f = codecs.open('E:/Others/listSMS.txt', 'w', 'utf8') # open file in UTF8
for i in msg:
f.write(box.address(i))
f.write('\n')
f.write(ctime(box.time(i))) # convert seconds in a string
f.write('\n')
f.write(box.content(i))
f.write('\n')
print i +"th SMS backed up"
f.close()
 
appuifw.note(u'All SMS are backed up!', "info")
