    Try Handcent. It's free and should get the job done. Go to the thread you want, open it up and "long press" on the messages you want to keep and the option will come up to lock them. Lock everything you want to keep and then hit the back button. Get back to the page where all the threads are listed and "long press" on the name where you're looking to delete messages. A popup will come with options to delete and force delete. Select force delete, and there should be a check box with the option to delete locked messages. Make sure it's NOT checked and hit delete. Everything will go except what was locked.

    Thanks for telling me about Handsent. Its cool and all, and it does have some other options, but it still doesn't give me the option to lock a message on me Moment. I still really need some way to save some texts and delete all the rest. Please help! My phone is having major problems because its choking to death with way too many texts. Most of the texts are junk, but I have to save some and I need to delete the rest to free up the memory on my phone. Please are there any other ideas?

    like kbear said use handcent, long press the message you want to lock. The lock option is the fist one on the list.

    I have run handcent since I got my phone and never noticed that. I checked it and as the others have said above me, a long press will bring up a menu and one of the options is to lock the message. I tried it and it works.

    I believe you can lock certain messages even with the stock messaging app that comes with the moment, atleast in 2.1 you can. Works the same way as described above, just long press and it should be the 1st option in the pop-up menu.

    pushing in & holding on a "message", does allow the lock option...
