    Hi, I'm looking to find a way to transfer text messages from my iphone to a PC (windows). I have not modded my phone at all. I did download IPhoneBrowser, but could not find the file containing the text messages. Does there happen to be a program that is similar to Syphone that works with windows? If not, what would be the other options? I don't know much of anything about jailbreak and would prefer to mod the phone as little as possible. Just looking for a quick/simple way for saving texts. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Thanks for the help. I downloaded and installed SQLite Expert Personal and I'm not sure what to do next. I hooked up the phone to the PC and used IPhoneBrowser to try to find any files to open, but not sure which. I tried opening the file "iTunesDB" in SQLite which did not work. How would I go about finding the database and extracting the text messages from the phone to save them on the PC? Thanks again.

    SMSD v0.8 has an option to backup text messages to mail. You could do that and download them to your computer

    You just simply dont have access to the phone's files if you dont jailbreak it. The only think u can do is sync with itunes before u restore the phone to back up ur data
