How to Transfer Text Messages from HTC U11/M10/M9 to Computer

Feb. . Posted by to Android Topic

With the rapid development of mobile technology, smartphones that are made in nowadays is almost like a mini computer. You can do a lot of things on the phone now such as text messaging, photography, watching movies, which functions are far more advance than the original cell phone that can only make phone calls and send text messages. The consequence is that no matter how much storage you have with the new phone, there is still no enough in some days after you bought the device. And HTC One M9 is not an exception.

As stated above, most smartphones have limited number in the text box and when you hit the limit, you will be prompted to delete some text messages to make room for incoming ones. Deleting a text message is easy but what if those messages contain important information that you want to keep? Or there are some of the sensitive messages that you prepare to delete them once received it or want to keep it private in another place? The ideal solution is to back up the messages to a computer. And Android Manager is the best candidate for this task I have ever found in regards of efficiency and user friendly.
