    Hi all,

    I want to transfer all my SMS messages from my phone to PC. Googling showed me a number of companies/apps that seem very suspect. Is there a process that anyone here can vouch for? Preferably free.

    Cheers!

    You'll need to export them as an XML.

    Thanks. Next question... how? I don't see an option within the messaging menu to export.

    You'll need to google that :\ I don't remember how I got it done, but I think it was with app that was mostly marketed as a 'disk cleanup' type app.

    Yes, I did google it but all I found were processes involving apps that looked suspect, hence my post here.

    Can you list the ones you've found? I should be able to identify by name which one I used, if you've happened to come by it.

    I've used this without problem. It can back up your phone call history and texts to your gmail account
