    I personally like to re-read my texts with people from time to time. But my texting with people goes as for back as August. I was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible (and if so how) to save your text messages on your computer or something so that I can delete them from my phone. It's also an annoyance when people ask to see my phone and read my texts. If only I could just put a passcode on SmS...

    You can back up your SMS. Just go to 'private/var/mobile/library/SMS' and back up the 'sms.db' file.

    Also, you CAN put a passcode on your SMS, lol. Just install Lockdown from Cydia. And as I wrote this I just realised you haven't jailbroken, lol. You should man, it's well worth it

    So if you don't jailbreak, there is no way you back up your text and definitely no way you can put a passcode on your SMS.

    Well man I've heard the pros and cons of jailbreaking and as you can see I have not.
    Personally I will not jailbreak unless it does not void my warranty and currently it would.
    Hopefully sometime this year we will reach the light at the end of the tunnel and jailbreaking will not void the warranty!

    Dude, you can just restore, and there's your warranty! Back again, lol.

    I may just Jailbreak mine then.. I just don't really know how and I don't want to mess my phone up. Will I lose all my current texts if I do jailbreak it?

    No you will not lose anything if you jailbreak now. there's many tutorials to help you with it.
