I am looking for an app that will backup my text messages automatically


iMore Question

I used to have an app on my droid phone that would backup my text messages daily to my Dropbox and my Google account. I need to keep my text messages for 5 years so iCloud won't work and I don't/can't always plug my phone into my computer and use iTunes.

Welcome to iMore! I've never heard of any in the App Store that will do that. There's not many choices for saving old messages. I don't save mine. If I have one I want to keep, I take a screenshot of it and store it in my Box app.
