    I'm thinking of going from ATT to T-Mobile. Preserving old messages is important to me.

    What happens to the text messages when you put in a SIM card from a new carrier on BB10? Are they wiped away? Are they saved on the phone so don't get lost?

    Anyone able to help here? My guess is that you lose them. I might search duckduckgo since might be universal issue for all OS's.

    SMS are stored on your device, not the sim card.

    Thanks. That would mean that they would not be lost, correct? Have you done this before? Switch carriers and not lose texts?

    We're considering the same, so please report how it goes.

    As for texts, can't you just back them up, then restore if they're missing after changing carriers/SIMs?

    Don't know how to reliably backup texts. Any advice?

    SMS Backup is still in BBW, however, I haven't tried it myself.
