How do you save a text thread from being deleted off your phone?

I want to save a specific text thread on my phone. Due to the fact that my phone on stores 90 days worth of texts this conversation will be deleted soon. How do I keep it on my phone?

Are you using the stock messaging app, Verizon Messages, or another messaging app?  Each may have a different way of saving messages - long press a message in the thread, or long press the thread itself and see what aoptions you have.

Using Verizon Messages, I see an option to "Save Messages" - you may be able to "lock" messages preventing deletion too.  Other third party apps allow you to download and save messages to a file you can store on your computer.
