    Is there a way that I can save two long-running SMS threads in my Treo 650 to my laptop's harddrive?

    I've tried highlighting all the text in one, but when I attept copying to the clipboard an error message pops up saying I've exceeded the device's memory.

    Is there a backup file for this already on my laptop?

    You can increase the clipboard file limit from 1kb up to 64kb using a program called Clip Pro. I've not used it myself though.

    You could then paste it into Docs to Go and transfer it to your laptop as a Word Document.

    There is a file stored on the desktop computer when you do a Hotsync. I'm not at my sync computer right now so I can't tell you the exact file name or the folder, but it is something like the backup folder under the palm folder and the file is called Messages_data_pdb. There is a thread somewhere on Treocentral that has the file name. The only problem is that file is raw and the actual messages have to be sorted out of the formatting commenads, but it does save the stuff sent back and forth in a string of messages. Good Luck!

    I have had saved a few long SMS tread by doing MULTIPLE "copy and paste's". This may be the most tedious way, but at the same time it's quite rudimentary and simple
