    You can also use Google's built-in cloud backup which is useful.

    Try Airdroid off the playstore. Then go to airdroid.com on your PC/laptop.

    The only challenging thing to back up from your phone at sms and mms. For almost everything else the Google's built in cloud backup as mentioned in this thread works fine.

    I use "SMS Backup & Restore" the one with the clock in center of icon. There are others, but this is the best app I've found. If you have something better - please share. If your phone is rooted there are better options. Titanium Backup, etc. I assume the OP isn't rooted.

    I've actually found Titanium Backup to not work very well with sms messages. UNLESS you're using a non-system app for messaging. The restore seems to break things.

    So for backing up system SMS, using a dedicated app is best? I thought Titanium backup took care of everything.

    I found this thread - http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...-s-can-do.html
    Will checkout those options.

    I've had problems in the past, perhaps now it is better? I've stopped using system app for texting though, so never looked back into it.

    Now that I have changed to Lollipop I can no longer tether with USB directly to my PC and move files. Any suggestions? I would rather not do it wirelessly.
