  • Is there any way to get an sms sync WITHOUT having to set phonecopy as default msg? Or is there a way to do this automatically before the sync and turn it back off afterwards? I have used a geosync at my home for years but now it all has to be done manually. unbekannten Benutzer, 09.12.16
    • Since Android KitKat (4.4) release, only the default SMS application can write and delete SMS on your phone. Unfortunately, there is no way to do it automatically (in the background) without user intervention. It's Android OS limitations, and it requires user action. PhoneCopy can not be used as a full-time default SMS app, because this is not its primary focus.

      When PhoneCopy is not as default sms app and performs synchronization of SMS it can not work with these sms, synchronizations will fail and no changes will be performed.

      • Since creating SMS on my phone really isn't an issue, (there already there) can we not tweak the app where it only "reads" the SMS from the phone and backs them up to the server? I would think, like myself, that most of your users utilize your service to "backup" and "archive" their text conversations, not really to retreive them from the server to the phone. I would ask for the capability of doing a "1 way sms geo sync" on the sms. This way, when I come home, the only thing I need to do is plug my phone in and all my text msgs from the day will automatically be archived. unbekannten Benutzer, 10.12.16
        • In case you didn't change SMSes on the server and you only want to backup SMSes which you added or deleted from your phone, there is not reason to ask you to set phonecopy as default msg. Can you, please, test following case? Synchronize your contacts and SMS. Then delete one SMS on the phone and synchronize once more. In second case we expect message will not appear. We will also do our internal testing to verify scenarios works correct. PhoneCopy support team, 10.12.16
          • I haven't been able to back up any of my texts since June 6, 2016. It gets to the end and then it loses server connection and fails. I noticed that the sync was creating texts on my phone during the sync but none appear on the server. Its like the sync is going the wrong way, loll. unbekannten Benutzer, 10.12.16
            • Hi, which phone of phones you have assigned in your profile doesn't work. We can help you but we need more information because you are using more devices. PhoneCopy support team, 11.12.16
              • Back up of your SMS without setting PhoneCopy as default application for SMS is standard way, but in this case - any changes of SMS can not be on the server. When there are any changes of SMS on the server (e.g. new created or deleted SMS), dialog window with setting of default sms app is required, because changes will be performed to your phone during sync.

                In case, you are using more devices to sync (to backup) - backed SMS from one device will be send to the second device during sync. I think, this is your case.

                So, when you want to back up your SMS automatically without setting PhoneCopy as default SMS app, back up your SMS only from one device (after manual sync with PhoneCopy as default sms app, which will perform current changes and merge state of device and server - then, no changes of SMS will be on the server and dialog with setting Phonecopy as default sms app will not be required).

                • I am using only 1 device. It is the "Scott" group (the other is my wife's) and I don't see any of my last sms on the server at all unbekannten Benutzer, 12.12.16
                  • Hi, when i looked to your synchronizations it looks you synchronized contacts only. Are you sure you selected check box for SMS as well? PhoneCopy support team, 12.12.16
                    • Ok what I did was to rename the existing group to "archive" and created new group and switched the sync to it. I will now use a manual sync to archive my texts. Hopefully soon you guys will do an update that will allow the geo sync to archive my sms automatically. unbekannten Benutzer, 12.12.16
                      • Hi, when you will do first manual sync and you will keep settings of your application your SMS will be synchronized automatically in next autosync. PhoneCopy support team, 13.12.16
