Previously we mentioned about the SMSBackup that can synchronize and backup SMS text messages from Android smartphone to Gmail account but in case you are looking for a full SMS backup & restore solution, here is a tiny app that can be your great alternative.
Basically the free app is very simple but it does what it supposed to be. Once installed and launched on your Android smartphone, the app is ready to be used. Without complicated learning curve, just tap on ‘Backup SMS Messages’ will backup all your existing text messages in .xml format with prompted new suggested file name. The suggested file name could be very lengthy with all the year, month, date, time and even seconds in sequence but users can choose any new file name at own preference. And the backup file will be stored in /sdcard/SMSBackupRestore directory which can be viewed on the smartphone, copied to PC for offline archive and more importantly, it can be restored just in case your smartphone was stolen or the data was corrupted.
And in order to make it compatible across different mobile device, the backup data is version-independent so that users can restore it back even on newer (or older) Android Operating Systems. More importantly, users can schedule a desired time so that the backup activities can be performed without manual intervention. Being developed by Ritesh Sahu, the tiny useful app is free for download and use (but of course donation is always welcomed) which is especially suitable for those that would like to change their smartphones, upgrading to latest firmware without losing important communication data.
