SMS Cloud Backup Keeps your Messages Safe
Based on the popular and aesthetically pleasing Sense SDK, XDA member computerjunkie‘s SMS Cloud Backup is a very useful application to have if you often flash new ROMs to your Windows Mobile device.
Rather than creating a backup file on your phone’s fragile and easily lost microSD card, SMS Cloud Backup does exactly what it says on the tin; it creates a copy of your messages and sends the file to an email address of your choice, so that they can be saved or retrieved whenever you find it necessary.
Additional features include the option to send conversations as separate emails, to send the backup file as an attachment, to clear your SMS folders after the backup has been sent and to choose whether or not to send the backups immediately.
The app should work on Windows Mobile devices using .NET CF v3.5 or later.
