Install SmartSwitch on PC. Plug the phone in and then select Backup.

Doesn't work. There IS no "Backup" selection.
There are TWO choices: 1. Backup to new phone by cable, 2. Backup to new phone by Wi-Fi
There's no setting for backing up to a PC.

Anybody know of a FREE app that will back up text messages from an Android phone to a PC?

The SMS Backup & Restore app I previously linked says it has ads, but no in-app purchases, so I believe it's free. According to the description, the XML backup file is saved locally, but can be uploaded to a cloud storage. From there, you could easily download the file to your PC.
