You will need to download a software called mobile phone tools to get this done. You will also need a data cable or a bluetooth dongle on your PC so that you can connect the phone.
After downloading and installing the above software follow these steps to transfer the msgs to PC.
Open Mobile Phone Tools
Press F3 (for transferring messages from outbox) or Press F4 (for transferring from inbox)
Select messages you want to transfer
Choose format/destination. I would recommend txt format as it is real quick.

Hope that helped,

    Hello there. I think updating your software or downloading MPT 5 from the motorola phone tools should fix the issue. The good news is that your phone is not in the list of unsupported phones, I have checked
    I have also checked the version compatibility and its compatible with Vista
    The simplest thing you can do is the run the program in compatibility mode for Windows XP. This will help you run it n Vista. To do this Right-click on the MPT4 exe file(not the shortcut) and click properties and then under the compatibilty tab choose "run this program in cpompatibility mode for Windows Xp" Once the program opens all you have to do is to use the update feature so that you can upgrade to MPT5 thats compatible with both vista and ur phone. After that follow the procedure I have mentioned in my previous post and transfer messages to your phone. Feel free to post back if you need more help.

    Hope I helped,

    There's a better way to download pics to your computer. When you connect your phone through USB cable you will see it as a drive in My Computer. Open it go to the pics folder and get them. I remember doing this with my E398. It should probably work for yours too.

I want to download my texts and pictures to my computer

You won't be able on that phone you can of course e-mail yourself all the incoming and outgoing text messages then from your e-mail you can copy / paste them in a folder you make that will let you know what's in it (ex: TM short for text messages) then after that you can put that folder or it's contents on a SD card or USB card , so there you have it forever.

Incoming text only... no outgoing

My software update didn't work properly and it messed up my text messages.
I solved this problem by downloading the Motorola Software Update (MSU) from Motorola's website at
1. Select your country/Region
2. Select carrier
3. Select Phone model
4. Click Orange arrow to the right of the model type
5. Select purchase month and year (If out of warranty select month and date within one year of today's date or it won't work) Then click Check Warranty Status
6. Follow "Click here" link to previous page
7. Select box right above Download Update link
8. Click Download update link
9. Follow directions for Download

From there you will have Motorola Software Update on your computer.
With your phone turned off, hold ^ # and the red power key at the same time until it prompts you to connect to your computer using USB cord.
Let the computer do it's thing and you're good to go!

Recover deleted text messages

You may try this mobile recovery software which helped me before. You can download trial for free

Please be noted that your phone memory should show as a drive letter in your explorer, if not, you need to take out your memory card and connect using a card reader, or plug-in to card reader slot if there's any on your computer.
