I love android because everything I work on my PC is sync with my device, so it helps me a lot to save my times as well as work.Suppose I add any task to do in my today’s work list from my android device, even I forgot, it sync with my computers chrome browser and remind me about it from Google Chrome browser.Besides those, it sync mails, contacts and almost all google data between computer and my device. I have observed that android is never sync any SMS stored on device, so whenever we are formatting android device, we can’t get SMS back.

After searching and trying a lot from Android apps available on Google Play, I found an android app that can easily make sms back up and restore for us.To backup and restore SMS in our device, we need to use SMS backup and restore android app.The app available free  of cost on Google Play and it worth a try.

You can back up and restore your android’s all SMS text messages to your SD cards.The SMS backup file is saved in XML format on your SD card and you can easily restore it from the app dashboard.The main advantage of XML file is that, The XML can then be converted to other formats, and can also be viewed on a computer. The file format is handy so you can easily email to your mail box or also share it with anyone else you wish.

You can schedule the app to back up your text message automatically on your desired time and date.You can set the option to delete old backup when new SMS backup is created.Your SMS backup will be stored in /sdcard/SMSBackupRestore folder by default.The only disadvantage is that, the app can not backup MMS(Picture/Audio/Video) messages.The version is ad supported,If you do not want ads the they can be disabled from preferences or you can buy the paid version from the Market.

There is an extra addons for this app available on Google play which allow you to automatically backup your android SMS to your dropbox account.
