    Hey guys,

    I've been having issues with my Desire, just got a quick question ... how do I back up my SMS's so I can restore them after a factory reset.

    And which is the best way to factory reset the phone.. from the menu or by a combination of soft keys??

    Cheers
    Jackie

    Search the Market for SMS Backup. The app by Michele Valentini is good - I've used it before.

    Mybackup Pro.

    Backs up your phone and has a 1 click restore; even has scheduled backups.

    Ive used SMSbackup+ and have fond it to be incredibly handy. It will even auto back up.

    Good luck and maybe you could post the list of apps you have and someone will spot the bad app?

    After factory reset?

    If you're not using a custom rooted Rom, I would suggest its a hardware fault
