Hi i'm about to update the other halfs HD2 and she wants to keep all her old text messages, can they be saved onto the pc then re installed, if so were are they kept on the phone
Your best bet is to sign up for Microsoft MyPhone (see here
) - you can then backup/sync all the mesages, contacts, etc. on the phone. Once you've done the update, re-install MyPhone again (unless the update already includes it - some ROMs do) and sync everything back to the phone.
Hope that helps,
(There's also a program called PPCPimBackup - get it from http://www.dotfred.net
- that does pretty much the same thing; it creates a backup of messages, contacts, call log, etc. that you can save on the storage card and then restore after the update. ONLY ONE PROBLEM......sometimes
there are problems when restoring the SMS messages from the backup, especially when later versions of the HTC threaded messaging are being used.....use PPCPimBackup to backup/restore everything EXCEPT the SMS messages and use MS MyPhone for those.....)
