I need a solution to backup and restore SMS and MMS messages from Sony Ericsson P910i to PC and most importantly from PC back to P910i again. I have been searching and testing dozens of softwares but with no success.

rind,

There is a CD with P910i, but there is a function for COMPLETE phone backup (not SMS backup or contacts backup).

Doesn't the complete backup also backup the sms and mms? Have you checked the sony-ericson site for updates and further software?

rindi,
Yes, it does. But it doesn't extract single messages back and forth between PC and phone.
I checked the latest update of the software and it it still the same.

For a backup solution it is generally better to backup everything anyway. Possibly you can edit or delete messages once they are on the PC.

I have tried Oxygen Phone Manager, but with no luck. Any program or so for such a job?

There may be some utilities around for Linux, but I'm not aware of windoze software for such tasks.
