    Default Editing SMS in bulk

    My girlfriend changed her phone number, and I want to keep our text message thread, so I want to edit all the old texts so that they came from her new number (or have this thread "live" under her new number instead of her old one). Any good apps for that? The ones I have found either don't work in bulk (I want to keep 1000+ texts), or they have problems with threads (they will change the phone number, but it still lives under the old number's thread!).

    Alternatively, if I could backup my texts to a computer and manually edit them before restoring, that'd work too.

    Default Re: Editing SMS in bulk

    Looks like I found my own solution. Titanium Backup and/or SMS Backup & Restore create xml backups of your texts, which you can then edit before reimporting. TY all! (Also, isn't it messed up that Android doesn't just give you the ability to do this?)
