    Is there any way to print texts? I've tried emailing them to myself, but it doesn't show the # of the person that sent it. I'm taking my ex wife to court & would like to bring in copies of our texts instead of my phone.

    Maybe ask Sprint for a transcript? If you are rooted you can take screenshots of the text message and print those out...

    I'm pretty sure Sprint has to be able to produce copies of texts and that texts are retrievable for a limited amount of time. Just ask for a copy of text with your bill.

    Thanks for all the suggestions so far everybody. I'll call sprint later today & start there.

    Good luck. They get tons of request for this info every day so I'm pretty sure you'll get it back to a certain date. They also have to be able to provide it when pursuing payment/account suspension or deletion for improper/excessive texting.

    Here is a simple solution that WORKS! There is a program called
    G-Backup that "Backs up" all of your incoming and outgoing SMS, MMS, Call logs, Video, and Pictures to your Gmail account. Full Text Transcripts sent to your Gmail account which can be accessed by any computer with internet capability.


    You will need to set up a Gmail account if you do not have one!

    Install G-Backup on the phone in question *must be Android based* (Spouse, Child, Teen) and select the setting that backs up Content Immediately, use your Gmail account and password so every time a text is sent or recieved it automatically gets sent to a folder located on the left side of your Gmail home screen under "inbox" etc. with complete transcript, Time Stamp, and phone number of conversation.

    G-Backup Screen Shot:
    Label names is actually the folder names that appear in your Gmail account.

    To help secure the install of G-Backup you can then install a program called:

    App Lock- This program restricts access to other programs, requiring a password to open them. You can password protect the G-backup so settings and contents can not be veiwed or changed, they wouldnt even be able to open the program!

    BUG-- App Lock has to be re-activated if the phone is turned off and restarted, meaning opening the program and typing the password to rearm it. This bug should be fixed with later releases which will autostart app lock when phone is rebooted.

    App Lock screen shot:

    Please note, spying on someones cell phone conversations is illegal.

    As a side note, I know it sounds backwards but a work around for the bug in app lock is to uncheck Enable Applock in the settings. Applock will then launch after reboot.

    Why is G-Backup Full not shown in the market?

    There is a great free app in the market which allows you to print pretty much anything wirelessly from your phone. Its called PrinterShare.

    That's hilarious. It's the exact same reason I want to figure out how to print texts. Damn ex-wives, if only we could bring the B.S. they text us to court. I will keep working on it, and let me know if you find something out. Thanks

    As akazabam mentioned in the other thread (Applications Forum) - looks like you have to use the link above to get to it.

    I found HP e print, if you have a network hp printer, or others, I installed it and it worked a treat, and my printer is quite an old one, pretty impressed tbh, and free.

    Lol, I take that back it printed a black page :(

    Sprint can only give you the date and time stamp from a text and not the content we tried going through and ugly custody battle best thing i found was screenshots and email then printing may seem like a hassle but if you do it every so often and just keep them in a folder as you go
