    How to copy text message record to computer (I want to save them)

    I have a Samsung J7 Sky Pro via Tracfone. In my text messages I have a running record of MMS texts that I need to copy somehow so I can save them on my laptop. I've looked around and don't see how this can be done. Even if I have to print them out, that would be fine, but, I can't figure that out either. It's a pretty lengthy log of texts. Anyone have a clue how I can do what I need? Thanks in advance.

    Through the "Messaging" application, I don't see such an option. I use a Samsung S9+ running Android 10. Possible that a different application can allow you to export or forward those messages.
    Just another day in paradise.....

    You can forward them to an email address you have access to, by using your native messaging app. You probably have to do it one by one.
    I have done it in iOS and in Android from a moto e. Not sure about a Samsung J7, but I imagine it is the same procedure.

    Upon research further, I found that if I press and hold on the text message I could send them to my email which I then copied and pasted all off them into a Word doc. Each text message has to be sent separately though. While it was a bit time-consuming, at least I have what I need. Thanks all, and I will look into that software app as it might make the process a lot faster.

    I tried Droid Transfer/Transfer Companion. Was a bit hard to configure, but does work in saving text messages (and other things). You have to use .pdf format to save an MMS...did not try that yet. Trial version only allows the first 5 messages in a conversation, and may have a time limit.

    1. Install Super Backup from the PS.
    2. Run the app.
    3. Select the backup SMS option.
    4. Transfer the SMS backup file to your PC.
    5. Thank me very much.
