    Default Kies won't back up texts

    I tried connecting my phone to Kies last night to back up my phone, and it backed up everything except my texts. It said there were no messages found, which is impossible since I have alot of texts. I really need to back these up!

    Sent from my Holy crap this is awesome S5 :-D

    Until you can resolve the Kies problem, use this App to backup your text: SMS Backup & Restore - Play Store

    I don't recall if it does mms, so take a look at other Apps in the play store for that. If you need to also backup the call log, the above developer also provides an App for that.

    Take a look at this Kies FAQ, hopefully it helps: What can I backup and recover from my device using Kies? : Cell Phones | Samsung
