Can anyone tell me how I can transfer texts from my Phone LG P500H to my PC to keep them? I went to a Koodo Kiosk and they told me to transfer to a SD card but they weren't able to tell me how. I went to another koodo kiosk and they told me that they never heard of being able to transfer messages to an SD card. I called Koodo and they say that they can't access them because of a privacy law. I downloaded LG suite as per the user manual and it doesn't work for this model of phone. Any suggestions out there? Tks

Navigate over to the google play store and grab sms backup

Paired with your Google's account, this aoftware backsuo your text messages to a folder on your gmail. I do believe it can restore then too.

There's another user-friendly one: MightyText

You can send texts thru your phone from your wifi-connected computer, using the BIG keyboard & screen. Backup default is 60 days worth of messages.

Personally, I've used this app and it works amazingly for both backup and restore. Does it automatically when you plug your phone in

recommend this one, they also have a call log backup too from the same developer in case you want that as well
