Re: SMS and Calender Entries Backup

You have no access to the SMS data storage. The only way to get access is to set up a message listener and catch the SMS messages as they come in to the device.


See this KB article:




For calendar events, these are stored in the PIM library. See PIMList, PIMItem, BlackberryEvent in the javadocs.


See this KB article (shows how to create a new calendar event - the closest thing I could find):

Re: SMS and Calender Entries Backup

You can backup your SMS and calendar entries using a 3rd party app, such as mIQ. mIQ syncs your SMS and calendar events, as well as contacts, photos & videos, wirelessly to a private web account for your viewing. Hope that was helpful!
