    I'm nearing nearing 10,000 texts on my phone and was thinking about deleting some as even Handcent seems to be a little laggy at opening now. I don't want to lose everything though. Anyway to get some kind of a backup? Preferably something in a text format I could just open in Notepad.

    There are several apps that backup your texts into a special folder on your Gmail account. VERY handy. Sounds difficult to setup, but it is snap and works very well.

    +1 I use SMS Backup and it stores everything in my Gmail. You can safely delete the texts on your phone and they stay safe and sound in Gmail.

    There is three of those in the market. Tried the one saying it saved on Gmail and it only allows a max of 200 to be backed up, it won't go back and save all my stuff. Am I doing something wrong?

    *Edit, I see now that I have to keep clicking it every time it reaches 200. This looks like it will do exactly what I wanted. Thanks!

    Cool! It will only back up 200 at a time but it will back them all up. So, when you look at them in Gmail, you'll only have 200 of the conversation but it will continue to back them up, you'll just have a new thread. :)
