Getting text messages from cell phone to computer?

I am using an LG Rumor cell phone and have a few months of text message conversations stored.  Is there any way I can transfer the text message archice to my computer to archive the conversations.  I know that I can forward each individual text message to my email address but doing that several hundred times is a major pain...

Re: Getting text messages from cell phone to computer?

Hello DennisRunkle, this phone unfortunately was not designed with this function in mind, and you may be best suited to transfer them as you had been. Going forward, if you find this to be an important feature, you will be pleased to discover that many smartphones do have this as an available option. Android smartphones have many free applications available which can backup your text to an sms folder in your gmail account, or to your memory card. Thank you for posting, please let me know if this helps answer your question, Chris

Will I be able to transfer current text messages on my LG Rumor to a newer phone?

No, this type of phone does not give an option to do this, but many smartphones like Android, Blackberry, iPhone, and Windows do give some options to backup, restore, and migrate.

So my only option to retain my text message conversations is one-at-a-freaking time forwarding to my email every individual 140-character piece of each text...

S**cks to be me...

Thanks for the confirmation of my technology shortcomings...

I do realize that it may be a somewhat drawn out process, I apologize for not having an easier way available to archive your SMS.
