Wasn't able to backup all my messages Tried to transfer sms messages from old phone (android 2.3) to nee one (5.1), but a lot of them has not shown up after the restore.
Transferring all my text threads from my 3 year old Huawei phone (android 4.0.3) to my new Oneplus 2 phone (Oxygen OS based on android 5.1). I am using just native text apps on both. Even though I backed up all messages and restored all messages, only messages from August 2015 and onward are showing up in the message threads. Anything older than this do not show up. I definitely told the app to restore ALL the messages and it said it successfully restored them all. The app did restore all the messages from August 2015 onward though. Although a few of the conversations, it split them into more than one thread for some reason. I will rate higher when this is fixed.
SMS BACKUP & RESTORE IF you need to back up call logs/text messages, in an orderly fashion, easy to retrieve, read & transfer, etc, this is your lucky day!!! In the way reviews are the best, this app does 100% of what it promises, 100% of the time, with 100% of its audience, which I usually find 100% of the time most do not. Tech help, Email Carbonite, Attn Alex, tell him you read BMW Gregory's review and he will help you as if you made a costly purchase when it was absolutely free. Sincerely, this program is just terrific.
Didn't work Backed up to internal storage (default), verified backup, reset phone, go to restore backup and nothing is in the default folder.
It is a very thorough SMS/MMS backup and restore app for no cost. I like that it includes emojis 😉, auto scheduling, saves to device and sends to cloud, and xml format. The only problem is that if you do not use your phones stock Android messaging as your default, it backs up nothing 😦. I have Samsung S6 Edge/T-Mobile, and I got Signal for better security and other options, but primarily because S6's Messages no longer provides standard MMS functionality. But really liked this app.
Doesn't really upload When sending files to gmail it fails. Edit: that fixed it, even though I didn't have battery saver on. Big thank you to developer!
- Allow Pro App users to transfer backup files to this app
- Fixed a bug related to retrieving backups/attachments for restore
We’ve fixed a few bugs related to time zone adjustment, back up to SD card, battery optimization, & uploading backups to cloud and email. Also, for anyone who has the paid version of the app, you can now transfer your settings to this app with a single tap!
