View, save and backup your iPhone text messages.

Overview

Syphone is a freeware Mac utility for use with the Apple\'s iPhone. The program installs on your Mac and does not alter the iPhone in any way. This application allows you to view, save, and back up your SMS messages. With Syphone you can now archive and view SMS conversations, including those that have been deleted from the iPhone.

What's new in Syphone

Version 0.99b11:
  • Connecting and disconnecting a phone without syncing with iTunes no longer causes a crash.
  • iPhones with the same name but different serial numbers are now available in the UI and work as expected.
  • Resizing the Syphone window no longer causes odd splash screen behavior.
  • The helper application should no longer enter a CPU-intensive state when not syncing or otherwise doing work.

Since it looks like Syphone is no longer being supported, I looked around for some other software. Decipher TextMessage (deciphertools.com) was really easy to use and helped me get my messages fast. Hope this helps someone!

Syphone is outdated. It does not work with iPhoneOS3. Micromat does not intend to further development om this software.

Well, since iTunes 8.1, it no longer syncs properly. I'm interested in developing a competing product that actually works, but I'd love feedback on features missing in Syphone that you'd like to see added to a new one. Please post your suggestions here or on Versiontracker.com. Thanks.

Working for me - Mac OS X 10.5.6, iPhone 2.2 Syphone is great, and it still works here. I wish it had a feature to export ALL messages, rather tahn one number at a time, but I'm glad we've got something.

Works perfectly! Just remember to TURN OFF "launch helper application" in the Preferences. If it wasn't for this hickup, it woulda been 5 stars

Excellent! And free! I initially had the "No iPhones found" error that appears common. I followed the advice on the related forum on the Micromat site, including unchecking "Run helper app in the background" in the preferences. I had to quit and restart several times, and I'm not sure exactly which fiddling did the trick, but eventually I launched the app and saw all my conversations, including the ones my daughter had deleted since my last sync. Fabulous! It is a delight to be able to easily and quickly generate a PDF of a year's worth of text messages.

Not that it's mentioned anywhere that it DOES work with Leopard beta 9A559, just letting you know that it doesn't. The main screen shows my name and number, but under that it states "No iPhones found!" Rats. Any tips?

Sorry, I spoke too soon. I tried one of the tips on the Micromat site and it works fine now. Thanks!

Syphone 0.99b9 was just posted at our website. This should resolve the crash on launch issue that you encountered. Enjoy! :)

We should have a new beta posted later today (Friday) that should address the crash at launch. Look for 0.99b9. Thanks!
