Backing up your text messages

Backing up your text messages

Keep important text messages by backing them up to the phone storage or storage card. You can easily restore backed up text messages after you've deleted them from your message list.
Important:
  • When there's a storage card inserted, HTC EVO 4G LTE will only back up and restore text messages from the storage card.
  • Remove your storage card if you want to use the phone storage for backing up or restoring messages.
  1. From the Home screen, tap > Messages.
  2. Tap > Back up/Restore SMS > Back up > Back up SMS.
  3. Enter a name for your backup file, and then tap OK.
