Default Memory Question ? Txt Limits

Please Login to Remove!

I have noticed that my Pearl doesn't keep txt messages
for ever in the same way that my regular phone does.

Is there a limit to the length of time a message is valid,
or is there some setting to prevent the messages being
deleted after a given period of time.

This has become a little irritating as I had taken to texting
my expenses to the BB, so I could save them and enter them
up on the train home !

Any thoughts or other help gratefully received.

Thanks in advance.

you didn't say how fast you're losing them, so you might try

Open messages folder > Menu > Options > General Options > Keep Messages > set to what ever you want.
