Way to Backup and Restore Android Text Messages
One of the main reasons why a user should back up the data on their Android phones is to make sure that important information is not lost. Because data can be lost through:
- User accidentally deletes messages from their Android phones;
- Files are corrupt due to unexpected reasons;
- Physical damages to the phone that goes beyond repair. Therefore, info on the phone cannot be accessed again.
All of which are reasons why SMS will need to be backed up and restored to the Android phone. Actually we have two different solutions to help you do the SMS backup and restore process.
People usually insert an SD card into their Android phones for storing large files, such as photos, videos and music files. You can manage files on SD card. In fact, you can also export text messages and photo messages to this SD card and insert it to your new Android phone in turns.
