SMS Backup & Restore Pro is an application that backs up (creates a copy of) the SMS and MMS messages and call logs currently available on the phone. You can also restore messages and call logs from existing backups. This is an ad-free paid version of the ad-supported free app. This application requires existing backups in order to restore call logs and messages. You cannot recover anything without existing backups. Advanced Messaging (RCS) currently only supports Google Message. The backup is created locally on the phone by default, but you have options to upload to Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, or email. At no time are the files sent to the developer. Make sure there is a backup copy outside the phone before doing a factory reset on the phone.
