow to restore your iPhone, just plug in, open iTunes, select iPhone name under Devices then on the summary tab click restoreYou can check backup by going to settings --->>> icloud --->>>backup and storageSee how many backups you didIf you got more than one backup and the date was on april or may, after restoring your iPhone, the final steps of the initial setup, that give you option to restore from icloud, pick backup date that is within the time frame you wantedThen restore itAnyhow, let me know if it works out for you. Thank you
