Here’s a list of 5 SMS backup apps for Android. Saving important info into SMS messages is something that most of us are doing. It’s convenient, fast and accessible, especially if we receive info via SMS, but it does have its disadvantages. Messages can be deleted by accident, they are all lost if we decide to switch phones, etc. Backups are a life saver in these types of situations. Here are Android apps that can help you do that, backup SMS.
SMS Backup+ will create SMS backups and store them into your Google account. That’s why the app requires the user to connect with their Google account. Once you’ve signed in with Google, you’ll be able to tap on the backup button and the app will create a backup of your text messages.
It’s possible to setup automatic backups every couple of hours or in case new messages are received. It’s not just SMS that gets backed up, MMS and call logs are also saved. To restore created backups (on a different device) just login with your Google account and click on the restore button.

SMS Backup & Restore
SMS Backup & Restore lets you create both local and online SMS backups. To save them online, you’ll need to sign in with either Google Drive, Dropbox or email.
Default format that’s used for backups is XML and it can even be restored using other SMS backup apps but only if you decide not to include MMS messages and emojis. By including these two in the backup, different formatting is used which is unreadable by other apps. Selective backups of only messages that you choose is possible.
