Download one of several sms backup apps. I use SMS Backup & Restore for Android. It allows me to Backup to SD card, Dropbox or Google Drive. The backup file can be copied to the computer the if you wanted as well, and read from any device.
other solutions is try Android manger program which can help you transfer SMS messages from Android to PC
directly. it help you move contacts, photos, videos and more...
