Will PIM back up save my threaded text messages?

Hey guys,

I know before the rom update PIM backup would save and restore our text messages but now since we have threaded text messaging will it still be able to backup and restore our text messages after a hard reset? Thanks.

Re: Will PIM back up save my threaded text messages?

Yah it will.

But there is a problem with some people that are having their draft texts sent. So just be VERY careful about that. Just for safety delete all the texts in your draft folder before you use PIMbackup. Ive never had this problem but as far as Ive heard I think it happens when there are drafts saved when you do the PIM backup file. I dont save drafts and double check before I run PIMbackup just to make sure.

There is a thread somewhere on here that talks about this extensively. But as far as I understand that is whats causes that.

Just imagine what could get sent....A text you started to write to your girl when your all pissed off and decided not to send it when you were done. Then this happens and it gets sent...ehhhhhh


But all in all it definatly backs up the threaded texts. I have been using PIMbackup for a while now. Since my days with my apache and when wm6.1 was first ported on that months ago.

Re: Will PIM back up save my threaded text messages?

I would suggest that if you have that many texts use Dashwire.....although it will not send them back to the phone you at least have them saved.....plus it does pics and vids and contacts....contacts can be sync'd back to the phone...

Re: Will PIM back up save my threaded text messages?

i just did a hard reset then tried to restore the text messages but it didnt work out too well. For some of them it only restored the messages I sent and others it only restored the messages I received from my friends. Be cautious when trying to do this. =(

The same thing happens to me every time I try to restore. It will go through the process of putting them in order and grouping them by who sent them to me. But when I go into a thread there is only the messages that they sent me. I have to go to the Sent folder to see the texts that I sent them. I have tied disabling threaded SMS and then restoring and then re-enabling threaded, but i get the same issue. Any suggestions? Here is the reg edit that I am doing.
Code:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Setting s]
"SMSAvailable"=dword:1

0=old style
1=threaded style
