SMS Backup & Restore Pro v6.01

A simple App to Backup and Restore SMS Messages!
SMS Backup & Restore Pro is a Paid No-Ads version of the Ad-Supported Free App.

Note: On newer phones with inbuilt storage the default backup location will probably be the internal storage card and not the external. This is because the phone reports the storage that way. If you intend to do a factory reset on the phone, please make sure you save/email a copy of the backup outside the phone before doing the reset.
