    Has anyone had any issues backing up text messages with PimBackup? I have text messages selected but it doesn't back anything up

    I believe, since Palm uses their own threaded SMS, they are using a different file, which I think is PalmVol.vol. MS threaded SMS uses, probably PIM.vol. PIM backup is probably backing up the MS file and not the Palm one. Why not just copy the file to your SD card?

    make a copy of the PalmMsgV001 file thats in your windows folder. that will be your SMS msgs.
    i had threaded sms on my 700wx and copied that file over to my 800w and all my sms messages are back.
    700WX -> 800W -> Touch Diamond -> Pre?

    That's the file!!! I remembered it used to be on the root, as it was on the 700wx. The only file I saw was PalmVol.vol. I didn't know they moved it.

    This may sound like a noob question, but I would like to know if I copy this file from the Treo 750 & transfer it to the the Treo Pro will it copy over my exisiting messages on the Pro??
