The backup is created locally on the phone by default unless you configure it to upload to Email, Google Drive or Dropbox. You are responsible for backup files and the files are not sent to the developer in any case.
On Android 4.4+ devices, if you have performed the Restore and the messages don't appear in your messaging app then:
- Open your messaging app and Disable SMS from Settings.
- Exit the app
- Open the app again and Enable SMS from Settings.
- Backup SMS Messages in XML format.
- Backup created locally on the device with options to automatically upload to Email, Google Drive or DropBox using the Add-On app.
- Choose a scheduled time to automatically backup.
- Backup format is independent of the Android version so the messages can be easily moved from one phone to another, irrespective of the Android version.
- Option to select which conversations to backup.
- View/Restore all Messages or only selected conversations.
- Delete all SMS Messages on the Phone.
- Email a backup file.
- The XML can then be converted to other formats, and can also be viewed on a computer.
- Tested on Android v1.5 to v5.0
This app is ad-supported and requires the Internet permissions to display the Ads.
If you do not want ads the they can be disabled from preferences or you can buy the paid version from the Market.
On newer phones with inbuilt storage the default backup location will probably be the internal storage card and not the external.
This is because the phone reports the storage that way.
If you intend to do a factory reset on the phone, please make sure you save/email a copy of the backup outside the phone before doing it.

This app listens for incoming SMSs, saves them as fast as it can in an internal database (not the INBOX) and shows a notification.
If you see a "ghostly notification" from this app, but not from the stock SMS/MMS app (check screenshot #2), you can open the app, read your lost message and -if you wish- you can move it to your INBOX to store it or reply to it.
If you don't want to move it to the INBOX or if the stock SMS/MMS app didn't lose the message (check screenshot #1 and... good for you, by the way!), you can safely delete it from the internal database: no message from the INBOX is EVER deleted.

If this app helps you recover a precious message you would have hated to lose, consider a small donation as a token of appreciation ;-)

- SMS permissions are needed to write to the INBOX.
- Read contacts is needed to show the contact name in the list.
- Internet/Network is needed to show Ads. No other network communication is done.
- Billing is required for donations.

The ultimate SMS & call notification forwarder!
Do you find yourself juggling with multiple Android devices?
Have you ever missed an important call notification or text message, because it had been sent to a device you didn’t carry around with you all the time?
Are you tired of constantly checking both your private & work phone for messages and calls?
Then FREEforward is the perfect solution for you!
Simply hook up two Android devices (the app needs to be installed on both of them) of your choice and FREEforward will start sending you notifications of missed calls and actual text messages from one device to the other. (SMS text messages are forwarded via data connection and therefore do *not* use your SMS account.)
PLUS: You’ll even be able to reply to text messages with your distant phone via remote access.*
PLUS: If your forwarding phone runs under Android 4.3+ FREEforward will be able to forward you your first new WhatsApp message (This needs special permissions and is disabled by default).
Your advantages at a glance:
• Hook up two devices: i.e. work phone & private phone or smartphone & tablet
• Forward your SMS text messages, call notifications and your first new WhatsApp message to your 2nd device for free (via data connection)
• Reply to text messages with distant phone via remote control*
* Note: in order to send SMS with a remote device, you’ll need to grant FREEforward permission to send SMS.
It’ll only use this permission upon your explicit action. FREEforward will never send any SMS without your notice.
For sending SMS, standard charges of your contract apply.
