    Ideas on how to print out Text Messages

    I have a bunch of text messages saved on my phone and was wondering if there is a way to print them for a legal case I am involved in. Sprint is my carrier in case that makes any difference. I am having a bunch of issues with my Q and want to do the latest software update but can not lose these messages. If anyone has any way to help me out I would really appreciate it! Thank you so much..

    God I wish there was a way. But from the little research I have done, there is no way to print them out or even save them on your computer. I hope you find a way cause I have some on mine I would like to keep and Im afraid they are going to get deleted.

    A court order might get Sprint to release them but you'll have a hard time otherwise.

    Unfortunatly even with documents directly from Sprint said text messages will do you no good in court. It cant be proven that the individual in question sent said messages, therefore they are not admissible even as a supporting document.

    Good luck, though :)

    bummer indeed... like i said before with pretty much everybody having access to Outlook Express i am amazed there is hardly any software, only reason i can think of is that the Q might have had a target group of business users who more often then not (i guess) do have the full-blown Outlook.

    (+ of course Windows Mobile and Outlook = Micro$oft = they want you to use their product and pay:}

    screen capture would give pix of text

    One could use the built-in but hidden screen capture program.

    does work, but very involved since you have to copy/move the screen shot file because it keeps overwriting the previous one.

    Emailing does not work since you lose the date and time stamp.
