People change smart phones these days like cloths for different reasons; buying the Latest flashy, higher memory, larger screen and luxuriously advertised one. If you've recently gotten a new android device and wish to transfer all Phone contacts and SMS messages to the new device, here are some tips that may help make the transition seamless.

How to Backup Android Phone Contacts To Gmail
Android devices require a Gmail account to download applications from the Play Store - If you've added one, then that Email address has been used to backup your contacts already - Sign into the new device and all contacts on the old device.
You can also use the EXPORT feature in android contacts list options which will send all contacts to sim or export to SD Card. However, text messages require a different backup method.

How to Backup / Transfer All contacts and SMS from iPhone or Android to other smartphones.
Important text messages may contain information that you never want to delete, So moving all SMS in inbox, draft, sent to your new android device is necessary. To do this we're going to need an Application called SMS Backup +. Download the app from Google Play store on Both devices, Backup contacts on one and restore on the new device. (Gmail account with IMAP enabled is required).

I would highly recommend using this Application On your PC called Moborobo.
It's the perfect Mobile phone managing software to backup / restore contacts, sms, applications, music, pictures and more. It supports iPhone and android devices.

I don't think the way is the best.


Hey JerryHall,

I'd like to know your recommended method of SMS / Contacts backup on iOS or Android.
The post was written 2013, at that time Moborobo was the best options but for those who don't own a PC, there are other softwares now downloadable on Android Play Store that can backup SMS / Contacts to SD card.

I still think Syncing contacts to Email is the best to use tho.
