    I have a bunch of texts that I'd really like to export to a text file. Is there any way to do this WITHOUT jailbreaking?

    what the hell?

    Syphone is what you want...see Weasel's post. It works great but my only problem with it was it didn't see all the current texts I had. For some reason when I went to export them, the latest date for my girlfriend was 12/27 when we text almost daily but other people who I just sent a message to showed up.

    Oh well, saved and moved on.

    I have thousands of text messages. It'd take forever to try to take pictures of all of them. Plus if you pull the info from the phone you can search, copy-paste, etc.

    I have months of texts from a single person that I'd like to print. That won't work too well. :)

    That rocks Weasel. Thanks!

    It looks like Syphone doesn't works with 2.2. I wanted to backup my texts before going to 3.0.

    Anyone know of another program, without jailbreaking, that will do this?
