“My iPhone 4S is kind of out of control and I’m thinking of just cleaning house with a global reset, but I’ve had a few really great exchanges that I would like to archive as a text file. Does anyone know if this can be done, or how to do it? Is there a tool that makes it easy?”
The above text is extracted from a post and this user want to know whether it is possible to export iPhone messages to PC. Perhaps most people have the same question. As to this issue, I just want to give you a definite answer: yes, of course you can do it.
In my last article, I told you how to transfer all photos from iPhone to Windows. But this issue is quite different from the photo problem, because you cannot copy your messages directly to PC, plus, with iTunes or iCloud, you can just backup messages but cannot view them, let alone archive them as a file. So to solve this problem, we still need the help of iFonebox, a professional iOS data backup and recovery tool. (full review about iFonebox)
How to export iPhone messages to Win7 with iFonebox?
Download and install it. There is free trial before you download it. Plus, Mac version is also available.
Double-click on iFonebox and run the program.
There are two options here. You can choose recover from iOS device directly and of course, if you have synced your iPhone to iTunes, to recover from iTunes backup is also a great choice. After that, this program will scan your iPhone automatically.
Select and export messages you want to preserve. The main superiority of iFonebox over other iOS data recovery software is that, it allows you to preview and select the messages you want to export as a file. Pretty considerate. BTW, the deleted messages will also be here and if you want to recover them, just do it with iFonebox.
iFonebox is a pretty functional and powerful data recovery tool. With it, not only messages can be exported but also contacts, photos, reminders, etc can be transferred to PC archived as files. Pretty convenient and easy.
