Default Samsumg Galaxy S3 (i747) How to save text messages

The only option I have to save a text message, is to copy it to the SIM card. When a text message is saved to the SIM card, where or how do you retrieve the message, without having to use a card reader?

Hi I am going to move this to the S3 part of the forum, it will have more people familiar with this phone seeing it.

First off there is no reader for a Sim Card for the general user. That would be an SD Card reader. The best thing to do would be to use an app like SMS Backup and Restore to back up the SMS to the SD. Then if you need to read them just restore them.
