If you create a lot of SMS messages on your Android mobile device and would like to delete then but need to keep backup copies. An Android application called SMS to Text might be able to help you sort them out.
The neat little SMS to Text app allows you to transfer all your SMS messages into a text file which can then be downloaded and stored somewhere safe. Once installed you can set the application to filter saved SMS messages by contact, date, incoming or outgoing phone number for easy export and archiving.
SMS to Text is available now to download from the Android Market for free and should help you sort those SMS once and for all without having to sacrifice any to the waste basket.
