    How can I download a text message or conversation from my phone

    I run a licensed animal shelter, and have a case that may go to court for a cruelty complaint.

    The person being investigated, has sent me text messages that I need to be able to print out or download to a computer

    and print out for the case.

     

    It seems that I can only forward one text at a time, but not the whole conversation.

     

    I am using an HTC One x.

    Any ideas?

     

    Thanks!

    You could download SMS Backup + ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.zegoggles.smssync&feature=search_result#?t=W10. )  Run the backup and the SMS messages will be backed up in your GMAIL account under the SMS heading. They will be threaded same as they are on your Android device. Once on GMAIL, you can print the entire thread.

    Press the Volumn down button and the power key at the same time while looking at the texts to take a screen shot of your phone. The picture will be saved in your photos file.

    When friending me mention that you found me on the AT&T forums.

    This only takes a shot of what is being displayed, not the whole thread or conversation...is that possible?

     

    Thanks!

    Can I ask a silly question?  What does this have to do with AT&T U-Verse?

     

    See if this might help?  Or maybe this (look at Dragon718's response)?  Or this?  Google is your friend and SMS Backup may be a friend, too.

    Thanks for the info.
    I did fumble thru the screen shot thing, and it worked, but this method sounds better.
