I just moved to a Samsung tablet from an ASUS Zenpad. I installed and configured Message+. Most of my conversations were restored, but I have one large one with messages going back many months. Most of the history is missing.
I also tried using SMS Backup to save the messages from my phone, but the Samsung tablet (using the same app) doesn't recognize the backup file, so I can't restore the messages.
Looking for help to...
1. Retrieve the messages within Message+
2. Use SMS Backup (or another app) to backup the messages on my Pixel phone and restore them on my Samsung tablet.
Might be related to the Message+ sync'ing issues currently being reported/discussed by a dozen or more threads.
The issue is that the Message+ archive only holds the last 90 days of messaging. The thread I'm looking at goes back much longer than that.
I've tried using app SMS Backup to create a backup on my phone (which has the history), but the same app doesn't seem to work to restore the backup onto the tablet.
Congrats on the new tablet. I definitely understand why transferring older texts is important. We always want to make sure you have the options you need, and we'll be glad to help.
