    Hello everyone. Just got my HTC Desire and I love it :)

    However, is there a way to save your SMS messages on to your PC? As a .txt or .csv file?

    Regards, Lamby

    I use SMS Backup to keep a copy of all my text messages on gmail. If you really wanted them as .txt I guess you'd be able to link them to a email program like Mail or Outlook and export them from there? but I've not bothered trying that.

    Having copies on gmail in better for me as they're searchable and availble online wherever I am, and kept in conversations too.

    Yeah, free app from Android Market, mine's 'SMS Backup 1.1.1 by Christoper Struder' It does it's own thing in the background, never bothers me and hasn't given me any problems at all.
