Back in June we mentioned this free service that would automatically backup your SMS messages. Well they had some issues early on, and rather than provide a service that would not work for everyone, they pulled it for their BlackBerry clientele. The guys over there have been working incredibly hard to get this going again. And today, they went live with this great service… again.
If you have never heard of DexRex, I will briefly overview it, but only because I think it is a great service. If you are like me, there are several reasons that you might want to be able to access a copy of your SMS records. I get messages from my fiancee, friends and family(some of whom are no longer around) that are rather special to me. I am required to keep any SMS messages that are work related. And in general, I am a packrat and don’t like to throw things away 🙂
DexRex does all of this for you, automatically. No more selecting an entire text message, copying it, pasting it to an email and archiving it on my computer. Install a simple plugin, and lay back. Whenever you need access to your messages, log in to DexRex.com and you not only have an archive of every message, you can filter them by contact, search them, analyze who you have been talking to the most and so on.
This service is free, and available to anyone who wishes to participate. Just head over to www.dexrex.com/mobile on your mobile device to get started.
DexRex will also archive and manage all of your IM conversations through most if not all of the major Instant Messaging services, if you want them to that is!
