  • Selectively export your SMS / iMessages with someone or export them all in batch.
  • Use the search bar to quickly target the chat with someone.
  • For information security, DearMob will only load your SMS when there is a backup file of your iPhone on the computer.
  • If you have ever backed up with iTunes or other software, DearMob will automatically load your SMS messages. If there is no backup file, DearMob will make a backup first. And that is why it's slow when loading SMS for the first time.
