Why Are Copies So Important?

You may have been caught in such trouble as many other users: you lost some extremely important data on your phone, for instance, your text messages with your loved ones or your boss, it was probably because your phone was stolen when you were window shopping, it fell down to the ground and went broken, or you accidentally dropped it to the toilet. I’m sure you have been absolutely upset and wished you had a copy of the messages, so you need to transfer text messages or Contacts from LG to PC for backup.

Why are copies so important? First, contacts and text messages themselves are important, as they’re more private than phone calls (you may be heard by people around you when making a call), more convenient than emails or Instant Messenger, and most helpful for people with hearing or speaking problems. Additionally, even if a phone is turned off, you can still send text messages to it, for the messages will be saved in the short message service center. Once the phone is turned on or enters the service area, it will receive them. If they aren’t deleted, they’ll be saved in your SIM card. But if your phone is stolen, your SIM card is damaged, or if you delete the messages by mistake, you’ll never get them back, and all the data will be lost. In this case, you need a safer place to store them, which will soon be introduced here.

Backup LG Messages, Contacts to Your Personal Computer

Both contacts and text messages are stored in ROM. But RO (Read Only) is just for programs, for these two, which are files, can also be modified. When you want to transfer data, usually to a new phone, you often choose to copy them to the SD or SIM card. The former is the external saving space for a mobile phone, and the latter is a user identity card recording users’ important data and information. However, if we lose the cards, like when we lose our phones, the data will as well be gone. Thus, in order to prevent them from missing, you need to back them up by transferring them to what we mentioned as a safer place to store, which’s the computer.

Although you can write down all those important data on paper in case of losing them, or you can copy them to the cards, there’s a more useful tool to help you handle them - Vibosoft Android Mobile Manager.
