Can anyone report what Android phones support SMSsync? So far I've confirmed Galaxy S. I initially thought it was in 2.3, but upgraded my LG-P500h to 2.3.3 but it does not support it.

I sync all my SMS to my Gmail account with the "Backup to Gmail" app. I have every SMS sent or received from 7 or 8 phones over the past 2 years all stored in the my Gmail.

GoSMS has an option to back up to SD and Email but I recently used an app called Desk SMS [I think] on my Desire that synced every SMS to email so that everytime I was texted, I also received an email with it. Uninstalled it as I was a bit tired of all the emails.  I might re-install it and just filter the email alerts to archive.

thanks for the offerings of alternative functions. Are you using these because your handsets do not support SMSsync or is it because you don't have an Exchange Server 2010 backend?

ps. It is not the retention of the SMS I'm interested in, it is the unified messaging solution that does not require an SMS gateway that is of interest.

I'd never heard of the option you describe. I try to avoid MS solutions where possible. They are too expensive for me to use at home without pirating them.

Note, this feature is an action within ActiveSync which only displays if both Exchange 2010 and the handset support it.

To use this on a LG Optimus One (P500h) you have to buy TouchDown which is $23.70 [not sure if that is NZ or USD], but it does work. Once enabled on phone and outlook restarted, I tested sending and recieving SMS from both OWA and Outlook 2010.
   


note: you have to synchonise the sent folder on the phone for SMS sending to work.

Additional note: by default, remote wipe on Touchdown does not wipe the phone, only the account in Touchdown (at least on my LG Optimus One)
