backup text messages / conversations on Sony Erricon Android phone

Hi,
I have just got a new Android phone, but I want to backup my text messages and I can't find anyway of doing it. The Sony software that I installed on the computer does not seem to have any facility to backup text messages either.

Is there a native way of doing this and if not is there a good recommended third party tool?
I then want to load them into my new phone when is also Sony Erricson (I'm in the UK)

Many thanks

I agree it would be nice to have it built in.

The same developer has a similar app for your call log (I believe it is call log backup and restore).
