"I need to back up SMS on my iPhone to a computer. I searched many forums, but haven't found a way. Does anyone have an idea to help me back up iPhone SMS to PC? I'm waiting online for a solution. Your prompt advice will be much appreciated."

You must be talking about the problem that most iPhone users have ever come across, and it has happened to me too. At first, I tried iTunes, but it seemed to back up all the data to an unknown location on my computer. Then I searched the internet for the iTunes backup location and found the backup finally in the disk C of my computer. While, a new problem came to me again. I can't view the iTunes backup, they are shown in unreadable codes.

Now I strongly and formally recommend the powerful iOS data recovery and backup software to you. No matter for transferring data between iOS devices and the computer, for backing up data to PC, or for data recovery from iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices, the software is definitely a trust-worthy helper for you. 

The operation process about how to back up iPhone SMS to PC is very easy, just 4 steps. I have summarized my personal experience of using the software to back up iPhone text messages to PC and now I'll share it to you. See the guides below:

    Deleting a Text Message on your iPhone is like deleting a file on the computer. So when you delete a file on a computer, it gets transferred to the Trash. Hence you can recover it if you want or you can empty your trash so that the file is permanently deleted. But you still have ways to retrieve deleted text messages.

    When you delete a Text Message on an iPhone it just gets transferred to Trash. And when you sync your iPhone with iTunes, then it actually gets deleted.

    The reason why I am telling you all this is that this method works. Hence if you delete some text messages and sync your iPhone, you will never be able to get back those deleted text messages since iTunes will delete them permanently.

    iAny Manager is absolutely right about third party software to transfer iPhone data to computer. There are not loads but certainly enough for you to do the job. iTunes should be used only as a first level interface management software for your phone. It is not really the tool to be used for anything else.
