How to Back Up SMS from Samsung to PC

SMS has become an important part of everyday life and modern-day communication. People rely on these messages to get their word through and receive information from their recipient. For this very reason, SMS messages may contain important and sensitive information, and it becomes vital to back them up through some medium.

Fortunately, programs like Smart Switch and Android Assistant allow users to easily back up their SMS messages from their Samsung device to their PC. Here’s how you can go about it:

Back up SMS with Samsung Smart Switch

Step 1. Install the Software

Begin by downloading Smart Switch on your desktop and install the software. It is available for both Windows and Mac and can easily be obtained from the Internet. Once downloaded, run the setup file and install Smart Switch on your desktop.

Step 2. Connect Your Device

Once you’re done installing and running Smart Switch, connect your device to the computer and wait for the program to recognize it. When it does, you will see your phone’s model pop up on the Smart Switch window. This ensures that connectivity has been established between the computer and the mobile device.

Step 3. Backing Up

Now that your phone has been connected to the computer, we will move toward backing up the data. Look for the “Backup” button on the Smart Switch program. Hit the button, and this will begin the backing up process. It may take a few minutes to complete. The information being backed up includes SMS messages. By default, the backup is stored in the “Documents” folder of your system, but you can change the destination from the settings.

Step 4. Find Your Backup

You can locate the SMS backup in your Documents folder and confirm that the messages have been backed up. Now, your information is safe and stored in a device other than your mobile phone.

Step 2. Save Your Messages

Once the phone connectivity has been established between the computer and the mobile phone, we can now move toward the backup process. On the main user interface, you will see a column on the left which should have a button titled “SMS.” Click on that button and notice that all your Samsung phone messages will be brought up on the right side of the screen. You can now pick the SMS messages you want to back up by ticking them or select all of them by default.

Once you have selected your messages, click the “Save As” button, which should open a file browser window. Locate the desired place or destination where you would like to save these messages and select the type of file you would want to save your messages as. This could be either a text file or an XML file. Once that is done, hit save and the backup process should begin.
