Yes, it is asked here often. You need to backup your BB device, which creates a IPD file. From there you can convert and read the SMS... which is all quite cumbersome to do just to read them.

Look the in the FAQ , Third Party Applications for ABC Amber converter, and IPDConverter, to read the IPD file.
