the screen on my droid 2 just stopped working it powers on but then the scrren has a white line that flickers across it i have VERY important text messages saved on it and do not know how to get them off i do not know if when i saved them they are saved to my sd card or not i got it to come on for a few minutes but not able to use my backup assistant at all i have heard that if you have gmail activated on ur phone-which i do- you can access certain things from it can someone plz help me????
I don't have a smart phone but any important text I want to save I send them right to my email for safe keeping on the computer so something to think about for future reference. Mary
i dont even know how to do that lol im trying to recover the messages that were on the phone i have already gotten a replacement phone but it is not activated yet i just dont know how to get the messages already saved on the droid that doesnt work anymore
Well when you get a working phone any new important texts that come in you want save you just hit forward and put your email address in the to field and send and it goes to your email. If you want to send back from email to phone then you use email@example.com. You have to do this before the phone dies. I think you are out of luck getting the texts back unless you did this before hand. Take it to a verizon store and maybe they can get them back. If they were that important they should have been backed up to begin with. Mary
There are applications in the Android Market for backing up your text messages to either the SD card or an email address.
Just search "SMS backup" on the Android Market.
