Default Back up texts and read them?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a VZW Curve and was wondering if there was a way to back up your SMS messages to the computer in such a way that you could read them? I've got a few thousand messages in my device memory, and I'd like to clear it out to free up memory, but a few hundred of those messages I'd like to be able to back up and read (sentimental reasons).

I know about Desktop Manager, but it doesn't let you see what's in the backup file.
