How to Backup SMS in Android

Have you ever wanted to backup all sms from your inbox, but you don't know how to do it?
Today I'm going to write about the trick which is used for making backup in Android phones.

The easy solution for this is SMS Pro, which is available for free in android market. 

Go to the link given below:

It runs on Android 1.6 or higher. The app allows you to backup SMS messages in XML format or a backup file that can be sent via email.

For backup follow these steps:

  • Open app and go to the service tab in settings. 
  • Tap on on the 'SMS B&R' umbrella icon and you will be taken to SMS backup and recovery settings. 
  • Tap on the 'Backup SMS' option which is second in the list and you can select whether to backup all SMS messages or only the new ones. 
  • Confirm the task by tapping on OK and the backup file of your SMS messages will be stored in mnt/sdcard/GOSMS/backup/SMS/. 
  • Once the backup process is complete the app will ask you if you wish to email the backup file (.dat file) to yourself. Choose the necessary options. 
  • The SMS backup file can be saved in .dat or .xml format and you can save it either on your computer, or you can upload it to a safer account. (.xml files are readable with WordPad on a PC.)
