Before you start to try anything newly in your device it is always advisable to take backup. If you stored any important SMS, or your favorite SMS sent by your dear ones and you don’t want to lose them then take a full backup of all your SMS with the help of Backup and Restore SMS Messages.

Please make a note that this app does not support MMS (Picture/Audio/Video) Messages. And also note that this is ad-supported and requires the internet permissions to display the ads.

Backup and Restore SMS

If you don’t want ads then they can be disabled from preferences or you can buy the paid version from the market. 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. Start the app atleast once after updates so that the scheduled backups start working.
