Very good app for SMS restore and backup
I love this program and have used it for years. The only issue I have is when it updates, if you don't catch that it has, It will stop backing up your messages till you open the app and allow it access to your gmail again. The last time this happened to me I was looking for an address I forgot to write down and realized that my messages hadn't been stored for over 6 months. Other than that the app performs exactly as states.
Great alternative for backup of messages and more Does a great job of backing up SMS & call logs to your email and has the ability to restore. Very handy for those that love Google Messenger because it has no backup options of its own outside of your phone service. SMS Backup+ works. The only downfall and why I give it 4 stars is because it can't backup MMS yet. It's in the works so if it isn't a major concern for you, I recommend this app.
This is b.s. that it won't auto back up. I have used this app for over 3 yrs. The best I have ever seen for backups. Through out my many phones I had no issue. I got the LG V20 and just like everyone else who has this phone, no auto backup. Me thinking it been working these past few months without worry is a lie. Lost countless messages and pictures. Currently looking for another app that will do auto backup. This app is not worth the memories lost.
Don't "skip"!!! 1. install 2. open 3. connect google account 4.hit backup 5. DON'T SELECT SKIP!!!! SELECT BACKUP OR YOU NEED TO REINSTALL FOR FIRST TIME BACKUP!! That said...it brilliantly saves your sms/mms to a separate SMS folder in your google mail, and each message with attachement is saved as an e-mail style thread. So nicely done!....But i recommend starting it from a WIFI network since it can take a LOOOONG time for first synch!
