    I have some pictures and text messages that I need to save to my home computer. How do I do this? I can't seem to find a way to do it from my Samsung Galaxy S4 phone. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Are the pictures in MMS messages? You'll have to save them first if they are. Otherwise you should just be able to connect your device to a computer and copy the pictures off that way, your device should show as a media device or digital camera. Drag-and-drop regardless. Or you can use a service like Google Drive to upload the pictures to it for downloading on another device. You may need to install Samsung Drivers if your device doesn't do it automatically.

    As for backing SMS up to a readable way, I recommend Super BackUp { https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.idea.backup.smscontacts } which allows you to e-mail or upload to Google Drive the file. I didn't have any luck restoring SMS after a factory reset with it though, but it does save them to an .XML file with the message, the number, and a contact name if you have one set.

    Here is a previous version of the .APK because I see from the Google Play Store reviews there are current issues since the latest update. They should get it sorted ASAP though so you can wait too!
