This article will teach you how to take backup and restore all sms present in your android mobile phone . It is done through Smsbackup app , a free software which is available in android market . Before going to tutorial , just go through Devlup’s recent android posts which may be useful to you .
SMSBackup is a android app which automatically takes backup and restore all SMS,MMS and call log entries using a separate label in Gmail/ Google calendar . It is possible to restore SMS and call log entries back to the phone but MMS is not supported yet.
Steps to do backup and restore of all SMS/MMS :
Step 1: Download Smsbackup app from following location :
or download through following QR code :
Step 2: There are two options available in this app : Either you can take backup of all sms/mms/contacts available in your phone to your gmail account or you can restore the data from your gmail account to your phone. With current version , you can restore everything except MMS .It also has options to take backup automatically .
Step 3: In order to take backup ,you have to sync with Google account. When you click backup button , it will ask for permission to access your Gmail account .XOAuth: SMS Backup+ will never ask you for your Gmail password. Instead it uses XOAuth to get access to your data. You can revoke the access rights at any time.
Step 4 : Once you grant the access , you can take the backup of all sms and contacts present in your phone . It will take some time to take backup , so be patient and backup your data . It took nearly 1 hr for me .
Step 5: After completion of backup process , check your Gmail account . Here checkout for newly created SMS label where your backup is stored .
