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

Try this.  You will backup to your SD card then restore to yournew phone with the same SD card.

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).
