Backing Up/Copying SMS Messages to Read On My Computer

I'd like to backup or copy some SMS/Text converstations that are currently stored on my phone. They should be ok until my next firmward upgrade, but I would like to make copies of them on my computer so that I could maybe read them in a text editor. Some of them are quite funny, so are good read over later for a laugh.

 

Anyway, for backing up my phone, I use SPB back, which makes a .exe  file on my MicroSD card...not something I can open in notebad and read easily. 

 

Does anyone know of a way to do what I would like to do?

 

Thx.

PPCPimbackup (freeware) just backs up contacts, SMS, tasks and calendar entries...individually.  Not sure if you can open the files though (I've never tried to).

The PIM Quick User Guide tells how to open the files on your computer.  Works very well.
