I am soon going to be goign to court and alot of the evidence I need is in text messages sent from the other person but I do not know how to get the messages so that I will be able to show the court. Any help would be appreciated.

One thing you can do for future refferences is install a program that automatically sends incomming messages to an e-mail address, that way you can always take a look at them. As for saving them, I don't think you can BUT you can forward them to an e-mail address manually. Hope this helps!

The program is sms2mail, bfi

Yeah those are both good ideas. I like the ABC one but Ill have to think about paying for it since I will only probably use it once. I wonder if there is a freeware application out there.

If you dont have these programs, it really is easy to forward them to an email.
But the ipddump is sweet!!!

no, ipddump extracts from the backup *.ipd file ON your PC.

Have you been able to run this? I've tried running on the phone and on my PC and it gives an error. I even created a .jad for it also, but that was no help either.

The error it gives is "Error: Invalid manifest or application descriptor. The 'MIDlet-Name' attribute is missing."

On the PC a popup error with Java Virtual Machine Launcher: "Could not find the main class. Program will exit."
