SMS Text Messages

How do I save my text messages to my micro sd card all at once, or do I have to do it one by one? Please explain how to save text conversations to my card so I can later access them.

 

Also, on the other end of the spectrum, how do I delete all my SMS texts at one time? I can easily figure out how to do it one by one, but I have over 100 that I want to do all at one time.

 

Thanks.

Re: SMS Text Messages

You can't save your text messages to your sd card. 

 

You can delete all your sms messages by highlighting the date and click the menu key and select "Delete Prior."

Re: SMS Text Messages

Hmm, ok, I knew about the delete prior but I was hoping there were more ways to delete such as by date or person etc...

 

As for saving text messages, is there a way I can I save multiple text messages at a time to a folder so they aren't in my current text message list?

 

Maybe this will help you understand what I'm trying to do - I need to save some conversations for future reference but I don't want them cluttering up my inbox. I thought I could save them to a folder and then access them from there at a future time. Then, when I was done with these 40 or so texts, I could delete them.

 

Thanks for any input!

Re: SMS Text Messages

I think all you can do is "save" them.  They will go into the saved messages folder.  Then you can delete from the inbox and they're still in the saved folder.  Then you can delete them from there.

Re: SMS Text Messages

hi. Where do the saved messages go? I also want to keep them and am changing my phone (non BB), but cannot move those saved messages to my SIM card.

Help!

Hi and welcome to the forums! Smiley Happy

A couple of places for you to visit: Blackberry 101    Tips & Tricks

 

As John_Clark pointed out above, they are saved to the "Saved Messages" folder, homescreen-sms and mms-menu key-view saved messages.  I don't have any there to check myself, but perhaps you can copy/paste them into an email to yourself where you can save them until you get your new (non BB?) phone.

 

Happy to have you here! Smiley Very Happy

Perhaps you have accidentally hidden the folder.  Home screen-menu-show all

You can also open your email icon, then hit menu-options-general options-scroll down to SMS and Email inboxes: Separate.    Save any changes and see if that helps.  If you have changed themes and had that option set to theme controlled, that could explain why your sms icon is "missing."

 

Happy to have you here! Smiley Very Happy

Re: missing sms/mms icon

@JC - which of my suggestions did you try that did not work? Sometimes whether you see a separate sms icon is theme controlled. Try using a different theme. See if you sms icon then appears. Let us know. Smiley Happy
