I am a BlackBerry 10 user wanting to change phone numbers but I am curious if it will delete all my current texts. I know it may delete my voicemails but it doesn't say anything about texts.

I don't think it would. However to be extra safe you can back up your text messages using something like SMS backup & restore. :)

The answer is no, your current text messages are stored on your phone. Use the Blackberry Link software to back up your device if you want to be sure. The app mentioned above will only work for Android.
