Sorry, Max, the Wonderdshare MobileGo for Android doesn't support it for the time being, but you can see the text messages on your computer.
Will this also allow me to see the pictures on my computer that I received via SMS in text messages?
Thomas Jones
Sorry, Alp, I misunderstood you. In your case, I'm afraid that your phone WiFi network and computer network are different. Only when your phone and computer use the same network can you use MobileGo.
I had already did all what you said. I also had already said "via usb it's an excellent app". That means I used it via usb. However now usb port is broken. I want to connect via wifi What you said about connection is obviously repeated here and there. But this magic just doesnt happen in my case. Summary: I downloaded the app. installed both on pc and android mobile phone. scanned the code. But the wifi connection did not happen. My pc does not show any wifi request. What the heaven is wifi request? I never heard of it so many years of programming and internetting.

Just download the setup file again from this page.

Alp, If it's your first time to use MobileGo for Android, you need to download and install MobileGo app on your Android device. Then, run the desktop MobileGo for Android software on computer and tap MobileGo app on your Android device. Make sure your WiFi is turned on. And then, use MobileGo app to scan the QR code in the window shown on the computer. When it's successful, your Android device will be connected.
What the heaven is a "wifi request"? how and where to see the wifi request? where should it show up? Why so too much concisely do you describe such an important issue and don't give you any detail about it? via usb, it is an excellent software. My usb port is broken, I need to connect via wifi.
i hav downloaded the setup file several times, but when i try to install the software a dialog box with message setup files are corrupted appears

Angelina, if you backup your Galaxy S4 with MobileGo, you can restore them to your phone eaisly. Click "Tookit" > "Restore" > Select your Galaxy S4 backup file and restore it. Or, click "SMS" > Import/Export > Import SMS from computer to import the SMS to your phone. To see the messages on your PC, you can use Notepad++. But be careful, because it may destroy your messages.
Hi. I backed up my Galaxy 4 yesterday and as I knew it had to have a system reset done. How do I get the text messages I saved to pc back on my phone and how do I see the messages on my pc? Thanks
