Looking for a solution that would automatically backup sms on Android. I am currently using IFTTT but it only triggers once or twice an hour I believe and of course requires internet.

Basically, my dad who has just switched to a smartphone likes his inbox clean. But since he is not used to conversational view and touch screen interface, he ends up deleting useful texts sometimes.

PS: I do not need a solution that can backup texts for restoring on a device. I mean more like export to a text file or spreadsheet or another app which does not get affected by deletions on the messaging app itself.

You could try SMS Backup and Restore from Carbonite, it also backup the call log as well. Gives the option for local(on Phone) or cloud backup. Been using it for quite some time. They just recently intoduced an auto/scheduled backup
