    Hey guys,

    another good app has been discovered on the market.
    Today i Found "SMS Backup & Restore", wich does what it is
    named like. It backups SMS to SD Card (NO ROOT NEEDED)
    and can restore from there as well!

    Just search the market for "SMS Backup"

    =)

    I like that app also. The same developer also has a Call Log Backup and Restore, if you need it. Both are very simple to use and works as it should.

    Hey thanks!

    I was looking for something like this so I could perform a factory reset, and now I've found it, thanks to you.

    that's not really the purpose of this app (it's a fantastic app by the way), the backup it creates is really intended to allow you to restore your texts at a later date.

    you can try TXTArchive if you want a text file readable on your PC, or better yet, use SMS Backup to automatically backup your texts to your gmail account upon receipt. you can then view/save/print your texts from your PC after logging into your GMail acount.

    Before you restore your sms (after a reset), make sure you go into the stock messaging app and tell it not to delete old sms. If you don't it will get rid of any sms restored past a certain amount (I think the default is a couple hundred messages per person). I haven't had a problem as long as I remember to do that. Hope that fixes you losing a few days worth of messages.

    To copy sms from android to computer, I recommend a program called VeryAndroid SMS Backup. It can transfer and backup sms for android to computer directly as a csv file.

    Search it and have a try.
