    Hey guys,

    Do know of any good SMS backup services? I just want to save my SMS and MMS to a simple file. Or XML or something searchable.

    On my Z30, I used SMS Backup, and it saved it all to XML and photos in folders.

    On my Motion, I've tried SMS Backup & Restore. But MMS weren't saved, and the XML wasn't nicely formatted. I tried SMS Backup + but you have to link it to Gmail. And Gmail functional supposedly was severed last week. I tried Super Backup, but MMS doesn't seem to be saving.

    Any suggestions?

    If you simply back up to your Google account (it's an options in settings --> Backup/Restore) that SHOULD back up your text messages. At least that's the way it works on a "normal" Android device.

    Since its BlackBerry though, you might want to try backing up using a 3rd party app such as Helium. I have always done the latter with my BlackBerry devices so I can't say for certain if the Google backup will work or not.

    I think do have it backed up via Google. But does that give me a searched file? I don't want tk create a backup for the sake of reloading old texts. I want to do it so I can start fresh, but have a searchable file on my computer for possible reference.
