    An app called SMS Backup will backup all your texts to your Gmail account.

    Sorry I should have said I want to be able to save individual text messages rather that all of them. On my previous HTC phone you could save individual messages to a folder but I can't seem to be able to do this on the Hero.

    If it's only a few messages, then as an emergency measure you should be able to select all of the text in the message, then copy and paste into a text file or email.

    Hi, to be able to save a specific mesage on your HTC Hero, you must download a particular application from Google Playstore/Android Market (whichever you have). The phone itself dowsn't have capability to save it unless there is an application installed on your phone. It is best to contact the developer of the application for its function and compatibility, since I beleive that any applications from Google playstore is not developed by HTC.

    Thanks!
