Just wondering what the maximum number of text (SMS) message the 8900 can store?

Typically an SMS of 160 character length takes 140 bytes of size. 8900 has 256 MB of memory.. after OS installation and multiple applications if you have around 100MB of space left, with that amount of space you can store approximately 750,000 of text messages.

However, you may have to set the message to stay forever and not expire after 30 days (default settings).
