Arrow Back Up and Restore Text messages, SMS on Android Phone

There are 3 Ways for you back up Text messages in Android phone
To be on the safe side, it is strongly suggested to regularly backup messages from android phone to your personal computer, but there’s little sign that third-party program can be able to identify and scan Android internal storage, especially for the messages file due to it was saved as a specific file type in SIM or internal storage. Here,I share 3 ways to back up text messages from Android phone to computer.

1.Official backup and restore app

No matter what brands of Android phone, there must be an official backup and restore app and software as an attachment for users. We can make use of them to back up our important text messages. Go to this app, we can choose what kinds of data to back up, then choose text messages, tap backup, it will back up your text messages data to SD card or internal memory of the phone. Another software that work on PC also can help you back up phone data to computer, which is more safer. Such as Samsung KIES, Sony Xperia PC Companion, etc.

2.Copy your SMS to SIM Card

You know, SIM card also is a storage card, except for contacts numbers, you also are able to copy SMS to SIM card. The copy option generally is in the Setting menu of “messages” app in Android phone. You go to the message box and long tap the messages that you want to back up, then you can see the Window contains “copy to SIM card” option will occur, just tap this option, your message will copy to SIM card.

However, the space of SIM card is not too much, so you had better store the most important messages to it.

3.3rd-party Android Text messages Backup tool( Android SMS Backup and Restore).

Indeed, apart from the above ways, we can use those backup apps to backup your Android text messages. There are so many text messages backup apps you can find from Google Play. I think there is no necessary to recommend some of them here, most of them are almost similar except slight differences.
This Android Data Transfer did it, it provides proper backup and restore functionality,which helps users export text messages from Android to computer effortlessly. Unlike open source or free tools developed by hobby hackers for advanced users, Android Assistant looks like more professional and ease of use, bearing in mind of beginner users. The entire backup process can be done with a GUI based user interface, instead of command line with free tools. Beside SMS backup, it also supports other items backup and transfer (contacts, photo, media files and apps).

Personally, I use SMS to back up text message, SMS on Android phone and restore; it backs up all my texts and contacts. Stores it either on your flash memory card or internal; creates a folder and stores files that you back up. Once backed up, you can email the file as an attachment... Works fine for me and it is done under 30 seconds...
