    SMS Backup & Restore allows you to keep safe your SMS

    • Good-looking layout
    • Automatic scheduled backups
    • Personalized backupping
    • Backups in XML format
    • It doesn't backup MMS (just SMS)
    • We're missing cloud sync

    "SMS in a lifeboat"

    This is another great tool to keep safe one of your most valued data: your SMS. It allows you to backup/restore you SMS which are create in XML format and save by default on the SDcard. However, the XML files can be converted and be viewed on a computer. What's more, you can send the backup file to your e-mail or send it to other cloud service accounts.

    What we've seen until now is that it allows to backup just selected conversation (that's it, personalized backup). You can even view backup file contents on the phone and schedule backups not to miss a single SMS in case of losing or robbery.

    SMS Backup & Restore has been developed by INFOLIFE LLC, a developer focused on security and system Android apps.

    If you just want to backup/restore SMS, this is a good choice due to it good-looking layout, automatic scheduled backups, personalized backupping and sharing options. Recommendable.
