Default Saving all SMS from a single person at once?

Please Login to Remove!


Is there a way to save all the SMS involving a single person?

What I've done so far is search their name and tediously scroll over each message (sent and received) and saved it. Obviously, it's quite time-consuming. I know there's a "delete all prior" so I'm wondering is there's something similar in reverse.

I delete all that I don't want saved then I use Missing Sync on my Mac to back it up. This way I can view it later, time stamp and all. I can delete them if I want from there also. I have some that date back 2 yrs.

You can press Alt-S in your message list to get all of your SMS messages, or use the Search feature (from the menu) to find just SMS from a certain person.

Then hold down the CAP key and scroll to select multiple messages, then press Menu -> Save Messages.
