SMS Backup + automatically backup/restore SMS, MMS and call log
SMS Backup + automatically backup/restore SMS, MMS and call log entries and sync it with Gmail/Google Calendar. You can easily (just one tap) restore your data from there to your phone. In order to avoid incompatibilities you need to enable IMAP in Gmail and set the correct time/zone, from preferences. You have to accept the permissions that the app asks for in Gmail and start to enjoy the app.
You can schedule daily backups not to lose a single SMS in case your device gets lost or robbed. You can also set notifications when backup is done. This way you will be always aware about your scheduled backups. The layout is quite simple, listed format, black background. The main flaw of this app is that there are lots of backup apps that backup/restore apps, data (including SMS, MMS, call logs and many other features). For this reason, an app that only backup a little part of your data, sins by being simple.
This app might not work properly if you app2SD SMS Backup+, so keep it in your internal storage.
SMS Backup+ has been developed by Jan Berkel, an emerging developer who's reaching great success thanks to this simple but useful app. If you are worried about security and you don't care the scenery, check this out. It will do the job and you won't even realize. Recommendable.
Remember to enable IMAP in Gmail.
Please note that auto backup might not work reliably when SMS Backup+ is installed on the SD card. Future version will hopefully fix this, in the meantime please move it back to phone memory if possible.
For those of you worried about app permissions: there is a detailed explanation in the FAQ section of the website.

* Fix call logs not getting backed up
* Fix battery drain problems
A great app for backing up and restoring when I was on JB4.3. Since upgrading to 4.4.2, I can't restore any SMS. Looking forward to a fix/workaround!
Use apps ops to enable this app to write messages and it will work just fine!
Does what it says. Backs up my call logs and text messages. No complaints
Worked great on Samsung Charge, but since upgrading to Galaxy S4 it skips all incoming texts when backing up. Without backing up incoming texts it defeats the purpose of the app.
My screen is severely cracked, and I am unable to view my call log but by simply checking my email with this app, I can see all the missed calls I've received! This is great!
There was an error message when trying to backup and there is no customer assistance number? Help!
