HTC EVO 4G : How To Backup Text Messages When Root

Jun 7, 2010

Can anyone tell me how to backup my text messages so that I don't lose them when I root?

I am not even seeing a way to copy and paste them into a document or anything. Any Android vets know how I can go about saving them to the SD card, or emailing them somehow, or somehow sync them to the cloud, or even copy them to my computer?

General :: SMS App To Backup Text Messages?

May 29, 2014

I'm looking around for a textmessage app that allows me to send/recieve texts (like the default app) but also allows me to backup and store (maybe online) my messages.

For example:If I would buy a new phone, I just needed to redownload the app and restore my texts.

Is something like this available in the Play Store or not?I've looked around but the only things I could find were textmessage apps with some added fuctionality (fancy design and emoji-stuff), so not really the thing I'm looking for.

HTC EVO 4G :: Restore Text Messages SMS Backup Archived In Gmail?

Aug 5, 2010

Is there any way to push the msgs archived in the SMS folder that SMS backup creates in gmail back to the phone after a wipe? I've searched and searched and cannot find an answer or a trick to restore the backed up msgs. It's nice having the msgs backed up on Gmail but it would be nicer if I could have them on my phone as well.

General :: Way To Have Text Messages Forwarded To Email Address As Backup?

Jan 4, 2012

I did a quick search and didn't find any posts relating to text message limits.I have what I believe is a Motorola Droid 1 (How do I find out for sure?) using Verizon as my carrier.

I was told that any text message sent to me that is larger than the standard 160 characters, would be split up into two or more messages. This is not happening on my phone, and I'm wondering if this is an OS problem, phone problem, or if I just need to call Verizon to have them investigate?

I have gotten several texts that were cut off, never to receive the rest of the message.Also, is there a way to have text messages forwarded to an email address as a backup?

Samsung Moment :: Anyway To Increase Text Size Of Emails And Text Messages?

Feb 19, 2010

I did attempt to use the search feature here but didnt come up with the results I was looking for (or maybe I used it wrong?) I ask the following questions because unfortunately, I dont have good eyesight.

1. Regarding font size. I realize there is no current setting for font size on this phone (that I know of) does anyone here know if the upcoming 2.1 update will include that?

2. I know there is a text size option for the browser. However, it doesent seem to work on most websites I go to (like CNN for example) I try setting it at different sizes and nada. So far my browsing experience hasent been that good because of this (having to constantly strain my eyes looking at website text) Any tips on why the text size option doesent seem to work?

3. is there anyway to increase the text size of emails and text messages?

General :: Pasting As Plain Text To Prevent Text Messages Converting To MMS?

Jun 24, 2013

If I need to paste text from another app in my Android phone (Samsung Galaxy SII, O2, Jelly Bean), like from Google Keep or Docs, into a text message it tends to convert from an SMS to MMS. This leads to a charge for me as my SMS messages are included in my tariff but I have no allowance for MMS messages. I presume that this might be something to do with character encoding or other formatting data that is pasted in, but that is only a guess.

Is there any way to stop short messages from being converted to MMS messages like this:? I couldn't find any 'paste clipboard as plain text' option in Android Jelly Bean.

HTC Desire :: Backup Of Phone And Messages Apps Music Etc

Sep 7, 2010

I would like to do a whole backup of the phone and messages, apps, music etc.

I see that on the phone there is an option to do Auto backup to the SD card, which I have just ticked. My question on is is long does it take to backup, and when does this happen? As I have had no messages to tell me if this is working.

Also, is there a way to manually backup the same data, using an app or something like that?

HTC EVO 4G :: How To Backup Before Root?

Aug 3, 2010

I'm currently on the stock 2.1-update1 Evo Android build, and I want to root the phone before I upgrade to a 2.2 rom. The problem is that I want to perform a full backup of the phone, but I can't figure out how to do that. Many tutorials encourage you to do a NAND backup & backup using Titanium, but in order to do that, you need to have root access. I can't figure out which comes first. I've looked into performing the Simple Root, but as I understand it, it'll wipe my phone clean before rooting. If I need to backup my data before rooting, but need to root before I can install the backup software then how do I get anything done?

HTC Incredible :: Pre-Root Backup

Jul 18, 2010

I'd like to use the new Unrevoked root on my Incredible. The only problem right now is that I'd like to know my path back to root-free and stock. That path currently involves wiping everything, that kinda sucks.

Right now I'm scattered throughout backups. Lookout for contacts/call history/pictures, SMS Backup/Restore for that, VZW Backup Assistant, ASTRO for my apps. I feel like restoring all that would be a pain.

Is there a way to snapshot my current pre-root state so I can restore it if I decide to unroot?

HTC Desire :: Pre-Root Backup -

Jul 13, 2010

I fancy rooting my Desire and the instructions seem simple enough, but one thing I'm confused about is backing up my phone before beginning the root process.

All the backup suggestions appear to need "root-enabled" tools to complete; Nandroid etc. So its chicken and egg, I need to root to take a backup, but I want to take a backup pre-root?

Granted, there isn't much to save I suppose as all my emails, contacts and apps are attached to my gmail / app brain accounts.

But what about all my messages in say Handcent, i'd like to keep all those etc. Is this possible?

HTC Incredible :: Backup/restore After Root

Oct 3, 2010

Rooted my FroyoDinc w/ unrevoked 3 and unrevoked forever this morning. In my haste to explore I started deleting some of the Verizon bloatware such as Friendstream, Facebook, Footprint, City ID as well as a couple of others before stopping when I remembered that I should have immediatly run a nandroid and titanium backup after root.

My question, can I still use this nandroid and or titanium backup I made, minus the 4 or 5 misc items I deleted before backup, to restore my Dinc to stock if need be for either the next OTA update or if I run into problems playing w/ various ROM's?

Android :: App Similar To Titanium Backup For Root?

Mar 25, 2010

I currently use Titanium Backup, but it is growing tiring to have to sit there and man the phone while I am restoring apps, so now I am looking for another app that will restore apps and data without having to choose each app individually. I know most people will say "Just buy the donate version". Unfortunately that is not an option for me. Why not? Because the dev doesn't offer the donate version in Market, nor does he offer a donate through google checkout. His donation is paypal only, and due to some recent VERY bad experiences with paypal, I have closed out my account and I refuse to ever use paypal again. what options am I left with? I've been poking around market for a while now, but it seems like every other backup I can find is for personal data only.

HTC Hero :: How To Root - Install Custom ROM - Backup - More

Mar 20, 2010

I have seen many threads & posts from confused Hero owners. The forum is cluttered full of them. So I thought it would be good for all the information to reside in one thread and if people are still having problems then they should make a new thread. I understand that it is sometimes difficult to find the right instructions as there are conflicting posts / thread everywhere.
There are so many guides out there. Each more confusing than the last. So many unnecessary steps. This way is quick and easy.

Note: I have to the best of my knowledge checked and performed the following guides myself and confirm that they work. If my spelling or grammar is wrong, my methods are wrong, you'd like to add something or whatever please Private Message me with the URL of the post and please specify what is wrong. I will try and change / update it ASAP.

I take no responsibility for anything that may go wrong. It is your responsibility to BACKUP everything periodically. The end.

The following Guides are for GSM Hero's Only (Europe)... US / Sprint Users Please See Here

I have made the following GUIDES:-

I Have A Samsung Galaxy S Now ^_^ So Unfortunately This Guide Is No Longer Going To Be Updated/Supported. However Everything Within This Guide Will Still Work & Will Be Valid For Ever & Ever ...
