Question about RIM BlackBerry Storm 9530 Smartphone

4 Answers

How do I transfer messages off my blackberry? (storm 9530)

I want to save, in a randomly accessible format which allows standard text editing options, all the SMS and MMS messages from my Storm 9530.

Any ideas? Maybe a third party software?

Use your bb desktop software to make a backup onto your PC. It will make 2 files, with today's date, one a .cab which contains media files (eg photos you took) and the other, an .ipd contains encapsulated application data.

The contents of email are in in the .ipd file, in bare text html format. Suggest taking a copy of the .ipd file first, then open the copy in your favourite text editor. Notepad is OK; I use EditPad Lite. Then do a text search for "<html" (without the trailing ">") to find the first email message. You can copy the html between <html ...> and </html>, paste into a new text file, edit if you want, and save as SomeFileName.html, then open in your browser to see it.

Between each email is some binary info that would be used by the blackberry. Don't know how to decode this.

Some emails are text only. SMS messages are in there too - can search for the text you know is in one of them, to find them all together, the message itself is bare text.

I like helping people with blackberry, because I learn useful things for my own use. Just found this product, shareware for about US$20 after 30 day demo trial:

Handles IPD files.

This is a backup file (.ipd file) and isn't meant to be opened, you need to transfer it according to http://dotwhat.net/ipd/853/

Seems like your phone network is locked which needs to be unlocked. This can be done through Blackberry unlocking codes with IMEI. You can unlock your Blackberry Storm 9530 from them since they provide trusted and affordable codes to all their clients. i hope this would help.

Try to reset and upgrade your blackberry software after you sucesfull inserting blackberry 9530 unlock code. Some times your software still using default setting for old sim card after unlocked. That's a side effect when we do blackberry unlocking process.

I have an unlocked blackberry storm with tmobile service, and all of a sudden i get absolutely no service. It says SOS in the top right corner. Everything else on the phone works besides the mobile...


I think you entered wrong blackberry storm 9530 unlock code and your phone on hardlock state. You only have one option left to fix that, bring your blackberry phone to nearest local mobile repair shop and asking them to doing cable unlock. You will not need any blackberry unlock code again after that process.

Downloading Text Messages on my Blackberry Storm


No, you can't do this. The BlackBerry stores your text messages in a database file that isn't compatible with anything other than itself. The only way to get your texts off of the device (in any kind of read-able format), is to forward them to another phone.
