How to Backup Your SMS on a BlackBerry


Your BlackBerry’s messaging application provides a record of all the text message conversations you have had while you have owned the BlackBerry. Sometimes, these messages can include statements or information that you don’t want to lose if the device gets lost, stolen, damaged or simply needs to be wiped. Research In Motion provided a solution for this problem by allowing the BlackBerry Desktop Software to back up almost everything on the device. The software also allows you to just backup specific applications, so you can create a backup file with just your SMS text messages.

Things You’ll Need : Connection cable

Double-click the BlackBerry Desktop Software icon to launch the program. If you haven’t installed the program, you can do so from the CD that came with your device, or by downloading the latest version from BlackBerry’s website.
