Between this MPT SMS feature, Bitpim, and all the P2K crap not working for V3C SMS download I'm just about ready to shoot myself. Been trying to get my txts off my phone for months now... just about ready to play some wall tennis with it.

Couldn't remember where the SMS export on MPT was, sorted again now.

Nice detailed help. I think it's a great phone but still clumsy in that it lacks SMS storage even if you've 1GB on SD. Grr. Aside from that it's good. I prefer it to the L7 I had, better size/shape and the rough metal keypad is best clamshelled out of the way.

worked well for my older motorola phone. There was no mail icon so I used the control+s and the from there got to copy and paste. Simplest explanation on the internet. Thanks

Wow -- thanks a lot!!! Still works 2 years after the last post! Not the control-S, but the icons, once I figured out what was what.
