SMS Backup & Restore is an application that backs up (creates a copy) SMS and MMS messages and call logs currently available on the phone. It can also restore messages and call logs from already existing backups.
Note: This app requires existing backups to be able to restore call logs and messages. It cannot recover anything without the existing backups. Advanced Messaging (RCS) is currently only supported with Google Messages.
