    Not legally, and this forum does not support piracy. I believe the devs' site is the only place you can purchase it.

    They have a trial version that will allow you to at least see the interface and should let you determine if it will be compatible with the beta. Check the Downloads section of their site for details on what it covers.

    I will say I have PhoneView, which is the Mac equivalent, and it's worth way more than the the $24.95 charged. It backs up things in an accessible way, unlike iTunes, and unlike iTunes I don't have to worry about it eating my data. I use it regularly.

    PhoneView is $19.95 right now. I just bought it a couple of days ago. It's pretty good.

    Thank you! Wasn't looking to download it ilegally. Just was looking for a cheaper price. I just saw the other post for 19.95.

    Thank you, Jerry

    I have a question related to iPhone texts and wondered if it'd be okay to ask it here, it's only a simple one.

    Does the iPhone save every text you've had with a person? For example in 2 years would I be able to scroll up a conversation to the very first text with that person (going past the possibly thousands in between)?.

    Yes it does, until you hit the 75,000 ceiling of SMS/MMS messages.

    Thanks for the reply :). Also 75k SMS messages is a ridiculous amount! I had sent approximately 35k on my old Sony Ericsson over the course of 2 years. I text way less now as well!

    There was a guy on here over the weekend looking to get all his SMS/MMS off of his iPhone because it was at the limit and wouldn't accept anymore incoming messages. He said that he had that many on there between him and his girlfriend.

    Another vote for Phoneview. I have been a happy user of it for a while now.

    Currently it's being offered in the last MUPromo Bundle for $49.99 in case you need of any of the other apps included.

    I have many of the apps myself and am kicking myself for just recently buying Fantastical. I'm considering the bundle for Data Rescue 3 alone.

    Hi,

    Thanks for all the help. I bought Touch Copy 11 and it works perfect.

    Thanks, Jerry
