Reviews From google play store

I have used this app for several years and have been really happy with it. The only glitch I've found is with mms messages. I didn't think it was backing up my sent pictures at all. It is, but they're under my name instead of in the same thread as the recipient. Is there a way to fix this? The app worked perfectly until I switched to the pixel a year and a half ago

Has always been great and easy to use, but is currently not backing up anything. Even after uninstalling and reinstalling, it says "no items to recover" since January even though it cycles through countless messages. I've used this app through three androids, and am sad I'll have to switch. It used to work brilliantly and simply.

I have had many phones. A few were alcatel, some were htc(before they stopped retail in the US) and I have my first Samsung now. Each had this backup. Very easy to use. I do not care about backing up pics or apps like other SMS backups can do. At one point I did see a backup that one can choose what SMS to back up. All I had to do was check it. I think that would be useful with this one because I get messages from doctors, etc. reminding me of appointments and other things that I do not want backed up. Good app, but we should be able to choose what SMS to backup.

As I am using this App for more than 8 years, I always like to the keep the call logs backed up and synced with my google calendar as events. I think this apps can be improved with few more features like restoring periods and also syncing the messages to Google calendar as events, but still I love this App. Hope my suggestion will be considered and will work on it. Because few other Apps developers providing such feature.

Edit: it seems I've hit a limit for the number of logs able to be restored. I've got over 20,000 sms messages saved from over the years. I got a new phone, and this program keeps canceling the process of restoration, so that I'm not getting past 5,000 or so restored. Everytime I restart the process, ot starts over from the beginnin, so I'm making very little to no progress. to restore messages and now call logs, too! I've used it to change my data to new phones twice. Installed and performed without a hitch. I have my phone history for the past 4-5 years.

a great, super useful app, have been using it for years. does what it's supposed to do, and i appreciate its reliability. despite its age, have never thought about looking for another app to provide the same convenient gmail text backup and integration, hasn't been necessary. was a nice surprise to see there was a new update, but even without one i'd stick with and recommend sms backup+.

BEST app for transferring messages between brands (Samsung to LG for example). You have to make this your default messenger app ONLY while it's restoring your messages. YOU CAN CHANGE IT BACK TO YOUR PREFERRED MESSENGER AND UNINSTALL ONCE MESSAGES ARE RESTORED! I make that point because I thought I'd be stuck using this app as my permanent messenger app, but that is not the case. Thanks for making a great app!

Y'all! You came through for me! My phone got damaged and I thought I lost all my messages, some of which contained important information I need. I got a new phone, installed this app, and clicked "restore". It took a bit because I had so many messages but when it was done, I am back to the minute! Also I've had this app for a couple years and it has continued to get better with each update. It's been so error free I thought it wasnt working anymore. Instead, obviously, it's been in the background working tirelessly. Thank you! Thank you! I'll send a donation as soon as I can. You deserve it.

I have been using this for years with perfect results. I used this to backup from a LGV20 to a LGV30 a few months ago and it worked flawlessly. Now I have had problems with my V30 so I synced to another V30. Now when i used the SMS backup+ it is missing the last 2 years of texts. When I look on GMAIL,, all of the texts are there. I have tried to restore contacts 4 times and it says that the restore HAS backed up the 147K texts...but it is still i missing the last two years...and those are the most important ones.. What should I do?

It would have 5 stars if it would just automatically back up like it did before the update. It's so frustrating because it doesn't do it like it used to. Other than that I love the app...wish the picture messages would go with the phone number like the MMS an sms messages instead of them all being from me but other than that LOVE it!

Used for years and was brilliant, worked silently and perfectly in the background, but something has changed (Android 9 (pie)? ) as others have commented automatic backup seems to have stopped lately... tried reset of sync, clearing cache and data, uninstalled and reinstalled, deleting all SMS' from Google and re-backed them all up and finally deleted all SMS' from phone and restored in-app from Google, nothing fixes it...

I used to really like this app, but it seems that after upgrading to my Galaxy S9 I have to reconnect, and it's asking for waaaaay more access than I am comfortable giving. It says i have to give it access to "read, compose, send, and permanently delete all email from Gmail." That is completely unacceptable. I believe I will look for another app at this point.

I used to love this app because it's backed up call logs, now it won't even back up at all I have to manually go in and make it back up. What is the point in the app if it doesn't automatically back your stuff up and you have to do it manually? I asked over a year ago that you guys fix this and you still have not fixed it that's why I stopped paying into it because you guys won't fix the issues.

On my last phone (LG something) this app worked great. On my new one (LG K20+) the auto backup doesn't work very well. I have it set to backup incoming texts every 3 minutes but sometimes it goes days without doing it, sometimes hours, and sometimes it works okay for part of a day. I've tried every setting and can't figure out what would cause this.

loved this app for years. no update since 8/2018. note 9 just updated to one ui and now texts wont back up. says last backup completed april 23rd 2019. its april 11th. deleted cache,uninstalled, reinstalled and ran full backup. it backed up everything and then said same april date and wont backup new texts.

12/31/18 update - still loving this app, but I just noticed that it had not backed up for a few months! It said it was getting xoauth error from gmail, and to be sure imap was enabled (no change in account settings). I tried a reset of the app, but ended up having to disconnect and reconnect the app from my account, and then it starts fresh with a new backup. This happened at least once before over the years, possibly different error, so I just wanted to mention it. This is the second SMS backup I tried, the first one worked fine, but I realized it did not get the MMS messages. I also noticed it did not preserve the order of the messages. This one does all that, it is so nice to see the pictures that were a little hard to discern on the phone screen! I love this!

Great in concept, poor in execution. Sometimes auto backup works, but it'll stop working without telling you. When I get a new phone and try to restore messages, it restores a handful and ignores a whole bunch. It takes forever and then fails to do its job. Wanted to love this app; appreciate it for what it did, but it's needed fixing for a long time and that fix has never come.

I've been using this app for years and never had a problem in fact I loved it, until recently. It doesn't back up all texts and doesn't back up any calls. My husband is having the same problem and he has a different phone than I do. we've done all we can including but not limited to uninstalling and reinstalling. We're thinking it's time to see if there's a better app out there.

Now running this app on an Android 9 device. Recently, the auto back up has not been triggering on its own as frequently. I've got to manually tap the Backup button. Not cool. Is this going to be fixed? Shame if not. When it's working, it's still working flawlessly. Just not automatically. Below is my original review from 2013 Quietly, seamlessly, it backs up my text messages to my gmail. Never an issue. I'll forget I even have it...until I search my gmail and see SMS messages among the hits. Perfect.

Great and useful application. However, as a regular user (due to changing phones ever so frequently) I've found a possible upgrade that you might think of. How about backing and restoring just the messages and call logs of person you'd like to? It might been useful - for example I had to restore over 20k messages (mostly useless), because I deleted messages from my dearest person... :/ But an application is more than useful and saved me great amount of time!
