Solution 2: SMS Backup +

As for SMS Backup +, it has some unique feature, which is automatically backing up SMS, MMS and call logs to Gmail. It’s a good concept, but as some users have said, the app fails to meet their needs because sometimes new entries cannot trigger automatic backup and MMS messages cannot restore.
