How to transfer text messages (SMS) from Nokia e71 to PC

I'm switching phones soon. Does anybody have any idea how I can save all my important text messages (SMS) from my Nokia e71 to my PC? I tried googling and nothing came up. Thanks!

Re: How to transfer text messages (SMS) from Nokia e71 to PC

u can try using pc suite : http://europe.nokia.com/pcsuite

 

download and install the application then u will have 3 different options:

 

1) export the messages to a single excel file

2) drag and drop the messages from the communication centre to the desktop

3) use the backup option to backup the messages and restore them to ur new nokia phone (not guaranteed to work all the time though)

if my post helped u out, please click the Star next to it to add some KUDOS to my name :smileyvery-happy:

Open Nokia PC Suite

Click on Messages

Click on File

Click on Import

 

Your messages will now be saved in the PC Suite until you delete them.

note: that should read as export rather than import since u want to get the messages from the phone to the PC :smileytongue:

Thats true, but once in the PC Suite all you have to do is open the message and copy/paste to note or word

u could do that but that means ur having to open each message individually and copy and paste to a text document

 

using the export option creates a single file automatically with all the details for the message : sender, time and date of message, message content
