Trying to figure out the max number of text messages that can be stored? I'd like to somehow be able to send an entire thread to a TXT file or back it up but I guess that's impossible. I need to save some stuff for legal court reasons.
I don't know if there's a limit of the number of messages or whether it just purges past a certain time (say 30 days). If anyone knows the exact details that would be great.
FYI that I have an HTC Arrive from Sprint. I've had it since the beginning of November this year. Great phone and love the Windows Phone OS, I just wish there were more configuration options on it.

As far as backing up, there's no easy way to do it. I work at a Sprint store; I'll try to remember to see if the Cellebrite machine will back up the texts to a flash drive.

What you could do is spend $10 bucks here to unlock your Arrive: ChevronWP7 Labs
Then go here: [APP]simply 100% BACKUP your phone RESTORE over ZUNE- not for CUSTOM ROMs like DFT) - xda-developers
And use this program that forces the Zune backup process so you can make daily or what have you backups.
The backups themselves are uniquely tied to your phone and are a complete image of the entire btw. In other words, every app, message, and settings is stored as a backup and were you to restore it to that backup, it'll be exactly as you left it.
