Print out text message conversation?

Discussion in 'iPhone' started by Chris Pisarra, Feb 9, 2010.

  1. Hi

    I have a long text message exchange with an ex-employee that I would
    very much like to be able to save as a file or print out. Is there any way
    to do this?

    Thanks

    Chris

    Copy and paste it into an email and send it to your computer would seem the
    simplest way assuming you referring to a text message on an Iphone with 3.0
    or higher firmware installed.

    on a mac it's in the mobile sync folder in app support. no idea on
    windows. the contents of that folder is not that easy to figure out,
    but you can use any of a number of utilities to extract the messages,
    such as iphone backup extractor. the messages are in a sqlite database.

    1) under messages/edit,
    2) select all messages that you want the content off.
    3) click 'Forward'
    4) a new screen which allows you to MMS apprears, in this screen select,
    and copy the text.
    5) press 'cancel'
    6) goto 'Mail', and in the messagebody, 'Paste' the text...

    Or copy and paste into Notes, and print using one of the third-party
    printing apps.

    Yes I did think about that - but the `simplest` is the email route as
    printing via a third party app normally involves installing an app AND
    software on the computer the printer is plugged into.

    A bit of a hassle for printing just one text conversation.

    Oh, your printer doesn't have WiFi capabilities. I guess that it's not a
    good solution then.

    My printer set-up isn't really relevant is it? ;-)

    Well, if the printer were set up to connect via WiFi, you would be able to
    print directly to it from the iPod with the proper 3rd party application.

    Indeed and I can. But it wasn't me who was wanting to print the text
    message conversation!

    Saving message in email first for printing is a good choice.

    It lets you save your text messages as a text file and then you can print out your sms conversations. Hope that is helpful!

    Choose the text message you need, tap on the "edit" tab; tap on the specific tests you want included and tap on the "Forward" button on the bottom right then email it to yourself or anyone you want to send it.

    In most cases, you would need to use a paid third party tool to export and then print your iPhone text messages on your computer. If you have a low amount of messages you want to print you can also take print screens of each message, then transfer the them to your computer and print text messages from iPhone.
