    I basically have too many texts and its bogging down whenever I open them up. Is there any way I can back up my old conversations?

    I use MyBackupPro. Works great.

    MyBackup Pro - Android app on AppBrain

    FYI.....the stock HTC messaging app bogs down like crazy. It's pathetic. Use Handcent and you wont have that problem.

    I use two different applications, both are called SMS Backup.

    One has a gray folder with a yellow envelope. This one backs up your messages to an XML file on your SD Card and can restore the backup rather easily.

    The other one has a white postcard with a GMail icon. This one posts every SMS you send or receive to a label in your GMail.

    +1 for the 2nd sms backup.

    love having them go to gmail, cause I can search the whole history both from the gmail app on the phone, and from the web.
