I don't believe that's quite possible yet other than when you make a back up it stores them in the backup file.

There is third party software that will do it,
I found a link to it on this site so a search might get you there...
Here: linkage

Hey -

Thanks for the replies. I opened up the backup log with a text editor [EmEditor] and was able to access much of the data. It does look a little bit munged up, but that's to be expected. Here's a sample:

     8863 Free T-Mobile Msg. The Bonus CallerTune will change on Friday Aug. 18 to "Into the Ocean" from Blue October. Visit your profile to assign it to your callers.   ; Y @  `  


Please do post any links to 3rd party solutions, though, I'd be interested in making the backup data more readily accessible.

Cheers,

Foosball

I don't know how to specifically save the SMS to a PC and I see you already have some answers to it, but if I need to keep and SMS (for whatever reason), I actually email it to myself. I choose "forward as..." then choose email and email it to myself.

Hope that helps.
