Does what I want autonomously. 5 Stars. Such a good app. Don't even have to think about it and all my messages, phone call logs, etc are backed up in my gmail. They are searchable in 100 message groupings, per recipient. Just so convenient.
Not restoring Can someone help me with restoring the data. I hit the restore button and it does not work.
I got a new phone phone and when I try to restore my SMS (There are over 80,000 of them), it stops halfway through (10 hours) and then I have to start over. It keeps saying "general communication error". Trying to restore my text messages and contacts to a new phone is what we pay for. If this app can't do that, then it's useless. UNFORTUNATELY, BACKUP TO GMAIL HAS STOPPED....get used to seeing that message.
Works great, generally reliable! Wish it would warn you when backup fails for some reason or another - like password change, communication error, etc re: COMMUNICATION ERROR another user experienced... I recently purchased a tablet & was often carrying either/or, not both phone & tablet. I tried installing an app that syncs messages to your tablet - did not notice that I was 2-3 weeks w/out SMS backup until I went looking for a particular message. Phone logs had been backing up just file. Deleted the 2nd app, the communication error went away & backups resumed. 2nd wishlist item, an "exception list" of messages (numbers) NOT to backup
This worked for my Droid Maxx with no problems at all. However, I got a new phone yesterday, the Droid Turbo and it keeps crashing on restoring my SMS and Call Logs. Is there an update for this in the near future? The message I get is "Unfortunately, Backup to Gmail has stopped." I'd like to be able to restore all of my SMS's, Call Log, etc. It;s on Android Lollipop. Please HELP!
Used to be great, but since 28th April 2015, emails no longer contain content-type: text/plain & charset=utf-8 parameters in the headers . The result is that emails display perfectly in gmail, but are incorrectly formatted in other clients such as thunderbird.
