    I'd like to do a factory reset to see if it'll help with a battery issue, but I'd like to save some texts. Is there a way to back these up without just manually copying and pasting the contents?

    I'm afraid that unless there's an HTC software solution like iTunes or Samsung Kies to backup the contents on your phone, you're out of luck as you can only do this one by one on the stock SMS app. Maybe a 3rd party SMS app could do this, though.

    You can also sync SMS to an Exchange account if you have one, and that way, your messages would be saved alongside your e-mails.

    Also, there are apps in the Play Store that claim to be able to backup and sync your SMS to the cloud, although I've not used any of these, so I can't vouch for any of them.

    You can do a backup/restore from the stock messaging app.

    Thank you!!! I was looking for something like this, only in the wrong spot. I was looking under settings for the specific threads I wanted to save. Thanks again!

    Make sure to move that file to a safe place. If you happen to factory reset your phone and you saved that file to internal memory it will be wiped.

    You can also use HTC Backup for that, as well as MMS, contacts, etc.

    Does HTC backup also backup MMS?

    I find even with 3rd party apps, MMS backup is not really supported.

    Sms backup and restore available in the play store if you ever need a manufacturer independent solution. E.g. When upgrading phones

    Super Backup in Playstore can backup SMS with MMS...It can also backup your calendar entries, if you have not been saving them in Gmail. Super Backup also allows you to email the files to your email.

    To save text messages, we can use Coolmuster Android Assistant to backup android phone text messages to computer.
    Looks sketchy. Poor ratings and having to pay alot more than some Android apps will do for free. Pass.
