Archive all messages from your BlackBerry® into your Mac!

MyTexts for BlackBerry Pro is the first application that extracts your text messages to store them where you want!
You can export your messages into a set of nice-looking web pages (HTML), that can be opened and easily printed with any browser (e.g. Safari or Mozilla Firefox).
Alternatively, if you are an expert user, you can also choose the XML format, to import your texts into a custom application or a database!

● Extracts texts from BlackBerry® Desktop Manager backups!
● More than SMS messages! With MyTexts for BlackBerry Pro you can read your multimedia messages (MMS) too, obtaining pictures, photos, videos and all other attachments!
● Extracts contacts from the Address Book, with the Pro version, saving in vCard (supported by nearly all device, phone and application) or XML files.
● Supports backup generated by Desktop Manager for Mac (.bbb files) and Windows (.ipd files)!
● Save your messages into a set of HTML pages or in a XML file!
● Easy to use!

To extract your messages and contacts, you need to have a unencrypted backup file, generated by BlackBerry® Desktop Manager for Mac or Windows.
The phone does not need to be connected to the computer to use this application.

MyTexts for BlackBerry Pro has been tested with recent versions of Desktop Manager and BlackBerry® OS (4.6, 5.0, 6.0, 7.0 and 7.1).
BlackBerry® OS 4.5 and lower are not officially supported and thus may not work with MyTexts for BlackBerry Pro.
Multimedia messages (MMS) can be extracted only from backups of devices running BlackBerry® OS 6.0, 7.0 or higher.
The application supports SMS messages encoded with UCS-2 as well (containing non-latin characters).
Encrypted backup files are not supported by this application.

Version 1.0.2
Review by Laurlexis

Fool proof - This is an extremely straightforward, easy to use app which does exactly what it says: backs up your texts in a readable format (either HTML or Excel). I find the price to be a bit high for such a simple function, but I guess they have a monopoly since there are no other apps that can do this and programs sold online cost around $50.00. I was personally willing to spend the $8.99 since BlackBerry backs up texts in an unreadable .bbb format which makes the act of backing up texts (i.e. the ability to access and read them on your computer) null and void. I recommend this is if this is important to you. It delivers.

Version 1.2
Review by victoriahz

Not exactly the solution I was looking for - Pluses Looks good… it shows the conversation in chronological order and clearly shows who's "talking" so you can clearly follow the conversation. Minuses It stores the files by date versus by user. So I have 12 folders for 2011, one for each month, in each of these folders is a file for each date that there were text messages. I was hoping to have one file per contact the way my phone stores it. Overall, it will work if you are desparate like I am for some sort of back up but it is not THE solution. Sigh… Why is it so hard to find an SMS back up solution. Anyway, good luck!
