    I want to save some of my SMS message onto the PC, because it is very important for me. I want to back up them for later viewing.
    Can somebody gives some useful suggestion? I will appreciate that.

    I would recommend Bitpim for this as it is widely the most accepted tool to do this kind of stuff however it may have some issues with your cell phone firmware.

    Depending on your phone, software may be provided by the manufacturer to do this. I know for sure samsung pc suite can do this and i think also nokia.

    If you are using any company mobile PC suit is their with that model so from that you can connect that with PC then after you can get the back up from mobile to PC for the SMS also.

    If you have a windows mobile phone I suggest Spb Backup, it does backup your sms and a lot more (if not everything residing in the phone)

    As far as I know there is no way to backup SMS without installing additional software, so if you want to save those beloved SMS messages, you'll need to be willing to consider some software options.

    I strongly recommend that you use "Apolsoft Android SMS Transfer", because I just purchased, I feel very good.
    I encountered similar problems, this software really solved my problem, thank you.

    Use iTunes backup for this. Instead of just syncing, try to force a backup in iTunes. Right click on the phone under "Devices" on the left-hand side of the iTunes window, and then click "Back Up".
