Default Noob question: Can you sync SMS to outlook or similar?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone.

I am a recent Blackberry owner, and thought I would put the toe in the water and got hold of a 6230. I am liking it, and have used it for a few months extensively.

My question...I have a large number of SMS on the device. With my old pocketpc I bought an application that allowed me to sync my SMS with Outlook. Is such a beast available for Blackberries?

I would like to be able to sync my SMS with Outlook or a similar tool so they are not only backed up, but I can read them and print them out etc.

(I have backed them up using the backup tools that come with the device...just in case).

Thanks

no.

If you really like the blackberry, you'll slow down your SMS use..

if you can't get away from SMS, why buy a blackberry? SMS messages are GSM and do not count as data.

Chill, HTG...

What difference does it make if he uses a lot of SMS? I do, as well. So?

Anyway, to answer your question Brad, he's correct. There's no app available, currently that will do what you want it to do. However, when you do a complete backup using the Desktop Manager, it will back up all SMS messages, as well.

Welcome to the forums.

Sync, no but this might help:

SMS_Borer - Export SMS data from backup file(.ipd)

It is an old thread that someone just added a new post in the "aftermarket software" section.
