SMS Cloud Backup Keeps your Messages Safe

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.

You can find more information in the application thread.

Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles.
