Take a look here: Backing up text messages on iPhone 3GS.

There seem to be several options available. Some with clear directions.

iTunes will backup everything on the iPhone, including SMS messages and contacts.
In iTunes, with the iPhone selected on the left, click the Info tab and make sure Contact syncing is enabled.

Hi,

For the IPhone 5's it took me awhile to figure out how to save the text messages because after a day or so, I noticed they were deleting on their own. The trick I figured out was: (1) hold your finger down on the text message you wish to save until you see a short black bar pop up with one of the options saying "copy"..(2) then back out of your text message and open up you email icon (mine was comcast). (3) Then when you email thing is opened, click on compose,type in your email address. (4) In the message box, tap the screen till the black bar appears and click on paste.

 

Basically what your doing is, copying and pasting from your (sms) text message box to your email. The only problem I have encountered with this method was, the text message after they appear in your (computer), email, the messages do not say who they are from. The email will show it was sent from you to your email but not from so and so to you, etc...but at least you can save them this way, print them out if you desire and make your cheat sheet notes/comments on them.
