I have SMS backup turned on, and it should sync to the outlook.com account I've used to set up the phone (it's a gmail login though) Does it store it somewhere I can see old sms messages, or is it just not working? (I can't see my sms anywhere)

  • I'm still waiting for my 8.0 device to arrive, but have you checked SkyDrive (as that's where Windows Mobile 6.5 used to back up to)

Based on tweets with Microsoft Windows Phone Support, it is currently impossible to see the backups, or to know that they are there.
