There is an option within the SMS options to "leave SMS on SIM card" - untick this and the device memory should have enough space to hold a few thousand messages - whereas the SIM is limited to 20 or so.

BlackBerry Desktop Software for PC can help you backup SMS to computer directly.  If you want to transfer sms from blackberry to android, I just found a program called VeryAndroid SMS Backup can help. It is a smart andriod sms backup software that can copy and backup sms on Android phone to computer, restore sms backup file to any android phone, and also send messages or chat with a friend on computer directly, exactly the same as that you do on your android phone.

It can help you:
 - Copy and backup SMS from Anroid phone to computer.
 - Restore SMS to android phone any time.
 - Send SMS & SMS Chat on computer directly.
 - Transfer SMS to android phone from other phones (iPhone, Windows Mobile, Nokia, Blackberry etc).
 - View SMS messages in threading mode on computer.

 

Good luck.

is this possible with BB10? and is seems to me that it will be saved to the storage of the device, is it possible to save it on the media card/external storage?

No. SMS is part of the security protected data on BB devices. As such, it is not natively eligible to be placed onto the Media Card (which has a much lower security protection level than does the internal AppMemory area). There are 3rd party apps (e.g., Ultimate Backup) that can backup some data to a Media Card (which may or may not include SMS...I do not know specifically), but that indeed is a backup...no ability for interaction with the data, but merely there as the source of a later restore.

 

Good luck!
