This really is a great work you are doing! Just want to say 'Thank you!' and ask to finish the whole thing, it will be a great place for any beginner to really get 'hands dirty' with the code!

RE: sms backup
Ok, so what I could find so far:
- Following this link ( https://askubuntu.com/questions/601950/import-sms-mms-on-ubuntu-touch ) , I've copied this 'history.sqlite' file from ~/.local/share/history-service/ directory to my PC.
- This file cannot be accessed via File Manager, so either use Terminal application and mangle through typing commands or use connection via SSH or smth similar
- I examined this 'history.sqlite' with DB Browser for SQLite app ( http://sqlitebrowser.org ), in this DB you can find table called 'text_events' - this is basically your SMS's.
Not a user friendly way, but hey, watcha gonna do If you're an expert in bash/SQL - I bet you can write a script to export all the SMS's less painfully. MB some code in Python could do as well - I bet there are some bindings to SQLite in it. This is for the 'export' part.
'Import' would be much more trickier I guess, cause you probably will have to account for inner structure of this database - who knows which data is binded to which or where it is referred (tables, triggers, procedures). Some experimentation is necessary to find out for sure.
Hope this will help somebody except me
