    My neighbor has an EVO and needs to get a large number of text messages from a certain person onto her computer. What is the best way to do it?

    Install the app "SMS Backup And Restore"

    use it to backup all texts.

    connect the phone to a computer, open the sms backup.xml file

    it will open as a table listing every number, name, time and date, and contents of the texts in order.

    this file contains all the texts so just save it to the computer and do whatever you want with the phone.
