Backing up sms on pc

Hi guys. It's been some weeks since I started to look for a way to archive the sms I have on my cell in the pc. I found out two softwares which seems to accomplish the work, ksms and kmobiletools, but unfortunatly it seems my cell is not completely supported and I can do nothing. My cell is a Sony Ericsson z1010. Do you know if there is any other possible solution (except from writing them down manually of course )?
Thanks for any help.

No, wait. I maybe explained the wrong way. I would like to transfer sms from the cell to the pc. My cell is able to store only a small number of sms, so I would like to keep them elsewhere. I'm trying to do this via bluetooth, but it seems these softwares don't support my cell.

I'd try gammu. It has the option of using a pretty generic AT command set which works fine with my SE K700i. It does take a bit of playing around but it's a step in the right direction. If the CLI isn't your thing then you could try Wammu which is a GTK GUI but it does have all the options that the CLI version has. Might be harder to get your phone working.
