UGH I think about SECURITY first! Why do I have to use my Gmail account? My primary account on my phone? LAZY PROGRAMMING it seems. I should be able to use ANY email account, such as one I set up STRICTLY for use with this program, on my own server where I have control. Secondly, why can I just back up ONLY the messages I want? UGH waste of time installing this!

Louis DeLaPena

Save all your texts with this app! Easy to use, I have all my texts backed up to my Gmail account. Perfect app for this purpose.

Tim Jebara

Good program with Some Quirks Good program, but only recently I noticed that MMS are being backed up as Unknown sender/reciever.. So when I restore the SMS and mms, all the MMS end up one thread.

Eric Price

Doesn't play well with Hangouts Did a backup, reset my phone, and restore...All messages show up in the default messaging app but doesn't update in Hangouts. Donated for effort and development. Couldn't get it to sign into GMail without using IMAP. Great effort, keep up the good work. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900T hltetmo Dual Boot Jedi Elite 4.4.3 and CM-11.

Needed a Back-Up and This Works Holy cats, I've been pulling my hair out trying to update some spreadsheets with contact numbers and information, this works great. I can now search out the messages I want, copy and paste the info into my spreadsheet. I am totally happy!

Carl Houghton

No ability to filter messages I don't want to backup all messages every single time. That's several thousand messages. I want to filter by date range. Or maybe filter by recipient/conversation. This is way too basic.

Jim Nichols

Does what it says, but slowly Worked for me exactly as advertised. Backed up and restored my calllog, sms and mms. There are a few issues with this though. First, it's dog slow if you have a lot of items to restore. Being connected to wifi doesn't help one bit. Second, if the connection is interrupted, it doesn't reconnect or indicate that it stopped but it does resume where it left off at. Which leads to the next issue, if you leave the application, you lose the visual status of it running however it runs in the background. Impro

Nikole James

Not exactly It only copied my out going so I don't have complete correspondence hmph :-(

RJ Niehoff

Doesn't back up most recent first?? This should restore the most RECENT messages FIRST. But it appears to restore the oldest messages first. Also, it keeps trying to switch FROM the Backup app when trying to restore!!! Why?? There's no logical reason for it to do this!!!! Dropped to one star.

Dan Andrei

Good idea, bad coder The app takes forever to backup messages. OK. I can leave withf that. But at some point a cryptic 'I error' status label appears. But there is no error handling and no usable way to cancel an operation. Trying to cancel simply disables the cancel button and the spinner keeps spinning. To make matters worse somehow the app doesn't show up in the manager so you can't force stop it. It just hangs there. Forever. Our until you reboot the phone, I guess.

David McConnell

MMS are not backed up properly Works great except for MMS messages. Only the text of the message (if any) is backed up, the media content is not. I would expect that to appear as an attachment, no? Also, would agree that only allowing backup to Gmail is rather limiting.

Will Parsons

What's the point Used the app for 5 days. Never got the call at&t tech support promised me, and at end of 5 days, after I called and requested info, I was told what I originally told tech support, it's equipment issues, nothing else it could be. So disgusted with at&t service.

Ram Mishra

Working after last update Last update fixed everything. Now working as charm like always. 5 stars

James Rutherford

This app has allowed me the chance to save very precious text mssgs. Give it a try, it is very simple to set up and to use!!!!

Debbie Butler

great app wish I knew about this app a year ago as I'd needed proof of text for a court hearing and didn't have a way to keep them .

Tim Thein

Does what I need Backs up and restores call log, SMS, and MMS. That's something Google should provide so that one can switch from one phone to another without losing that data.

Ka Dav

Sends my messages to email when I open the ap and hit back up,but only time stamps the day and time it sent all to email,not when I actually received the message. Plus when I try to change the settings it forcecloses. And causes issues with my phone.

Josh Reynoldson

Simple This app is very simple to use. Most functions are default automated. Just link it to you Gmail account and tell it which sets of data to backup(with check boxes, very intuitive) and press back-up. The initial back may take some time, but once it completes the first back-up, it will back-up in real time. Also has settings for customizing your back-up folder names, and only over wifi so you don't chew up your data. You can find you data on Google under your circles. Great app.

Kostas K

A must for those using multile mobile devices I was looking for long for such an app which can keep lifetime calls and SMS log no matter how many mobiles I have been using.

Ken Drummond

Backup my sms to gmail Works well and works silently whenever I check my gmail the sms's are all up to date.

Brian Fudge

Nice app, needs one feature. This app really does what is advertised. I would give 5 stars if the dev could add a contact selection. I do not want all of my contact conversations backed up. There is only one or two contact conversations I need to have backed up.

O'neil Almeida

Simply superb The best free call log & SMS Backup app on Android.

aurora jarrell

Need help anyone About restore. Does it restore deleted call and texts? Can you tell me step by step how to restore please

Tim Bates

Does what it says... And successfully restores too, which some backup tools don't do.

Sherry Arrington

Android User Was easy enough. Can only transfer 200 at a time. Did exactly what I needed to do with this app.

Richard Jackson

Great app Transferred call log and text messages between my Samsung phones without any problems.

Alexander Budai

This app needs to access to many functions of my phone which I find it unreasonable. Why do this app needs to access my photos or my history and location. Uninstall now.

Pavel Bláha

Works just as expected Easy to setup, works as magic on both wifi and GSM data... just as expected.


No MMS restore. Does not work correctly for sms. And does not work at all for MMS.

Robert Rountree

Great product, easy to use and setup Great for catching and backing up messages that might come in handy later on.

Madhusudan Sohani

Excellent This app is saving grace when you want to change the phone and don't know what to do with SMSes, call logs etc.

Jude Lb

Will backup but crashes if trying to restore What good is this, if it crashes every time I try to restore? Uninstalled!

D.J. Black

Works great, except for MMS pics Using this on my Nexus 5. Does what I need it to do. Paid the $2.49 donation just cause it's simple and works. No ads and garbage. That by itself deserves the fee. UPDATE: Defaulted phone and had to restore all. Pics received via MMS were not placed into text threads, but into Backup album in Photos. Lame.

Steve Johnson

Perfect Does exactly what its supposed to do! Very easy to use. The only thing that would be an improvement would be to backup contacts as well.

Eric Cook

Doesn't work for MMS, the reason I downloaded it

Maria Pepling

Great app Going thru nasty divorce this app is a lifesaver. Saves husbands threatening texts without a worry.

Scott Waber

Some bugs and a serious security concerns Overall the base functionality seems to work, text messages came thru without issue, but in my case the photos from my MMS messages did not come thru except for one thread in which 3 photos randomly made it. The vendor website link seems to have either been hacked or no longer valid and forwards you to spyware. Given the unknown development state of this application and the issues with the published support web site I would recommend avoiding until the author corrects the issues.

terry vick

Features Would be nice if it let you choose which texts to save to email

phill buckett

Confusing Doesn't show "promotion code" in settings so can't unlock full app!

Андрей СИН

Dont work on android 2.3.6 samsung galaxy gt-5830i

Melinda Crosthwait

Works great! I've been using this app for a while now and on a couple different phones. It's easy and does what I need. The only thing I wouldn't mind is ability to choose which conversations to backup instead of everything.

Dennis Topue

Awesome! Very straightforward and effective! Just what you need if you have multiple phones or just need to keep your data safe

Kashi R

Right nw auto backup works only with sms, It would be better if u implement auto backup for call logs too....... please provide authentication process while opening/modifying the application settings


Garbage app! Won't even open after install. No customer service response and app is no longest being updated/managed!

Pamela Silverman

Not bad The only problem with it is it doesn't auto backup all the time I have to check it everyday to see if its done it and if not I have to back it up myself

sts sarat

Awesome App My call logs & SMS backed up and tagged separately onto gmail without my intervention very nice app I love the way it works recommend my friends for sure thankyou

Virginia Bounds

Love this App I have used this app for years!!!! Love that it goes to my email account so if I need to I can get to it anytime anywhere if I need to. A big plus if you lose a person's phone number and you have texted that person at least once you can do a search for the person's name or by the contents of the text message in your email account to retrieve that person's number.

Tim Jebara

Disappointed This app was great when it first came out, but has been eclipsed by other apps. Biggest flaw is that it time stamps the texts in gmail when it uploads them, not when they are sent or received. This makes searching by date almost impossible or pointless.

Kerry Coleman

Its BASIC... but it WORKS!!! The title is dead serious, its a basic app, but it works, I go between CM and Stock, and AOKP and all the other random mix of roms you can find and this tool is a life saver when making the migration! I have reported a few bugs here and there and seen them fixed, and as of this review I only know of 2 bugs... A++ App! EDIT: As of this moment, using this tool for a family friend... when you have almost 9000 TXT messages you want saved, this app takes FOREVER! Still great, but SLOW! Would love to see pa

Matthew Theodore

It doesn't continue to run. It'll run and back up a thousand texts or so and then I'll go back into the app and it'll have stopped. Even if I leave the app open all night while sleeping this occurs...

Tricia Vereen

Wish I knew about this app sooner! I absolutely LOVE this app. I've been needing an app to backup all my text messages forever. So glad I found this. It saves everything for me to go back and reflect on. I love love love love it. Oh, and did I say I love it? Definitely recommend this 100%.

pratik bataviya

Very helpful app It really helped me backup n restore my sms as well as logs.

Tricia Schmidt

Works Great! Backed up over 12,000 messages without a hitch! This app does exactly what it's suppose to do, with several options available. I had tried a few others before this one, each failed. ~Keeping this one!

Izz Noland

Nice to have but... I like being able to back up my conversions to my Gmail account and not worry about when I switch phones, or auto removal of old texts, losing past chats. Two things that make this a 4 instead of a 5: 1. It doesn't maintain timestamps of actual sms / mms that are backed up, timestamps are replaced with date/time of backup; 2. Auto backup doesn't work. I have to manually backup every day or two. Overall though, nice app to have.

Rashida J

BUT....... I like the app. Unfortunately it doesn't always back up messages. I have lost important info because of this

Sylvester Frasier

Text Message Backup Found this to be a very helpful way to track all text and have a place to actually store data.

Prashant Kalkar

Good app. Saves my call and messages to gmail. Gmail offer better and convenient search. Saves to recover some contacts when the phone is broken. It shouldn't ask for in-app purchases. Bad on this part, but nothing has happened to me yet. I use the NoRoot firewall to make sure it only connects when using Wifi


Life saver! I do LOTS of business purely on my cell where I could go thru a day with hundreds of important texts and calls. How to keep a copy of all that? This is THE solution. An absolute essential to anyone with important cellphone activity that you need to keep records of. It does it all. SMS, MMS and calls.

Victoria Cotton

Rubbish This app did not work for me. I ended up with only the messages I had sent restored on my new phone and only a handful of the messages I had received. I also had alot of extra random blank messages appear that weren't on my old phone and that I couldn't delete. It also caused a handful of messages to be resent from my new phone.

Alexander Roelofs

Nice app, and i would imagine there are many things that could cause problems, so it doesnt surprise me that people have so many problems. My issue was every text i recieved was restored as if i had sent it. Also, some contacts are messed up in weird ways. But at least i have the texts!

Emory Penney

Doesn't restore I've used in the past with success but today none of my received SMS were restored after a factory reset. I see the messages in my Gmail but they just don't get restored! Looks like the dev is AWOL. His domain is no longer valid and no updates since 2013. This app does NOT work with the latest Android, should probably be pulled from the store!

Dane Valdivia

Worked on S5. Unlike sms backup + This app worked going from s3 to s5. Other apps tried for hours and failed. I think it is because this app actually switched itself to the default message app to accomplish the goal of restoring old messages.

Judy Lilly

Stopped working Was working fine a week ago. Doesn't at all today. NEW DAY: IT'S WORKING AGAIN! Change rating from 1 to 5 stars!

Boyd Kelly

Does what it is supposed to do I forget that this is installed until I search Gmail on my desktop and find what I was looking for in some obscure SMS message. Very practical utility!

Michael Rabinovsky

Did exactly what I wanted I do realize this application lacks some vital features like choosing which email, more authentication, and other default apps for Android like handouts and what not. A lot of people mentioned this however the app never claimed to do any of this. It does EXACTLY what it claims to do and does it very well.

Todd Buchanan

Backed up but no MMS restored Everything backed up fine including MMS. But when I did a restore to a new phone the MMS images aren't there . Did I do something wrong? I see them in my gmail acct. I had about 150.

Chris Shapland

Does exactly as described I am not technically experienced at all! Easiest app ever. Honestly saved all my conversations text etc with no confusion

T.G. Tran

Great little app With security changes on 4.4.2+, normal backup & restore of messages & calls won't work. This app filled that gap superbly

Gnanadasan Mariaraj

Having issues in Zenfone 5 Dear Application Owner, don't know why the app is not working with Zenfone 5. Kindly Fix this.... Thanks.

Sue Walsh

GARBAGE! Avoid unless you want to screw up your phone Do not touch this piece of garbage with a 10 foot pole. I backed up my messages from my old phone. Worked fine. Then I went to restore them on my BRAND NEW phone. After waiting FOREVER for it to complete, I was rewarded with a Messaging app that kept force closing and a BRAND NEW phone that kept rebooting itself. I deleted the piece of #%#^ and my phone still isn't working right! SO FURIOUS!!! Avoid this app...AVOID!!! DO NOT USE!!

Br. Narayana Chaitanya

Easy Easy to use but guys please make it some eye Pleasing. UI is very outdated. Thats not even material design.

Robert Jetty

Great app. Works like a charm. Backs up call logs and text messages. Good when there's a discrepancy. Proved beneficial when I was judged that I never made a call to a client and lost the contract. However I was re awarded the contract due to the back up.
