Once an SMS message is received by your phone, it resides on your phone in the Messages folder (if you have it set up to do so) or just the Text Messages folder. That's as close to having it in device memory as you're going to get. You can't move the messages to a different location on your phone.
What you can do is do frequent data backups with BlackBerry Desktop Software, which will save the messages in an .ipd file on your PC. You can then open them with a program that reads .ipd files (but I don't know the name of any offhand). Clearing them from your phone and/or your SIM card could then be done and you'd still have your messages saved.
Let us know if that helps you.
