    Has anyone had any experience (and luck) of copying their text messages from their Xperia to pc? I want to back up messages, not to restore to the phone but to save on my pc to free up some phone memory. I don't want to lose the messages and so I would like them to be in a readable word/text file on my computer.

    I've seen a few apps around but there are so many it's hard to knwo which would be best. 'Veryandroid sms backup' looked brilliant but it had very bad feedback so I don't want to risk downloading it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sms backup+ will backup to Gmail
    Sms backup and restore is what I use to back them up, does it as an xml file, can't tell you if it is readable on a pc though.

    Thank you. I will try the back up to G mail. I found an app that backs up but it does it to your sd card and as the xperia s doesn't have an sd card when I did the back up, I couldn't find the file on my pc where this got saved to.

    You can still view the built in sd card as you could any traditional sd card.

    Best app for this has got to be MyPhoneExplorer
