Keep text messages

I noticed a while ago that my blackberry automatically removes text messages after 1 month. At first I wasn't too bothered by this, but recently I was looking for a text that was older. I was able to get to it by restoring an earlier data archive from blackberry protect, but I was wondering if there was a way to keep them from being deleted in the first place.

Re: Keep text messages

Please help!


I have read the posted article but I do not have the field labelled "Days to keep Messages" on my Bold 9780. How do I prevent deletion of text messages?


Thank you.
