That is like saying my car is a Ford one

What HTC, one have you got as they sell many with different operating systems.
if it is a Android based phone then I use SMS back up and restore. it backs up your SMS messages to a folder in gmail.
If it is a windows phone then I am sorry, I have no idea.

I presume they mean they have the HTC one... Which is a phone called the HTC one.

One good way of doing it is to download 'Airdroid' and then open your browser and point it to what it tells you on the app screen.

You then see your contacts, pictures, videos and other device content, which you can download. It's a free and legitimate app.

It would let you copy and paste all the conversations. There are apps that backup your text messages to gmail too, and you can restore them back from gmail using the same app.

I would add SMSBackup+ to the list of great apps already given: it backs your texts up into a dedicated folder in your GMail, and then continues to do so on a schedule or as text messages come in. It also offers the ability to restore from that same backup, if you lose and replace or simply change your phone.

I know some people can be a bit picky on here, but it would help putting a better title on the thread like "Backing up text messages - HTC One" and then using a capital letter for the model.

It was fairly obvious from your question but some of the threads on here are a lot worse.

Mark.

That's why it's probably not a good idea to wrote posts with no capitalisation or punctuation what so ever. Just an uppercase O on One would have indicated you meant the name, rather than just the word one.

I note your post above doesn't have a single item of punctuation.

Amazing the affect of a bit of sloppy writing. Capitalising the "O" would have made all the difference.

Get off your high horse! The OP came for help not a lecture in punctuation or grammar. Jesus you act like a bloody 12 year old at times!

As regards to the opening poster, you can follow much of the advice other posts have said given it is somewhat simpler though I do believe HTC Sync should be able to transfer your messages across? Which network are you on? I know Vodafone and EE/Orange/T-mobile offer a transfer service free?

EDIT By transfer I mean you can go into the store and they will transfer all of your messages and data across for you using a machine.

Oops. Funnily enough I wrote effect then changed it to affect. But yes, effect is the noun.
In mitigation I note that affect is one of the commonest words searched in the Oxford Dictionary online.

Sadly we live in the age of the Text Message, another thirty or forty years and we'll be just grunting at each other.
