Re: SMS Text Messages

Hello there,

 

The only way that you can restore a deleted item, such as an SMS or email, is if you have backed up your BlackBerry with the Desktop Manager. If you have done so you can then restore your BlackBerry with whatever information was on that particular backup, i.e. any SMS texts, emails, contacts etc. If you're a person who needs to save these sort of things you may wanty to think about setting up the Desktop Manager and backing up your BlackBerry every once and awhile.

 

Hope this helped,

Greg

Oops, not good.

 

Once deleted from the device, deleted for good... unless you have a recent backup.

Re: SMS Text Messages

Hi,

 

Thanks for this information.

 

I too would like to restore my deleted text messages but they are all gone now .. with one slip of the finger .. though I wonder if there is some kind of limit on how many text messages the system can take. I say this because I don´t really think I accidentally deleted them.

 

I deleted ONE person´s texts to me ... but I made sure that I did not delete the OTHER person´s text messages .. though woooosh ... suddenly they were all gone too. Smiley Sad I could  just cry.

 

So I have 2 questions now:

 

1.  Is there ia character limit or some limit on how long much text can stay on the blackberry

2. To avoid  this in the future .. how can I acquire the Device Manager software so that I can backup my text messages

1. No.

 

2. The BlackBerry Desktop Software, download it here:

Good luck!
