Default retrieving texts off a broken pearl

Please Login to Remove!

my tracking ball system fell out yesterday before I knew it and well, it's finished. I've ordered a new phone (yay replacement!) but in the meantime, I can only make/recieve calls because I can't move the arrow over the screen. BUT...I have a number of texts that are on the phone. I don't care about the emails, since I can get them on my PC, but the texts...I don't even know who they are from!!!!
Is there ANY WAY to get the texts since I can't move anything without a tracking ball??????
Thanks a lot.

You may be able to do a backup of your device and restore the texts to the new phone. I know it can be done with emails and phone logs.....

Download and install the latest Desktop Manager on your PC and run the backup.

Before ordering a new phone, did you try this?

BLACKBERRY 8100 PEARL GSM CELLPHONE PARTS - RIM BLACKBERRY CELL PHONE REPAIR PARTS

and yes, you can backup the entire contents of your phone using the Desktop Manager, including sms and restore it to the new phone.
