Mmm, still you should be able to have more than 75,000 full texts. It worked fine at whatever it was before though. Even doubling it to 150,000 would mean a 30MB text database which is still isn't too big.

I thought I was the only one who did this for nostalgia sake

You know how I know that there's a bunch of nerds who haven't dated much on this forum?
Referring to ones who value these stupid texts or maybe I need to be more romantic so i can value these texts too? As of right now there is nothing of value in the texts with my wife
I save them using an app when flashing a new ROM but meh I could care less if lost them all

Does iOS have an SMS Backup to Gmail app? I know Android has SMS Backup+ and I use it - haven't lost a message since Summer 2010. I have deleted texts twice since then..had upwards of 50k in a thread last time.

I feel very sorry for your wife then. For me, the texts remind me of the narrative. It's got our fights, our highs, discussing trips we want to take, things we want to do...

Yeah it might be a little teenager-like (even though I don't apologize for it) but they still mean something for me. Words from a girl I care about very much.

No need to feel for sorry anyone. Especially over something as insipid as saving texts.
I'm not a high school girl nor am I a preteen boy who has his first GF ever.
I'm passed the stage of "OMG OMG someone of the opposite sex texted me"
That's my view on it anyway. But like I said I do back up my texts and 75k would last me 3 to 4 phone upgrades(assuming I upgrade every 2 years)
