    I have some important txt messages I need to keep is there a way I can back up txt messages from one iPhone to another or do I just get a new SIM card and when I get home on my wifi just forward the txt messages from one phone to another?

    Backup the old iPhone with itunes.
    Plug the new iPhone to itunes and select restore from backup.
    It's been that simple forever with all iphones.

    Yes, you can reset it to wipe everything clean. And then restore your backup to it.
