How do I save my text history before doing a factory reset?

I may try a factory reset before I return my lousy S4 because the WiFi doesn't work and Verizon knows it but likes my data charges.

I know from experience that when you do a factory reset you lose your text message history.

Anyway I can save my texts somewhere and then after the reset or if I get a new Andriod, which is most likely, return them to my phone?

Thanks, Dave

Yes, if you use a text backup app from the Play Store, like SMS Backup & Restore.
