About
I am not the original author of this program, it was created by computerjunkie. He graciously posted the source code when he stopped development, so I picked up where he left off. The original thread can be found here.

Cloud SMS Backup reads your SMS account and backs up the conversations by emailing them to an account of your choice. You can have them sent as separate emails each containing one of your conversations, or have all your conversations zipped up into one email. It also gives the options to empty your SMS account after backing up to prevent the slowdowns of having too many messages.

Requirements
This requires .NET CF 3.5.

Thanks go out to
computerjunkie for creating the original version
eboelzner for the sense UI
mohitsapru for the inspiration

Change Log
v1.2.1 8/22/10
  • Added support for localization. Will load a translation matching the devices language setting, and will fall back to English if it's unavailable. See below for instructions on how to create a translation.
  • Does not properly backup MMS messages yet, but will note that one was sent/received in the conversation.
  • Fixed another bug that caused backups to fail under certain circumstances
v1.2 8/21/10
  • First release by me.
  • Fixed several bugs that caused crashing.
  • Added option to send as one zip file.
  • Removed serialized backup file (since there was no way to restore from it). May be added back in a future version once restoring is complete.
  • Added option to save messages from the last three days when clearing SMS account after backup.
For past releases, see computerjunkie's original thread here.

Future Plans
  • Scheduling - automatically back up
  • MMS support - backup pics/videos that were sent
  • Restore - ability to restore from created backups
  • Have a suggestion? Let me know

Translations
Available languages
  • English (included)
  • Dutch (see attached nl.zip) Thanks mike2nl and LinusN
How to create a translation
  1. Download the attached en.ini file.
  2. Open in a text editor and translate everything after the '='. Do not change anything on the left side of the = or the translation will not work right.
  3. Save the file with a name based on the ISO 639-1 language code (ex. en.ini for English, de.ini for German, es.ini for Spanish, etc).
  4. Put in the application folder (\Program Files\CloudSMSBackup). The program will automatically use it if your device is set to that language.
Please post your translation if you create one so I can include it in the next release.

Hi,

I have a Samsung B7320. I installed .NET 3.5 CF and the app opens up alright. But I can't scroll through the UI or interact with the program at all. Am I missing something? Does it work with touchscreen equipped phones only?

Yes, it was designed for touchscreen phones. Adding support for non-touch devices shouldn't be hard, I just never thought of it before now

That'll be on my to do list for next release

And here the dutch translation from the en.ini = nl.ini


EDIT 1:
nl.ini changed bacause 2 mistakes.

EDIT 2:
test is done and it is working. Great function and please hold the development up.

EDIT 3:
two screenshots added. One before and one after the process.
The yellow marked range is something for the about button, i think.

Possible you can make a menu button (bottom - right) with
backup and about selection...

Thank you for the credit in the opening post and the app. That was very considerate of you.

I'll keep monitoring the thread because I love seeing the progress. Great job again!

In your error message i have found that:

Quote:

Er is een foutmelding beschikbaar voor deze uitzondering, maar deze kan niet worden weergegeven omdat deze berichten optioneel zijn, en momenteel niet zijn ge´nstalleerd op dit apparaat. Installeer NETCFv35.Messages.EN.wm.cab voor Windows Mobile...

dutch - Heb jij dit gedan?
wwe - Do you have done this?

Download the file and install it. Possible then you will have more details in the error message to help the OP.
