I highly recommend the free app from the Google Play Store "Backup to Gmail". this app will create folders in your Gmail email for MMS, SMS, and your Call Logs, and then automatically sync each of these to your Gmail. You can import your SMS, MMS, and even your call logs into any new Android device directly from your Gmail. Using this app in parallel with the amazing Mighty Text app gives me the confidence to delete text/photo strings from my Android device, because I know they are backed in my Gmail. And - when I want to find something in particular, from any device (tablet, phone, desktop) I just go to my Gmail and search for it, i.e. "SMS John Stevens", or "MMS John Stevens" etc. I can also open the relative folder in my Gmail and scan through for specific messages. These are stored in "conversations" by default, but can be changed to individual messages based on date/time. Again, having both these apps on your device is amazing.
