I wonder if the cheating site mod saw referrer links coming out if here and decided to come here and try to undermine BS trying to nail their WS.

That is the name of the folder which keeps the text messages. Open it with notepad or a similar program.
TextPad reads it just fine, you can download it for free. NotePad (on my Win 7 machine) didn't like the file I pulled from backup folder on a Mac...opened in TextPad, and worked fine. From there you can save as a different filetype if you'd prefer (.txt, .rtf, etc).

Also, set the View to word wrap, so it all stays on one page vertically. Otherwise you have to keep scrolling right and left while reading and it gets easy to lose your place.

Good to hear.

If you get paranoid in the future, there are pen shaped VARs that you can place in her purse on the trips.

Actually an alien opposite view point of the consistent bias around here can only be a good thing.

On a mac it should open in "TextEdit" by default.
The Macs version of NotePad.

Edit:

This is supposedly a Mac equivalent of TextPad which is only for Windows.

You might try Decipher TextMessage from Decipher Tools (Save text messages to your computer.). Yes, it costs money but it is fairly well done and makes it easy to go through them and see the conversations and any pictures that were sent. I use it to go through my kids texts (and now my wife's). Supposedly there is even the possibility of pulling back deleted texts since they are only soft-deleted initially.

THX I downloaded the free trial- that is sweet. So easy to use. I think I will buy it.

I tried it, and it's not too bad, and cheap too. I like the recover deleted messages function too. Currently I'm using



iPhone Backup Extractor for Windows and Mac

Deleted texts, yes. Deleted iMessages, no.
