How to Transfer iPhone SMS to PC/Mac

I have the iPhone 4 and I already lost all the messages my bf sent me and I don't want that to happen again. Is there anyway to copy my text messages from my iPhone to my Sony laptop, either through iTunes? Please I need help!

If you're using iTunes to manage the contents of your iPhone, you must know it that iTunes can automatically back up your iPhone data, including messages, when you sync with it, so that you can restore your iPhone to get back previous data if you lost it. Though you can't access or read the backup file, and you need to give up exiting data on your iPhone when you want to restore from it, it's also a way to back up your iPhone SMS. Well, there is also a way that you can directly copy your SMS from iPhone to PC or Mac. All you need is an iPhone SMS copier.
