Default Need Option to Send SMS As Email

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All, my neighbour has asked me for some assistance.
They have a Blackberry 8520 running OS 5 and have a requirement to archive their SMS to PC. My device which is connected to a BES running the same OS has an option to send as email while their device does not.

Is someone able to assist with this? Is it a case of upgrading the OS to get this option? I have read on the forum about taking a backup and downloading some software to read the .IPD file but thought getting the Send as Email option would be more convenient.

Grateful for ideas and options. Thank you

Not sure this will work for you but I have an option to "select more" and it then allows me to email the text messages. Unless i select this i dont have the ability to send a single text via email. It might have something to do with emailing a single text message vs. selecting multiples.

On a 9810, non BES i see an option to send multiples via email by touch selecting multiples. Until multiples are selected, the email icon is blank.

Thank you for the reply.

I will check on their device but when I had a look when looking at the text when clicking the menu button there was an option to call the sender and that was about it! The options was just for a delivery report etc.

I am wondering if a OS upgrade will help?

doing some reading I found this

You can forward SMS text messages as PIN messages or email messages. If your BlackBerry® device is connected to a CDMA network, you can
also send an SMS text message to an email address.


I tried this and simply instead of using a phone number I entered an email address.

Once you get it to Email you can do what ever you need.
