About this app

SMS Backup & Restore Pro is an app that backs up (creates a copy of) SMS & MMS messages and call logs currently available on the phone. It can also restore messages and call logs from already existing backups. This is a Paid no-ads version of the ad-supported free app.

Note: This app requires existing backups to be able to restore call logs and messages. It cannot recover anything without existing backups.

I appreciate this app for its ability to back up messages and calls, then upload them to the cloud. However, I suggest an improvement: instead of backing up everything anew each time, the app could simply append new data to the previous week's backup before uploading. This would be more efficient in terms of time and energy. Additionally, I'm encountering an issue with locating my local backups, as the app seems to be in a continuous loading state, making it challenging to delete these backups.

Thought this would be a seamless way to transfer text messages from one Android phone to another. Turns out it took multiple tries to restore on the new phone after the first attempt didn't work. It eventually restored most (not all) of the messages but with large missing gaps in many threads. It did NOT transfer any of the last 1+ years of associated photos even though that box was checked. Very, very disappointed. Emailed tech support but got no response. Would not at all recommend this app.
