SMS/Text Message Backup Apps

In the old days, moving from one phone to another used to be a proverbial nightmare. One of the most cumbersome aspects was losing all of your text messages. Modern phones running on Android and iOS can largely avoid this issue using migration tools they have built-in, but the need for more specialized backup tools is still present.
Apps such as SMS Backup+ and mySMS enable Android users to keep specialized backups of their text messages, while other apps, including SynciOS Data Transfer, work with both Android and iOS.
