Saving sms texts from lg tu550

How do I save mobile messages on my lg tu550 to my pc? I've loaded the disc that comes with the phone but only allows contacts to be sincronized and altered. The heading in the "LG Phone Manager" help menu states:" LG Phone Manager Overview
The LG Phone Manager program allows you to manage multimedia files such as picture, movie and sound files, contacts, mobile messages, etc. from your mobile phone using your PC.
"...yet I see no way to access the "mobile messages" folder. The only other way I can see of saving important text messages is typing them all out manually...150 pages of them! Please help?

    Yes, I have the same problem for LG KP220. How can I view and edit my sms using PC?

    Yep, I put a fair bit of work into this and I can't figure it out.

    The LG "PC Suite" software that's bundled with the phone is awful, and doesn't seem to provide any access to e-mail or SMS messages.

    The LG "PC Suite 2" is better, but will not recognise the TU550.

    The excellent third-party BitPim software ( doesn't "recognise" any TU series phones, but it does allow access to the phone "filesystem". However, I can't find the emails or SMS messages in the file system - they be encoding/encrytped in some way.

    So... I'm stumped. LG isn't bad hardware, but their support is VERY ordinary.

The solution is a bit convoluted and tedious, but it works.
SMS format messages can't be e-mailed. Therefore, they need to be converted to Multi-Media format by inserting an image, sound file, video file, but not a symbol, after which they can be e-mailed.
However, original SMS transmission details including recipient/source, date and time do not appear to be preserved when the SMS is first prepared for forwarding and attaching a MM file, prior to sending as an e-mail. Therefore, either a manual record of the original SMS details can be kept, or the forwarding SMS edited with those details and the MM file insert, prior to e-mailing.

How do i transfer text messages from lg kc910 to my pc? I cannot find the option on the pc suie

To transfer data from your phone to computer, you can try some data backup softwares, and I think it can be easier with an android assistant tool,
you can save a lot of time to transfer or backup text messages, contacts, photos, and other media files like videos, music files.

How to e-mail SMS messages from an LG Tu550 mobile phone

I personally haven't seen a way to backup messages other than by e-mailing them to yourself. (foward them to your email)

Most people believe that if they could save their messages onto their memory card on their phone, could save a ton of space. However, not possible.
