We communicate with our friends, family members, clients, colleagues by messages. Under some situations, you will lose your vital text messages on your Samsung Galaxy S8/S7/S6/S5/S4, Note 7/5/4/3 device. For example, if you break or crash Samsung device by accident, your phone data may be missing from your Samsung phone; and if you get your phone formatted or fail to flash your Android system, your inbox and outbox are likely to be emptied and text messages will be wiped entirely. As a result, it is necessary for you to transfer text messages from Samsung phone to computer for backup.

Thus, what if you have to delete some data from your cell phone to release more free space or you have saved a lot of important messages on your Samsung device and you never wish to lose them? Different from other media files, text messages can’t be stored on the external memory card, only can be saved in the internal memory. Therefore, SMS transfer job will be more difficult.
