    I use GO SMS to back up SMS. It does both ways and has an option to email.

    Press Menu>services tab>SMS B&R. Set your settings there for Backup and Restore too. Its going to send an Email to your Gmail account with an attached XML file of your backups.

    Since you now have Go SMS, remember to turn of notifications for either it, or the stock SMS app, as you'll get two notifications per message if you dont.

    +1 for SMS Backup +
    Having had 4 different Androids in the past three months, it has been invaluable.

    Ok !

    Yesterday I have installed GO SMS Pro

    I don't really know the difference between GO SMS Pro and SMS Backup +

    It seems that GO SMS Pro is a wrapper for Android messaging offering some Back-Up facilities

    And maybe SMS Back-Up + is much more a Back-Up tool

    Any idea ?

    Go SMS Pro is an alternative messaging app that has more features than the standard messaging app, like themes, ability to send to groups of more than 20 people at once, SMS popups, and has backup features.

    SMS Backup Pro+ on the other hand is an actual back up app.
