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

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.

- 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.

This App needs access to the following:
* 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.
* Phone calls - Without this the Restore fails on some phones.
* Your social information: To display and store the contact names in the Backup file.
* Run at start-up: Start scheduled Backups.
* Control Vibration: To vibrate the phone when an operation is completed.
* Prevent Phone from Sleeping: To prevent the phone from going to sleep/suspended state while a Backup or Restore operation is in progress.

    I backed up over 9200 mms and sms from a Galaxy S2 and restored them on a Galaxy S4. So I brought the pro version

    Ive tried several SMS backup apps and this is by far the best one for me. It is fast, stable and reliable with decent amount of options which are well organised. Also, cloud backup is a welcome plus.

    One of first apps I install on new ROMS. HaS transferred my entire messages from ROM to ROM at least 12 times since I bought the Pro version. Can't use android without it, is a must have for me.

    Fits my criteria for the most part: local backup, backups that can be scheduled and a format that can be opened (XML). Would have preferred CSV or TXT, but I can convert. Restore works.

    Backing up to external SD card, Google Drive, and Dropbox. The options are very well explained and it's easy to use. The best backup app available. I'd been using the free version with such success for so long that I've decided it's time to pay for it. Keep up the good work! =)
