    Default Any app that will delete all but a set number of texts

    I've searched and come up with nothing, I've seen alot of apps that will delete all texts older than two weeks, all texts from certain people, but I need help finding one that will keep old texts but maybe delete all but the 50 or so most recent (doesnt have to be 50 just an example). That way it wont delete someone you hadnt talked to in awhile but your most frequent contacts wont slow down. Any suggestions?

    sms backup & restore was just updated to backup selected conversations. You'll have to backup the conversations onto the sdcard, delete your texts then restore the backup.

    It's a bit of a work around but it should do the job.

    Or just mark the texts that you want to keep around as locked. Then when you delete all text messages you can opt out of deleting saved items. Not exactly what you want, I know, but maybe another option to consider.
