    I can't say how many it can hold. But I know I have it set to keep all for 6 months. There's deffinatly a ton of them in the msg folder. There's an option to keep them forever, so I would imagine it would just use the internal memory until it's full. I have 20mb memory free. That's alot of saved msgs.

    So would you say that I could save well over a thousand if I kept a decent amount of internal memory?

    your messages are saved whenever you backup, you you really could keep them all forever. but the number you have on your phone would depend on type (mms/sms) and size (hi = small, the preamble of the constitution = big) so it's all dependant, also, other apps and pics and music all use memory so that would effect the number too.

    if it's really important, you can forward any msg to an email addy and keep every one you get.
    The above commentary is for entertainment purposes only. If this was actual joke the tone you just heard would have been followed by emergency response information. It's supposed to be fun people.

    Maybe. I recieve well over 30 emails a day and around 50 msgs. I have them for 6 months at a time. So 80 msgs x 30 days a month = 2400

    Wow thats great. If I could hold 2400 texts or even 1000 without deleting thats awesome. I hate deleting my inbox.
