    I had an older LG and I was able to send/forward text or pictures to my email, don't see why any other phone wouldn't... Unless you don't have the appropriate messaging plan for this then I would think you're SOL :2cool:

    Text Message File

    I tried finding the answer, in this thread, to a question I have but I wasn't successful. I am switching out an old Q9C for a new one. The old one has Windows 6.0 and the new one has 6.1. I have already copied the pim.vol file to transfer my contacts but I don't know which file stores my text messages. Would someone please tell me which file, or files, I need to copy to the new phone in order to keep those messages.

    Install dashwire or Myphone, both back up text messages.
    Install them on your phone.

    But can you get them back on the phone? I thought DW and MyPhone saved it on the pc...in order to get it back to phone, does it have to be re-sent? I personally save it on DW, don't need it on the phone, but other people wanted it on the phone...

    Oops, I use my phone and there is a option to resend or restore to phone on the site. Never tried.

    Tried installing the Jeyo Mobile Extender 2.5 for Smartphone for my Moto Q and it said it is not a valid CE app so it didn't work. Did I download the wrong one?

    mobile extender integrates into outlook on your PC and when you sync your phone texts go to a seperate 'personal folder' in outlook

    Ok got it installed. 3800 text messages on the phone now how do I save them as a file that I can open later in Office or Open Office?

    EDIT: I don't have Outlook Express as I never use it, FWIW I don't have regular Outlook either. IIRC I installed this specifically as it was stated you didn't need either program in order to view and save texts.

    i cant speak for IIRC since i dont have it but when i use it in outlook the texts are viewed directly in outlook
    you dont open them in word or open office
    they are saved and viewed in the program you synced them to

    if you are using IIRC ill have to leave you at that since i never used it
    perhaps an email to the developers to see how to read them in that program

    haha sorry IIRC is short hand for "if I recall correctly". lol. I was hoping there was a way to save the texts as a file. Is this not possible?

    I want to erase the texts on my phone as I am running out of space. I want to save the texts permanently. The program I am viewing my texts in is a trial program. I am afraid if I wipe my phone and the trial expires I will not be able to access my texts unless I buy the program. So you can see this is something I want to avoid. I also don't want to buy a program just to get a computer back-up of my texts.

    oh ha sorry...

    since you dont use outlook you might want to look in to jeyo mobile companion and not extender
    companion is a standalone app for the PC where as extender is integrated with outlook
    i believe companion can export to a file
