SMS Backup & Restore Pro

SMS Backup & Restore Pro


A simple App to Backup and Restore SMS Messages. This is a Paid No-Ads version of the Ad-Supported Free App.

NOTE:
The backup is created locally on the phone by default unless you configure it to upload to Email, Google Drive or Dropbox. You are responsible for backup files and the files are not sent to the developer in any case.

On Android 4.4+ devices, if you have performed the Restore and the messages don't appear in Hangouts then:
- Open Hangouts and Disable SMS from Settings.
- Exit the Hangouts app
- Open Hangouts and Enable SMS from Settings.

APP FEATURES:
- Backup SMS Messages in XML format.
- Backup created locally on the device with options to automatically upload to Email, Google Drive or DropBox using the Add-On app.
- Choose a scheduled time to automatically backup.
- Backup format is independent of the Android version so the messages can be easily moved from one phone to another, irrespective of the Android version.
- Option to select which conversations to backup.
- View/Restore all Messages or only selected conversations.
- Delete all SMS Messages on the Phone.
- Email a backup file.
- The XML can then be converted to other formats, and can also be viewed on a computer.
- Tested on Android v1.5 to v4.4.2

On newer phones with inbuilt storage the default backup location will probably be the internal storage card and not the external.
This is because the phone reports the storage that way.
If you intend to do a factory reset on the phone, please make sure you save/email a copy of the backup outside the phone before doing it.

Great app, easy going developer I've been in contact with the developer, he is easy going and friendly, goes in good combination with the app which automatically backs up all my SMS messages. Have never had a problem with restoring after wiping roms

Having issues with the Pro version. Whenever I try to back up my text messages to Google drive,I get an error message. I've don't everything necessary that I can think of, sent two emails to the developer in hopes of getting an answer and a fix of some sort. Other then that, the add on and the Sms pro version are spectacular. No other complaints. :-)
