  1. Om, I thought you were done with the iPhone. Still in denial I see.

  2. Nah, I am using it on a off-and-on basis. i have four phones: a samsung for sprint, a n95, a curve and an iphone. for strictly personal calls i use iphone – attached to an AT&T plan with awesome deal on calls to my parents in India. for work its the samsung and curve. n95 is just a phone (to test). Hope that helps.

    I have to say one thing which is indeed awesome about iphone – calendar syncing with mac. though i find goosync another great service to sync with curve and n95.

  5. Hi Om,

    maybe you should try Synkia.com for your Nokia N95 or any other SyncML compatible mobile phone or device (in excess of 1 billion currently on the market). Synkia will back up and archive all your SMS messages online. By using Synkia’s service you can also synchronize address book information, tasks, notes. You can also easily migrate data from one device to another.

    Synkia’s SMS backup is performed as a onetime action of synchronization between a mobile phone and the Synkia server, together with all personal data. In the SMS section of Synkia’s web application users have a backup of all messages still present on their phones and an unlimited archive of all messages ever backed up with Synkia, no matter if they are still on the phone or not. Rich search functions allow the user to find a specific messages by key words, date sent or received and by the sender’s name.

    And as more people store digital contact data in multiple places, a server-based address book, such as Synkia’s, is able to unify your contacts and keep them all in sync. Synkia integrates this all into an online portal at http://www.Synkia.com

    Synkia’s solution supports a wide range of mobile devices including:

    • SyncML enabled phones, including models from Nokia, Samsung, Motorola, Sony Ericcson and others
    • Windows Mobile devices, devices such as BlackBerries and Palm Treos, via third party software

    Synkia ensures that data is up-to-date on every device and server.

  6. Apple Blog » Blog Archive » Syphone Backs Up SMS Messages From Your iPhone [Software] Monday, December 3, 2007

    [...] Joining the cacophony of OS X apps that only do one thing (but one thing really well), here’s the Syphone. It’s freeware, which is nice, and serves to back up your SMS messages so you can read them later. It even allows you to–if we’re reading this right–import messages to your phone, which means you can covertly inject a message into your buddy’s phone from his ex asking whether he wants to get back together. We’re probably reading that wrong. [Micromat via SMS Text News via Giga Om] [...]

  7. Syphone only works on a Mac OS. Is there any way I can back up my Iphone SMS messages to my PC? If anyone knows, please help :) Thanks!

  8. Om,
    Syphone is pretty cute for your own personal private archive. We make an SMS archiving app but instead of saving to your computer we save them online.

    Treasuremytext (the original SMS archive) saves people’s favorite SMS messages online. When saved, users can organise and share their messages. Our users from all over the world save messages simply by forwarding them to our standard rate mobile number: hassle free with no compatibility issues, it works on any phone, any network, anywhere.

    Until that is iPhone came along. The Treasuremytext Dev Team has iPhones and we quickly found we couldn’t use our own service with our iPhones as there was no way of forwarding messages. Of course the iPhone offers us a much better way to archive messages using EDGE or Wifi, so if we could build an iPhone app that lets iPhone users archive some or all messages to Treasuremytext, then we would make Treasuremytext better for iPhone users as it would be free to use (rather than the cost of the forwarded SMS).

    Treasuremytext 2 is now in beta, and the iPhone app is very nearly ready for launch. The beta is running with a Netherlands phone number right now but we are launching localized versions in UK, NL and USA soon.

    For invites to try out the new Treasuremytext see: http://beta.treasuremytext.com/Apps/WebObjects/SMS.woa/wa/goCreateAccount
