Help I need help I have 1958 messages saved but when I switch to HTC RESOUND from HTC RYHME I DIDNT SEE A FILE FOR MY SAVED MESSAGES ON MY NEW PHONE. PLEASE HELP ME

Works great! I was upgrading from a Droid X to a Galaxy S3 and wanted save my texts. Advice: to restore, you must copy the saved log and move it to the program In your files.

Life Saver! Michele Valentini, your program is a life saver! The only criticism I have, is that novice users (99% of everyone), may have trouble restoring their data to a new phone if they don't know how to use a file manager app to move the XML file to the correct location. A "Location chooser" would be an exceptional addition to this most welcome program. It's too bad nobody's figured out how to handle MMS's yet. Galaxy S III

Awesome essential app. Thanks!

by A Google User the 8/20/2012

Stylesheet/instructions??? I saved my messages, but apparently can't display the xml file without a stylesheet, but where is the stylesheet? I can find no instructions to make this app do a damned thing!

Used to love it. Used to love it, but the last few times I tried to back up messages got error messages. Now I can't retrieve most recent backup.

Works This works every time like clockwork, it's very reliable. When I had initial problems, I emailed the 'Maker', but I got no help, no reply. I figured out in the end that I had to remove some 'illegal' characters from the xml file.

SGS This is best app

by A Google User the 6/30/2012

Kills Oh thank you, thank you! I backed up using another app, but it didn't restore properly! I tried other ones too, but this one finally did the trick.
