    Talking How to backup Skype texting history and contacts

    Beautiful and simple, this is Skype built especially for the iPad. Call, video call, or instant message anyone on Skype. Plus, if you add a little Skype Credit, call landines and mobiles at really low rates.

    Many people want to know how you backup Skype texting history, recorded voice and contacts. Now here’s a brief tutorial:

    You Need:

    » iPad
    » i-FunBox (Official download site: i-FunBox | File Manager, Browser, Explorer, Transfer Tool for iPhone, iPad & iPod )
    » SQLite Database Viewer

    • Open iFunBox

    • Click “User Applications”, then “Skype”

    • Then copy “main.db” to PC or drag “main.db” to PC directly:

    • Using the main.db file select ‘messages’ from the ‘Table’ drop down menu and you will be able to see all of the messages currently on your iPad

    • Export your texting history, recorded voice or contacts to .csv:

    From the SQLite Database Browser’s File menu, choose Export> Table to CSV file. Save the resulting comma-delimited file, and open it using your spreadsheet of choice.

    • Done

    If you have any other good ideas about this, please let me know. Thank you so much ╭(╯3╰)╮!!

    ...or you could just install Skype for iOS on your iPad.
