    Question Backups and SMS?

    So....Seeing as all of your installed Apps are backed up to Google servers magically....and pulled back down when/if you get a new phone...what exactly happens to all of your SMS/MMS messages? Do they get backed up to Google as well?

    If so.......does this mean that I can more than likely access my SMS messages as an HTML document somewhere on Google's site? (this would be amazingly badass)...

    No... there is an app for backing up SMS messages and the like. As far as I know only the apps are preserved and only those you purchased.

    Someone else can chime in if I am wrong.

    Only if you're using the GV assigned number to send/receive them I believe.

    Exactly....so how would one proceed to backup SMS that come to your real phone number?

    As I said earlier... there are several apps in the App Market that do this. Just search for SMS Backup
