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 your messaging app then:
- Open your messaging app and Disable SMS from Settings.
- Exit the app
- Open the app again 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.

Please start the app at least once after updates so that the scheduled backups start working.

* Your messages: Backup and Restore messages. Receive SMS permission needed to properly handle messages received while the app is the default messaging app on Android 4.4+ devices.
* Storage: To create the Backup file on the SD card.

Trusted your "It takes backup of All" promises and got seriously disappointed; Took backup and had to factory reset phone (HTC Legend)- Upon restore I lost 10 months of messages..!

Superb Easy to set up and works effortlessly in the background. Once it's been set up to sync with Google drive there is no more worrying about it.

The best can still be better :) The only reason I got the "paid" version was to support the development of this already awesome app. How can an awesome app be better in my opinion? * Delete All Messages option - Set a random password to make sure the user really wants to delete all (similar to Reset to Factory default in Android) * Delete All Messages - should have a progress bar. Every time I do this, it has taken hours and I'm not sure if the app just crashed or if there's any progress Other than those two recommendations, two thumbs up for the developer! Please continue to enhance your already awesome app! Millions rely on people like you!
