Failed to restore sms I did a backup of my texts so that I can do a factory reset. As it turns out when I went to restore the texts, all I get is an error message, saying that it can't open the backup file.
The only backup & restore that works for kitkat 4.4.2 I've tried so many apps for the past days, and this is the only one that works for phones running on OS kitkat 4.4 and above.. GREAT JOB!!! MUST HAVE
Incredibly perfect! Downloads my SMS history and automatically puts them in alphabetical and chronological order. That means I can see ALL of the texts from my crazy ex-wife in order of conversation (date and time), opposed to searching for texts from her mixed in with all the other texts from other people I communicate with in between texting her. With this app I get a clean, ordered list by default! Wooo!! Running a Note 3 with Kitkat 4.4.2
Kyle Lawson, Why on earth would you factory reset your phone without first checking to see if your sms's were backed up correctly and you could open the backup first before resetting your phone? I would never reset my phone until I have opened everything I backed up first and check to see if it worked or not. I would have to say that it was not an issue of this sms backup app as it is your responsibility to make sure that all your items & apps you wanted saved are backed up and stored in the proper cloud, emailed to yourself & that you can "open the file" w/o seeing that "error message that you cannot open this file or file doesn't exist" error message after you back it up or delete anything off your phone UNTIL YOU HAVE LOOKED TO MAKE SURE IT IS DONE PROPERLY before any type of reset is ever done. I hope this info helps save you future frustrations and serves as a reminder to check your backup's before YOU RESET YOUR PHONE. I've been there and know all too well your frustrations & anger you went through knowing your important messages were not properly backed up & your rage when you cannot open that file or see message that "this file doesn't exist". Good luck
Garbage My experience with it on a lg Google nexus 4 it only backs up your side of the text messages, making it useless.
This is the only one You can backup and restore your phone without worrying if it's still there. The other one can't
Finally fixed for 4.4.2
* Now saves on external memory for terminal with both internal memory and removable sdcard. Default path is in the internal memory so take care to copy the backup in safe place before any reset.
* Choose your theme now!
* Backup speed incresed, this has never been this faster!
* Improved graphics
* ALWAYS READ THE HELP BEFORE USE THIS TO AVOID PROBLEMS OF ANY KIND
