    I have never tried this or heard of it but theoretically it should work: If you have jailbroken your iPhone, use OpenSSH and Fugu to connect your iPhone to your computer. You should be able to find the SMS files somewhere and view them. Copy and paste should work for this.

    Doesn't look like it. You may be able to contact the developer to ask if there is one offered.

    Web application to export iPhone SMS to CSV or HTML - iphonesmsexport.com

    You should try this web-based application that automates the process of exporting the iPhone SMS database (sms.db) to something more practical, like a CSV file, ideal for spreadsheets, or HTML, for human reading.
    No jailbreak needed, no external downloads. It works with a file generated by iTunes at every sync/backup :)
