Although android platform is seen by many as the best platform at the moment but it is not perfect as there are few features that are still missing and one of those features is "SMS backup" and restore.

A lot of us has wished to find a way to create a backup for important messages in our inbox but it seems too demanding or unavailable. Before now, one can create a backup and restore point with PC but it's somehow stressful but with the app i will introduce to you, you can easily create a backup and restore point with one click.

The name of the app is “SMS backup & Restore”

=> Backup SMS (text) Messages in XML format.
=> NEW: Backup Call Logs in XML format.
=> Local device backup with options to automatically upload to Email, Google Drive or DropBox using the add-on app.
=> Choose a recurring scheduled time to automatically backup.
=> Option to backup MMS (media in the messages)
=> Option to select which text conversations to backup or restore.
=> View and drill into your backups

=> Please start the app at least once after updates so that the scheduled backups start working.
=> Backup is created locally on the phone by default, but you have the option to upload to Email, Google Drive or Dropbox. You are responsible for backup files. At no time are the files sent to the developer.
=> 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.
=> 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.
