Re: Copy sms to computer

You can back up your messages using ovi suite pr pc suite. You can also save your sms's by exporting it as a file to your computer using e. g. Pc suites communication centre which is a feature within Pc suite.

When you connect your phone to computer using Nokia Pc suite, you should be able to view all folders within the C-centre and from there you can export your messages or import previous saved once.

You can download Ovi suite from here: Ovi suite

 

You can download Nokia Pc suite from here: Nokia PC suite

 

I've just started to use Ovi suite with my new E7, so I don't know too much about that software, but you can back up your messages at least with it.

 

Nokia PC suite works with your device and has the communication centre which is easy to use. If you have a computer which is a bit older or slow, I suggest Pc suite as it seems to run a bit better and lighter.

 

You find the exe files to download on the bottom of the page on both sites.

 

When you have installed pc suite, you run it and connect your phone using e.g usb cable which is the best option. Open the Communication centre and all folders in your messaging app on your phone should show. You can from there read all your messages and export them to your computer.

 

You can also make a back up with content copier. You can back up contacts etc which is nice to have if anything should go wrong.

Re: Copy sms to computer

With the OVI Suite you may use the Sync function also.. Connect the phone to PC..In the OVI Suite.. click on the Envelope Icon.. Then goto Sync-->Sync Now-->Messages..Once the sync completes you will see all the messages in the OVI Suite..

Re: Copy sms to computer

No problem Yvehia. Glad I could help you! :smileyhappy:

Ovi suite is more recent and whats going to be the main software. Pc suite is slowly getting phased out, however, you should be able to use pc suite as long as you have it on your computer. It might not get many new updates or new features, but you can use it for what you have used it for now.

As alternative you can try http://www.bloove.com , it allows to backup and export your sms in comma separated values format via simple web interface. You can even copy them from Nokia to Android smartphone.
