How do I save text messages from lumia 800

I can not find a way to save My text messages from My lumia 800,

syncing the phone with zune doesn't seem to do it.

My old n97 mini would sync them with nokia suite.

Am I just missing some thing?

Any help would be appreciated

You're not  missing anything, this functionality is currently not available for WP phones.

If there is a message that you really need to keep you can go to the "Messaging" application and open that message.  Then when its open hold your finger on the message until a menu saying "Copy" comes up. 

 

Choose "Copy" and then go into Microsoft Word or Microsoft Onenote and paste it in there then upload to Skydrive or use Microsoft Onenote to sync the message data that you copied from Onenote on your phone to Onenote on your computer if you have that installed.

Re: How do I save text messages from lumia 800

It's pretty surprising really that this important feature doesn't exist: it seems like Nokia is going backwards in so many ways with the Lumia phones.  We really need full support with Nokia Suite - who cares about the operating system, it's made by Nokia and should use Nokia software!

Re: How do I save text messages from lumia 800

you are so right. I cannot believe the loss of useful functionality I've experienced with my Lumia 800. can't sort texts by sender, can't mark as unread, now I can't back them up ? can't create playlists on the go, have to do them on a computer via Zune... can't create contact groups easily by ticking a whole series of contacts, have to laboriously search and return, search and return... I hope Nokia are listening, this phone's a very backward step

Re: How do I save text messages from lumia 800

oh and not to mention I couldn't restore from my N8 backup so I lost all the contact groups I already had setup, hence my need to recreate them... which is just too laborious to attempt due not only the above but also due to seeing every contact in every email and facebook account in there as well as all my phone numbers ! AAARRRGGGHH !!!
