    Does anyone know if there is a way to move the kept text messages that are in the phone to a program in order to capture all the messages in a doc?

    you have to copy and paste every individual message one at a time.

    if you are jailbroken there may be a jailbreak app but I'm not 100% sure on this

    If you're jailbroken you can SSH into your phone and copy out the text messages database, or just backup your phone and find the text messages database backup and export them out with proper ( it's free ) software.

    hey you dont need to jailbreak, the app your looking for it iphone explorer. do a google search and youll get it immediately.

    look in the root "/" directory for /private then> /var>mobile>library

    sms.db is the file that contains all your sms messages. to get it out simply drag and drop onto desktop. then get sqlite3 database browser (another quick google search *its on sourceforge*) and open that file and all your sms messages in there on one of the tabs, in one of the drop downs :P just copy and paste into a notepad.

    hope that works and helpd ya.
