It’s not as straightforward as I think it should be to keep a copy of your text messages. There are all sorts of Apps that will backup your messages, and on an Android anyway, you should see a little email icon to forward a text message via email.
What type of phone do you have? And, do you want to just keep a special message here and there? or do you want to keep all messages?

Is it possible to save text messages to a file and print those text messages?
I have a LG420GHL_V10f and I can transfer pictures to my PC via bluetooth and I have a few text messages here and there that I would like to save and someone told me it is not possible to do that. Just wanted to get a second opinion.
Ah … that phone is not a smartphone, so I don’t know the procedure. It may be true that it is not possible.
I did find some tutorials on that phone at: http://tracfone.deviceanywhere…..id=2697308
I don’t see any info on saving or forwarding text messages. One way many people save their text messages is to take a screenshot of the ones they want – then you can transfer that like any other picture. But, once again, I don’t know how to tell you to take a screenshot on that phone.
