I have a text conversation that goes back several days and is very, very long. Before I delete it there were a couple of pics sent to me that I want to save (I know, I should have saved them when I got them). The problem is there are probably a few thousand text messages within this conversation so scrolling back by swiping will take forever.

Is there any easier way to finding them? I also tried hooking my pre up to the computer and try searching for them that way but cant find them. Since I didn't save them yet they do not show up in the messaging folder.

Sidenote, it would be nice for some updates to the messaging app for navigation of long conversations.
