Just downloaded Dexrex today but now see it is not capable of archiving messages older than today. I need to save older messages. Are there any products that can retrieve my saved text messages? Dexrex website is not user friendly. Unable to access information about my account or my device.

Here's how I backed up ALL of my text messages (over a years worth of text messages)....
STEP 1 is to backup your Blackberry with the Blackberry Desktop software. This will create a .IPD file that you can extract all of your SMS text messages from.
STEP 2 is downloading an app called IPDdump from http://code.google.com/p/ipddump/ and using the IPDdump java program to extract all of the SMS text messages to a notepad/text file.
Granted, there are a few steps, but I have been 100% successful at extracting all SMS text messages to a notepad text file. From there, if you know how to import delimited text files into Excel, you can import the data into an Excel spreadsheet.

I have been undertaking the back up on BDS however on checking in the back up file I note that whilst the bbb file has carried on being saved, the ipd files seem to have stopped being saved and I am unable to see an option within the BDS to re-enact this option.
Anyone able to point me in the right direction as I have some extremely important text messages I need on the PC and backed up.
