I've been doing some searching lately on this issue and I haven't found much useful information.
I have been steadily increasing my maximum messages per conversation thread limit in the stock app settings from 200 once I get close to the max. I have a thread with someone that I don't want to delete messages from and I currently have the max set to 1000 which I found out is as high as I can set it and that thread is sitting at 980 right now.
I know there is no way to make it unlimited or a higher limit than 1000 without a market app but what will happen when I reach the 1000 message limit? Will I not be able to send/receive messages with that person at all or will it open a new thread so I would have 2 instances of that contact in my messaging app with separate threads?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks
