How do I backup and restore SMS Messages?

Is it possible to move/backup txt/sms message from my phone to my PC? I have Android 2.2 If this could be done via a usb cable, that would be ideal.

Use Backup & Restore application on your mobile. Take the Backup of your messages only. Its going to store in SDCard/data/backup/.sbf.

You can copy this file into your PC using a Cable or using Bluetooth.

Anyways I prefer SMS Backup+ which syncs your SMS, Call Logs, etc with your gmail.

Thanks, is a .sbf file a text file which can be opened on a standard pc to see the messages? –  oshirowanen Oct 28 '11 at 9:19
    
It is not a txt file.Its a binary file. As far as I know there are some editors available to open this file. –  X10MiniPro Oct 28 '11 at 9:35
