Where are SMS/Text messages stored?

Anyone know what folder the Diamond stores it's text messages? I'd like to try and sync it with my Funambol account as the notes folder.

I believe it is in the windows folder...pim.vol

Almost 100% Sure

in fact I think contacts, email and that kind of stuff is the same file

So then it's all stored in a file and not a folder? Cause with funambol I can select a folder to sync, but not a file.

There's a program on XDA in the Development and Hacking forum that copies pim.vol to internal storage/storage card (sorry, I don't remember the name so you'll have to search for pim.vol there). You could use that to move it to another folder that is synced. Extra steps, but would work.

Re: Where are SMS/Text messages stored?

You know I'm thinking that surely there's a reg hack that will change the default location of the pim.vol file to Internal Storage-root as opposed to the device-root.
