This question already has an answer here:

On Windows phone you can back up your text messages by going to Settings > Applications > Messaging > Text message backup (flick on)

My question is:

How can I view these text messages online? Is there a place on SkyDrive (OneDrive) where I can view these messages?

Also I if get a new phone (or factory reset my phone) where to I restore from backup?
