1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    i have an old moto droid that no longer has an active account, so is basically just a paperweight right now. it has text messages that i would like to copy to a computer if possible. since it is not active, i don't have a way to download any apps that would facilitate this process, so i am looking for an alternative. i can easily access and copy photos/videos, but i can't figure out where the sms are housed. am i simply missing them? or are they inaccessible without an app?
    i appreciate any guidance provided.

    Welcome to Droid Forums. I am sorry to say I do not know if you can do it without the use of an app, I am thinking you can not though. Someone else will have to chime in with a more definitive answer.

    Hello and welcome!

    I am not sure on an answer either - I know there are "SMS backup" apps but I am not sure where you would find them...I hope you find a solution tho!

    I read somewhere that a youtube video or other format of some file copied off a sim card and not supported hosed up a users android so bad they at first got two new phones until they figured it out. Be careful is all.
