Text message conversations--how do I download for viewing on PC?

I would like to view and print text message conversations (I have one that is comprised of over 3000 texts) on my PC.  Does anyone know how this might be done?

You'll need a third party software such as DexRex to do this.

There are others... I only know of this one.

Re: Text message conversations--how do I download for viewing on PC?

Thanks.  I checked this site out.  Seems to have no ability to download to PC, or upload old conversations on my BB. It will archive new texts, beginning at account creation, to a web-based account.

 

I can backup old texts to my PC of course but cannot view them, except on my phone.  Want to review them from the first text. And perhaps print them, or share with others. Very hard/impossible to do from the phone.  I would like to review them from my PC, perhaps from a word processor.  Other thoughts?

Have you figured out how you can do this?  I am looking to do the same.

Also a good suggestion is MagicBerry, you backup your BlackBerry to the PC and use MagicBerry to read and extract the SMS messages out of the resulting backup IPD file.
