I'm looking to backup certain text message conversations so that I can view and print them from a PC.
I've tried SMS Backup & Restore which claims to save pictures sent in the the messages. It backs up an XML file to my Google Drive, but it never has the pictures and what's worse is that it only saves the incoming messages, never my outgoing message. And the XML file usually is a format mess when I try to view it.
I've also tried SMS Backup+ which send all of my messages to my Gmail. This has worked out a little better because it's much more legible as an email chain and it saves all of the pictures that were sent as well as most emojis, but it still only saves the incoming messages and never the outgoing messages I've sent and it saves only 100 messages per email with all MMS messages at the end so they aren't all in order.
Can anyone recommend an app that saves both incoming and outgoing sides of the text conversations, hopefully with the MMS and emojis intact?
I'm using a Samsung J7, Android 7.0, AT&T carrier
EDIT: Further research is telling me that the problem seems to lie in an option I have turned on called "enhanced messaging", something called an RCS message.
