Default Synchronizing Messages (SMS)

Please Login to Remove!

I have over 3500 text messages stored on my device, which is taking up over 1MB of my device memory I was wondering if it was possible to synch only my SMS messages so i can delete them off my device but not lose them completely. I would like a backup of all my SMS messages (and other msgs if possible).

how can I do this? What are the steps?

TIA

1- No, you cannot sync mail and messages on a BIS setup.

2- Yes, use Desktop Manager to back up your BB. Then use the resulting *.ipd file from which you can extract the SMS messages should you like.

Not that i know of. Even the paid version of this app is not costly for what you need it for.

You can always search around and see. I certainly don't know all that is out there, but I did recommend the best way possible to do what you requested.
