Need advice on how to solve your BlackBerry woes? Dear Berry is here to save the day.
Hello again readers! Dear Berry is here once again with a mailbag full of BlackBerry questions and woes. Today's question comes from a reader who asks:
I purchased a Q10 recently since I've been using BlackBerry for the past 4 years. Of course with the change of models. However, noticed that Q10 I'm unable to save sent & received text messages. This is an important feature that I need, please tell me that I can save important text messages.
With BlackBerry 10 there are a couple of options available for you to save sent and received text messages. First one, is sharing conversations from within the Text Message application. To do this, tap on an individual text message and then long press on the specific text which brings up the action menu. Here you can send via text, email, NFC, Bluetooth or to send to the Remember application. However that will only forward one part of the conversation (i.e. You can share the incoming or outgoing message but not the entire conversation) which means you would have to send each one separately. The other, is by connecting and backing up your device using BlackBerry Link.
My suggestion would be to use a third party application and below are a list of a few with the ability to backup, restore, and save your text messages. Hopefully this is an easier way and offers better functionality for your needs.
While I'm sure there are more SMS applications available, these are a few to help you get started.
See you next time!
