SMS Backup Will Keep Your Android Text Messages on File

When I purchased my first G1 in early 2009 I was already looking for an effective way to backup my text messages. There are a variety of reasons why you might wish to have a saved copy of all your texts. You might for example have some important numbers or other information that you can’t risk losing. You might have legal concerns with you corespondence and wish to keep copies of everything for legal reasons. Whatever the reason might I suggest an app called “SMS Backup.”

backupSMS Backup automatically uploads all of you incoming and outgoing text messages to you gmail, storing them in threads like email conversations. You can opt to have the uploaded messages threads auto-archived which will prevent them from appearing in your inbox. You can also have them auto-labeled with a label such as SMS making them easier to find and reference later.

SMS has worked well for me on all my Android phones. I’ve never even realized it was there as it does its job effectively in the background after the initial settings are configured. Check it out today and let me know what you think.

    SMS Backup sounds a really useful app. there are often messages that we need to safely store for all sorts of reasons, previously I have asked people to send online text messages to make it easier to store but this app looks a really good idea

      Yes. I agree with you. I have the app called VeryAndroid SMS Backup – It is an Andriod sms backup software that can backup and restore sms for android.

      Just share it for all Android users.

    You might want to check out SMS Backup+, which is an improved version of SMS Backup. It’s fully compatible w/ SMS Backup and can also restore your SMS back to the phone. Also it will soon get the ability to backup MMS.
