Briam from Mobilearchiving let us know that they just released a free application called SMS Backups. The application allows you to back up your entire SMS conversation including incoming and outgoing messages with contact name and number. You can pick up a free copy of the application by going to smsbackups.com .
Description from the developers:
The app is called SMS Backups and it forwards SMS text messages to email such as Gmail, an Exchange account, etc. The great advantage of doing so is that you’ve got a backup of your SMS text messages, and its easy to search SMS in Gmail or Outlook!
SMS Backups is pretty unique. Although there are a couple of other applications which forward sms to email they:
1) only forward incoming text messages. SMS Backups forwards both incoming and outgoing SMS text messages – so you get a backup of the whole chats you had with people, not just the received messages
2) SMS Backups lets you add labels to the email copy so its easy to file into the appropriate folder via Outlook’s rules, Gmail filters etc
3) the other apps only put in the mobile number in the email – but who remember numbers? SMS Backups adds the contact info to the email subject so you have both the number and the contact’s name making it easy to search for and filter SMS text messages.
You can find the SMS Backups at smsbackups.com – it’s a free download. Runs on all Blackberrys running OS 4.2 and later.
