I was using my backup root, and come to find out you must purchase the pro version if your jumping from rom to rom...I done some digging and this process works great...The props should go to:razor02097 (incredible forum)....

I tested it and it works on both sms/mms:

How to automatically backup your SMS/MMS messages with Titanium Backup (Rooted Users)

So you have seen all those sms backup apps but none tickle your fancy... You are rooted and have Titanium backup. You know how to backup your messages but you don't want to have to manually backup your messages all the time. Good thing there is an easy way to tell Titanium Backup to do it for you.

The following is exact step by step instructions.

Open app drawer
Open Titanium Backup
Press the menu radio button
Select "Filters"
At the bottom press the "Create label" button
Name your label whatever you want
Press the "Add/Remove elements _" button
Check the "[SMS/MMS/APN] Dialer Storage 2.2" checkbox
Press the "OK" button
Press the "Save" button
Press the back radio button
Select the "Schedules" tab
Press the "Add new schedule" button located at the bottom
On the schedule that just appeared press the "Edit" button
On the top combo box select the arrow to pull down the menu. Select the "Backup all system data" option
On the next combo box that says "No filtering", click the arrow to pull down a menu. You should see your label you created. Select your label.
Select the time you want your backup to take place
Select the days you want your backup to take place
Press the "Save" button
Check the "Enabled" check box to enable your schedule
Now Titanium Backup will automatically backup your messages at the specified time and day or days.


Note: You will need the Titanium backup pro key to access the batch operations.

The call history is in:"[CONTACTS/CALLS] Contacts Storage 2.2"

****Keep in mind our numbers will be different sms/mms/apn dialer storage 2.3.4
***Call history: contacts/calls contacts storage 2.3.4

Enjoy......

you do know that sense has this option built in right?

in the messages app>menu key>backup sms (it also backs up mms)


if you are using a 3rd party sms program then disregard


also this should be posted in general or maybe themes and apps not in development. thanks for the guide though

Are you sure about the Sense option working for MMS messages? I was using that method for a while, but switched to TiBu because Sense wasn't restoring my MMS messages. Maybe I missed an option somewhere. I'll have to give it another look.

Nope...both the backup SMS option built into Sense and SMS Backup and Restore do not restore MMS messages.

I use TiBu to back up my SMS/MMS and only restore data.

I believe go sms does both. I always save all photos anyway since the backup/restore within go sms works flawlessly for me

I'm going to simply say thank you. I've tried all those other methods and they never work correctly. They'll have the times wrong or all the sent messages listed and then the received. No MMS backup. Just complete failure. I have the Pro (key) version of TiB so that's no issue. I'm definately going to try ur finding.
