    I want to be able to save Android SMS text messages off of my Android. Is there any way I can do that? I have over 10000 sms in this database. Thanks!

    Personally, I use SMS Backup + because it's linked to your Google account. You log in with your Google account and it uploads all of your SMS and MMS messages, even call logs if necessary. It also allows you to set automatic backups.

    Install SMS Backup and Restore, backup texts, copy the resulting file too your PC or "share" the file to dropbox.

    I second SMS Backup+. It's one of the first app that I always install.

    Incoming SMSes are backed-up almost immediately to the cloud (your Gmail account). You can access the SMSes from anywhere like it was an email. There is also a restore function, although I have never tried it. Especially useful when an iPhone user (my wife) sends me a contact, but I can't directly import it on my phone (encoding problem?). So I just go to Gmail, and import it from there.

    If you have multi-SIM, you can even consolidate your SMSes from different devices to the same account.

    you may want to check out MYSMS and AirDroid.

    mysms/airdroid allows you to send/receive sms without touching your phone. it could be in your pocket.

    although airdroid offers additional functionalities. you can nearly do everything over wi-fi. no wires needed.
