I do not have an internet phone....just a regular cell phone with texting. I want to archive my text mssgs...is there a way to do that...either to a card I stick in the phone to to my pc?
I would suggest you first contact your cell phone service provider for advice related to your specific phone.
Secondly, you can do this on your own by downloading software from the Internet to act as an interface. Below is an example. However, I'm not familiar with this product, so don't take it as an endorsement. Also, some of the software that is out there only works with certain phone models. To my knowledge, there isn't one single way to do this that will work for all phones.
Thirdly, there are a number of videos you can find on YouTube about this subject by using their search function. But, again, applicability depends on your phone.

I have verizon cell service and texting and no internet. I can forward a text on to my email address and it is only considered texting. I just input my email address instead of a phone number in the to field so maybe your cell provider works the same way with texting.
I can also send back from my email as text. For verizon in the to field for just plain text you can use firstname.lastname@example.org and if you want to attach a photo then you use email@example.com. I know that you can also do this with AT&T service both ways, just need to now the @ part for AT&T because I have sent from email to a friends phone on AT&T that has texting and she has sent back to my email as text. I would thing other major carries can do this also. Mary
lookup the model. maybe someone makes a usb data transfer cable? nowadays they're in the box when you buy the phone.
search the cell manufacturer or verizon forums.
