A few weeks ago my iPhone randomly decided to stop saving photos taken with its camera. It would act like it was taking a photo, but it wouldn’t actually save the photo to its internal photo file system. I didn’t realize this until I had taken a few dozen photos of my dad and me golfing in Connecticut, so I was pretty bummed. Since then I’ve been wanting to do a full restore to see if that would fix it, but I was afraid of doing that because I didn’t want to lose all my SMS conversations.
Enter Syphone. This little Mac utility will retrieve SMS threads from your iPhone and allow you to save them as PDF, txt, or XML files. It worked exactly as it claimed on the first try. (Reason #231297 why I am happy I switched from M$ to Mac.) I’m in the process of restoring my iPhone now.
