Saving SMS messages ?

 Hello , I used to be able to backup my SMS messages and open them with notepad !   The last time I tried this all I got was a jumbled up mess of letters , numbers and symbles !

 Does anyone know how this can be corrected ??

Hi 90Tazfreak and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums!


How were you doing this in the past? Currently there is no way to backup your SMS messages and read them on your computer.

Re: Saving SMS messages ?

 I was saving them with the backup feature in the Blackberry software and then weeding out all the extra symbols and letters !

 This has only worked once since getting my new laptop and wasn't sure if it was just something I changed in my computer or not ?


 Seemed to work fine with Windows XP but not so good with the new Windows 7
