Copy Text Messages to PC

Is it possible to copy text messages received on my BlackBerry Bold 9700 to my PC as accessible text files?

If yes, please advise how.

I am using BlackBerry Desktop Sofware Version 6.0.2.44 released 25 April 2011 (Bundle 45).

Re: Copy Text Messages to PC

Using a third party application named DexRex, you can do that. Google it.

 

Good luck.

Re: Copy Text Messages to PC

I have installed Dexrex, but when I open it, I get a screen that says: dexrex v2.0.1 Status: Archiving; Archived Messages (Today); SMS: 1; MMS: Pro only; BBM Pro only. How can I copy the hundreds of SMSs already on my phone to my PC?

Re: Copy Text Messages to PC

Nope! This is not working for me. A very peculiar software. On the BB screen I see that it has now copied 1, 10 minutes later: it has now copied 2, etc. I have no idea to where it is copying; there's abosolutely no options to set, or any opportunity for user intervention. After approximately 2 hours it shows that it has copied 7. Later during the evening I get an e-mail with what appears to be a list of sms's from my BB. BUT, the senders of the messages are totally wrong. Thanks, but no thanks; I'll look a little further.

Have you looked at MagicBerry?  You need to create Backup using Blackberry Desktop, then MagicBerry can read the .ipd file and export to various formats.   You'll need at least version 3 of MagicBerry

Re: Copy Text Messages to PC

A very BIG thanks bigc! MagicBerry is exactly the kind of application I was looking for: simple; no frills; no fuss.

Makes one wonder why this is not part of the standard BB Desktop Software.
