good idea but in NZ it is a prohibitive cost wise to email or use internet from your phone (nz cell providers are ripping us off big time) so a more elegant solution using a usb process is better for me.

Do you not have a BlackBerry data plan for your device?

Default view sms messages on computer

Use Blackberry Desktop Software to backup your BB
download magicberry [download.cnet.com/MagicBerry-Blackberry-IPD-Editor-and-Converter/3000-10743_4-10962130.html]

Install and launch magicberry and browse to the download folder and you can read all your sms messages.

Easiest way to do this is download a backup application. If you were to download mIQ Live you can view all your texts from the web, as well as respond from there... Pretty convenient!
