Conversation Backup

Conversation Backup


This tool can backup your SMS messages, MMS messages, and call logs, for specified or all numbers, into a zip file, which can be sent to you for archiving. The tool can also delete those backed-up messages and/or call logs from your device if requested. Once backup is done, you can `share` the zip archive, allowing
you store it using any apps on your device which can share (e.g. email, gmail,
Google Drive, DropBox, Box, etc).

It fills a niche which other apps in this space do not cover, which is presenting a human-readable archive and accompanying browser based viewer tools for SMS, MMS and call logs (including MMS attachments).

This supports Android 2.1 and above.

This zip file created by the tool contains:
- viewer files (index.html, stylesheet and .js script)
- json files containing execution summary, call logs and messages
- MMS attachments referenced from messages (mms._ID_._filename_)

The source is freely available at http://github.com/ugorji/android-conversation-backup.

Recent changes:
- Fixed issue with inability to open up some zip files, caused by an underlying Java bug (http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=4244499) and historically poor unicode support in zip.

- Allow sending archive via different sharing modes (bluetooth, email, online storage e.g. google drive, etc)

Thanks! Thanks for making this very handy app - it's exactly what I was after! It allows you to quickly back up all of your texts and/or call logs (or you can do this for specific numbers, if you want) and share them in a number of ways. I emailed them to myself and they can now be viewed as an html file in my browser. The app also seems to have an inbuilt tool to erase items after the backup but I haven't tried this yet.

Not so useful It backs up only for ten days conversation, not before that. How can I get all the conversations

Couldn't find my file and seemed like it only copied 100 messages. Need something I can actually use

FINALLY! An app that reliably backs up MMS AND attachments, has a bundled viewer and enables you to save the file via email, cloud, etc. Good support, works every time. I've tried many apps, free & paid.. all had issues or limited function. This one works. Samsung Galaxy4
