    This is proving to be much more difficult than I thought. I need to get a long string of text messages off my phone and into a document that I can print out and save on a computer.
    I have tried to get into the system files using a file manager app, but have no clue as to which file I am supposed to be looking at.
    Does anyone have any ideas??? This is something that I really need to get done asap...

    I use SMS Backup which backs up my text messages to my Gmail account. It will group them by the contact name and put a label on them. You can then go in and copy the text from the gmail message in to a Word Doc. I have had to do it a few times and it comes in handy.

    I've been using it for printing off all business conversations. It exports into a pdf and emails it to you so you can print the conversation. You can either do one text or a string of texts. I love it. It's the missing link in Android systems. It's in the Android Market. PrintTexts is the app name.

    Downloaded the app & am now performing the back-up. Will it be obvious to me where to find the back-up in Gmail? The app didn't prompt me to name a file.
