Using MPT to backup the SMS messages from your PHONE to your PC
MPT has a feature where it can copy the SMS Text Messages from your phone, to
your PC allowing you to save them or back them up to the PC.... However, you can
NOT write them from the PC to the Phone... i.e. you can not restore your SMS
Text Messages to the phone.
When it comes to MPT and SMS messages... use Menu ->
Recieve -> In Box... it presents you with a window showing folders... the
PHone's OUTBOX is displayed as SENT Messages in MPT... If the data wasn't read
from the phone, from that window you can do a Tools -> Send/Receive -> Retrieve
SMS... and it will read it in...
From there, you CAN export the "sent messages" to a plain text file on the PC... by doing FILE -> SAVE AS...
Of course, using MPT, you can also export the Inbox by doing a FILE -> Save
But MPT only exports the SELECTED messages... so you must select them ALL before
you do the save as...
Also, MPT will save every selected message as its own text file on the PC...
i.e. if you have 5 messages selected to save in MPT, it will make 5 individual
text files on the PC... Where as BitPim puts all in one text file...
