Still works... But not like it used to I used to have my text messages backed up to my Gmail instantly with this app. But lately, since the new update.... . It doesn't back up anything until I go into the app and reinstate the settings to my email address. Then I can manually back up my messages and pictures. . . Wish that wasn't the only way to do it.
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
Could be much better Been a user since 2011. It does backup and restore. But definitely needs work. Communication Error during backup often create duplicates messages when I had to start over (Annoying) Caused me to have nearly 70,000 messages saved. Had to manually delete the duplicates from Gmail to restore with no error (Time Consuming). Would prefer if messages saved together instead of separate batches. Tech support not helpful (sent an email with no response) Would be great if MMS could be restored.
version 0.5.1: fix mms backup issue.
