Now accept and decline popup will come, obviously you need to choose Accept.

When they made connection, sending phone will show some options:

“Transfer texts and call logs from the current state”, or “Use the most recent backup”. You need to choose the first one, because we really don’t have backup or our messages right ?

Wait for a while, it won’t be long. Once its done with transferring, you will get a notification on the receiving phone that you want to accept and Restore, of course you do.

Now you will get some popup regarding that starting with android 4.4 (Kitkat), only the Default app can Restore Messages. SMS Backup & Restore is currently not the Default SMS app, so you have to set SMS Backup & Restore as the Default SMS app. At least until the SMS transfer finished, so Tap OK.

In the next step you can change the default app, “yes” to make SMS Backup & Restore as your Default app.

Now the transfer begins, Stay back and let it do its work.

After finishing you will get a notification that how much messages and call history you have got on your new phone.
