    Hi. I want to buy an app from Market Place, that can do backups of my phone. I want for it to not to only back up my text messages, but everything else... Dates are mandatory... I have Samsung Galaxy S III, and will be rooted by this weekend.

    Thank You

    Edit:
    Is this My Back Up Pro by Rerware, LLC any good??

    The only TRUE backup is a NANDroid backup. That can be done in custom recoveries.

    If you expect to flash a TON of ROMs, Titanium Backup PRO is the best. It can create a .zip of your apps which you can flash after flashing a new ROM.

    For general backup, I would recommend MyBackup PRO. You can schedule a backup (I do it every other night) and forget about it until you need it. It does backup .apk and data if you're rooted. These backups cannot be flashed, but can be restored through the app after flashing a ROM. I also use this for one-off backups of an .apk I want to keep and upload to DropBox.

    What do you mean by "Dates?" The date a text was received? They both should do that...it is stored within the data

    Exactly that. I meant the dates of when that message was received. I didn't know they all restore those dates.

    From the MyBackup PRO description....

    Backup (with schedule option) to our online secure servers, or SD card, your Applications, Photos, Music, Videos, Contacts, Call log, Browser Bookmarks, SMS (text messages), MMS (message attachments), Calendar, System Settings, Home Screens (including shortcut positions), Alarms, Dictionary, Music Playlists, APNs, and more...

    It works, and works well.

    25 messages all are going to be dated from Monday Nov 26, when they all came in on different dates? That 26, is the date of the backup.

    They will or will not have the correct date?? What is the final decision? What app to buy?

    Actually Titanium does back these up. However, the way messages are stored in Android means that the Titanium backup of these does not work for moving messages between ROMs.

    However, Titanium Pro has the option to back up messages in xml format as well, which should let you copy them between ROMs as well as backing up.

    There are of course many dedicated message backup apps. I personally use SMS Backup+ for messages, with calendar backed-up by Google. And I have both MyBackup and Titanium. But if I was only allowed one I would choose Titanium.

    From what I understand about formatting of text messages, if the message is backed up, the date is backed up also. The timestamp is part of the actual text message. So any backup app that backs up texts specifically, will back them up with the original date and time the text was sent (not received) because again the timestamp is part of the message itself. This article is quite informative How Stuff Works.
