Export SMS as text file

[ Edited ]

Hi, I know ovi suite can export sms and stuff into a backup file but I need the sms exported as plain text into a txt or csv file. I found no option to do this in ovi suite :smileysad: Please can you add the possibility to export sms text and maybe some info about the sms (date, sender/ receiver)? I remember this was already possible in some of Nokia's old tools before ovi suite was launched. Help is really appreciated!

Re: Export SMS as text file

Tru to use this app to export sms as vmg from ovi backup file (*.nbu) : http://sourceforge.net/projects/nbuexplorer/

Then use this app to convert VMG to other formats.

Thanks but this is more a request to the ovi suite product manager to put this as "feature" request to the backlog.

They may read this but they won't respond, please read this: /t5/Discussions-Guidelines/Guidelines-read-these-first/m-p/1#M2

 

Hopefully you'll get your answer in first few paragraphs, i asked you to contact Nokia directly if you want to say this to Nokia personally as you won't get any official response on this thread.

 

Good Luck.

Well, occasionally we do drop by here and read the forum :-)

 

Anyway, what you were originally requesting is in our "features to do" -list.

 

Thanks,

Brilliant, one of the key functions I miss in OVI compared to PC Suite.

Re: Export SMS as text file

I just want to add my voice to the chorus: the simple, integrated export of SMS messages was one of the reasons I stuck with Nokia instead of jumping to Android. Please (re)include this feature !

Re: Export SMS as text file

Export SMS and contacts was a standard feature in Nokia PC Suite. I don't understand why Nokia skipped this feature in OVI suite. A big mistake I think.

Hi,

 

I was very concerned by this topic too and I never seen the result of your "features to do" -list. There is a solution today?

 

Thank you for your help.
