I personally like to backup all of my text messages. Sometimes, I need to get back into old messages to find an information. Other times, it simply allows me to read old conversation I had. If I were able to keep all those text messages into my phone I would do it, but the space is limited and this is not possible. Backing up those messages on my Gmail account is a great solution; it allows me to keep every messages with no space limitation and easily find specifics messages with the Gmail search tool.
I will now tell you how to backup your text messages on your Android phone in a easy way.
How to backup text messages on Gmail account
Download and install the free SMS Backup + app on Google store.
Press on Connect and select the Gmail account you want to use for the backup. Your phone must already be sync with that Gmail account.
When it asks you if you want to skip or backup; select backup. The backup will then start automatically and you will need to wait until your backup is complete!
