It is possible to backup your received messages via Blackberry Desktop Software.

 

Do you want to just store these messages on your PC? Or you wish to read them from your PC computer ?

I want to store them mainly, but also to read later.

To backup/store your messages use Blackberry Desktop Manager software.

 

  1. Connect your device to the PC.
  2. Run the  Blackberry Desktop Manager
  3. Select "Backup and Restore" icon on the application window
  4. Click on "Advanced" button and select the information that has to be stored.

When backup completes - there is a *.ipd file on your computer created. It contains all necessary information.

 

Later you can write information from this file to the blackberry device with the same mechanism.

 

For now there is no such a standard application to read stored messages on PC Computer.

 

Try to find third-party applications for that purpose.
