Here's my workaround for saving the conversations which has worked fantastically. Install an SMS backup app on your phone which backs up SMS to your Gmail. I use SMS Backup+ [https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.zegoggles.smssync] but there's a couple others that work as well. After configuring everything, your SMS and MMS messages will be backed up from your phone to your Gmail account in a nice conversation view. You can set a filter if you like so that they are automatically marked as read so your inbox doesn't fill up with messages you've already read on your phone.
