Is there a way to delete a message history off your phone but still retain/save it somewhere for historical purposes (like you need to go back and pick out a piece of evidence that was said)? The message file size on my phone is 1.8GB, but I think I found the problem. I have one message string to one person that's never been deleted; so far I've scrolled back ("Load Earlier Messages") all the way to Jul '13 and there's more. However, I really need to save this message chain. How can I get it off the phone to attempt to clear up some of this 1.8GB of Messages but keep this entire chain for access later? I haven't confirmed, and don't know to, that this one chain is the culprit of the large file size but seems logical since it's full of pics and everything else. ...and I guess it's safe to assume when you have a string this long, even though you have to hit the Load Earlier Messages button, all this data is still actually on the phone?
