“Hi, I would like to get hold of my old iPhone 3GS text messages. I know that one can backup iPhone SMS when syncing with iTunes as iTunes would backup all sorts of iPhone data. However, the caveat in that is that I cannot use the iTunes backups in order to view my iPhone data. What I am interested is to have access to my old iPhone SMS text messages and be able to read them on my PC – is this possible at all.
