AçıklamaThis application allows you to automatically backup SMS messages on your Android device to Gmail.
You'll be able to browse and search your incoming and outgoing messages - neatly put into threads - under the "SMS" label in Gmail. To browse your backed up messages, log into Gmail and click on "SMS" in the labels box, which is located in the left sidebar.
You need to have a Gmail account with IMAP enabled. See the Enabling IMAP Gmail help page to learn how to enable IMAP for your Gmail account.
SMS Backup can be downloaded and installed from Android Market. Go directly to the Android Market listing by clicking the following link on your device: Android Market listing. Click the "Install" button and confirm the required permissions.
After starting SMS Backup, enter your Google username and password. Note that the password will be stored unencrypted on your device. It is, however, only used to log into Gmail using a secure SSL connection and is not readable by other applications. See below for a description of the advanced settings.
It is important that you perform the first backup manually. SMS Backup needs to know whether you want to upload messages currently stored on your device or not. After having entered your login information, SMS Backup will ask you to perform a first sync.
If you choose to Backup, SMS Backup will start backing up your messages to Gmail. The maximum number of messages backed up at a time is set to 100 by default, so if you have a lot of messages, it will take multiple runs to completely backup everything.
If you choose to Skip, nothing is sent to Gmail and all messages currently stored on your device are simply marked "backed up". This option is handy if you previously uninstalled SMS Backup and do not want to send your messages again to Gmail. Please note that any messages arrived after you last uninstalled SMS Backup and this initial backup won't ever be backed up to Gmail.
After you performed your initial backup, SMS Backup is ready to run in the background and finish uploading all of your current and future messages.
By default, SMS Backup runs in the background to automatically backup any new arriving and outgoing messages. Incoming messages are backed up 20 seconds after they arrived on the device, while outgoing messages are backed up after a maximum of 30 minutes.
You should regularly check if there was an error backing up in the background by starting SMS Backup and looking at the state. In the future, we plan to put up a notification when an error is encountered during a background backup.
You can at any time initiate a manual backup by starting SMS Backup and clicking on the "Backup" button. The progress of the backup will be shown on the screen.
