    Hello, I'd be extremely grateful if anyone can give me some advice.

    My sister's phone broke and she lost all the texts she'd sent, and she really misses them. I still have the ones she and I sent each other on my S4 Mini, and I'd be very grateful if someone could tell me if there's a way I can, like, back all mine up and give them to her, or send all of them in a batch to her or something?
    Realistically, there must be at least 500-1000 texts between us on my phone, and it would take me years to forward them all one by one. Is there any way I can do them all at once?

    I'd be so grateful if someone could help me -- also I'm not super tech-savvy, so if you are able to help me, I'd really appreciate it if you would really spell out for me what I have to do. Thanks so much for reading.

    Thank you so much for your reply. Can I just ask, I assume this app would back up all my texts to everyone I know, so would I be able to edit the backup so it only has the ones between me and my sister?

    I've never used the app myself, but from what I can tell in the screenshots on the Play Store page, it looks like you can select certain conversations to backup, rather than having to backup every single conversation every time. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...pRestore&hl=en
