what backup file?
each time you sync to iTunes, a backup of data on the phone is made. The program mentioned can read those backup files to find your SMS messages. So to be more clear, it will only be able to see SMS messages since your last sync to iTunes.Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedJan 2, 2008 11:57 AM (in response to AngelaKae)Wish I could help out more, but I cannot.
However, a good question somebody may be able to answer here is, "Where are the Backups stored when you sync?"
I am not sure of the file stucture it may be making, but there may be a chance that they could be files you can read manually without the help of software. I just don't know (just depends on what a backup really looks like).Windows XP Pro
