Re: Lost Backup with Android Gingerbread upgrade

once you restore them, check this other apps to backup sms/mms

SMS/MMS

if you don't want to use the backup & restore app then

Install "backup SMS" to back up your SMS and MMS to your Gmail

or your SMS use

"backup & restore SMS"

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.riteshsahu.SMSBackupRestore&feature=search_result

or for your MMS use "Save MMS"

Re: Lost Backup with Android Gingerbread upgrade

Thanks for the quick reply.

I tried as you suggested, but the problem remains: Error at 3% (on both backup versions) when restoring only text messages.

Any ideas?

PS: Way ahead of you on the 3rd party backup software. I'm never running any SE exclusive app again.

Hey,

Thanks for your tips. I had the same issue with backup and restore not being installed using the SE way but downloading the apk manually worked a charm!!! Thanks a ton

Re: Lost Backup with Android Gingerbread upgrade

that happened to me before when I installed it on the Arc, what I did was to downloaded it directly from my phone and it worked just fine
