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 only on the SD Card 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

Please note that MMS (Picture/Audio/Video messages) support is currently in BETA.

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.

    Works perfectly. Saves all or individual sms in a secure place. Easy to restore or view later. Creator is very helpful and prompt when contacted with a question. So worth $

    Used the free app several times when changing phones for me or relatives. I was perfectly happy with the free app. Bought it just to support the developer.

    This app has saved me countless times. Bought this version to support. It works flawlessly! The dev is excellent as well. He went out of his way to answer some questions I had. I would rate 10 stars if I could!!

    Support alone is more than enough of a reason to buy this product. Then you have the features that the built-in export/import of the messaging app doesn't have.
