I see there is a pay program called Noki. Does anyone know of a free program to read and extract old text messages I've backed up?
My wife thinks I've lost all her treasured messages from the kids!
Have tried NbuExplorer which shows photos but not messages,for me anyhow!
Thanks.

That's the program that does the backup! But it can't read it.Only backup/restore.

Tried that Speedy.Pretty useless!It just shows strings of numbers.The photos show up ok.
Have installed trial of Noki.It shows, when you hover the cursor over the message string,what the message says.
It's meant to save/convert 50 messages but doesn't want to save any!
I'll keep playing,thanks.
