How to Backup Texts on iPhone

As a primary mode of communication, you probably have some of your most important conversations with friends, family and even co-workers via text message. But just like any other type of data on your iPhone, text messages are prone to loss. You can accidentally delete an important message, a system failure can wipe away all the messages on your device or hardware damage to your device can cause you to lose all your important text messages.

It is therefore important to have a backup for text messages. Yet, most iPhone users don’t like to back up their text messages via iTunes or iCloud. Most people say it can be very difficult to access the messages at a later date owing to the fact that iTunes and iCloud backup files are inaccessible unless you restore the device. And since no one wants to restore the device just to get back a few text messages, we have an alternative way to back up your text messages so they will be easily accessible when you need them.
