Hello! I have memorable text messages sent by my lover and want to back them up to computer for the sake of safety. How to backup text messages on Android without app?

There are two main reasons why we want to transfer text messages to computer:

  1. Not willing to lose the treasure received SMS from lover, friends, or families.
  2. Need to delete the data on your phone in order to spare storage space.
  3. Backup Android Text Messages

Many messaging applications have the built-in ability to backup and restore your messages, but that is not always the case.

Unfortunately, the SMS app coming with Android system doesn’t have the backup capabilities.
