I've been using SMS Backup+ and when I restore not all my messages are restored, even though I can see them there in gmail. I've used SMS Backup and Restore before but it doesn't have a feature to automatically do it. Does anyone know how to fix SMS Backup+ or any other apps that work properly and have can automatically back up? I don't care if the backups are done to the SD card or online. One benifit of having it in gmail is that I can easily check to make sure it was done right. What do others think?
UPDATE: As of April 10 SMS Backup+ still doesn't restore all messages for some reason. I'm using an Xperia Z2.
I only wanted to find a tool that could transfer my 3100+ SMS messages. So two weeks ago, I downloaded AST Android SMS transfer to transfer SMS from old phone to the new Galaxy S3, and it works well. But it's not a free program. I also use it to backup text messages to my PC in a .csv file, it's so convenient to check my messages.
To backup/restore both sms and mms for Android, I use a paid pc tool called Backuptrans Android SMS + MMS Transfer. You need to connect your Android to computer via usb or wifi then the software will save your sms and mms messages with attachment files on computer. Restoring MMS messages from computer to Android is also simple.
