    How do I print out text messages on a non rooted phone?

    Hi I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how I can print out text messages or SMS messages from the phone that include the person who sent them and the date and time . I currently have Handcent and Go Sms Pro on the phone. The phone is currently unrooted and and after I print out these messages I would like to root it.

    thank you so much
    Shula

    Why do you need them printed? But anyway, you can move them to the sd card, that way they won't be gone after you root. If you do move them, and you need them printed for a reason other than just wanting a copy so they don't erase when you root, I assume you could put the card in the computer and open the file in a processor and print them off there? I'm not sure if that would work, but it could.

    thanks Kai, I tried that and the Dat file it saves in is totally unreadable when I open it. Is there anyway to take screenshots with an unrooted phone? Thanks again

    Try looking for a SMS backup in the market. I had found one, but I forgot which one, which allowed me to back up my SMS messages to its own folder in my gmail account. That will then allow you to see all of the messages in order, showing the number to and from, date and time. I guess from there, you can just print them out. Also, doesn't Handcent now allow you to back up all messages to their website (if you pay the $6 to upgrade)?

    you could back them up, root, install a screen capper, take a snapshot, and print the picture?

    Better than screen shot, you can export text messages from android to pc and then print them out.

    You need an android device manager to back up your text messages to pc, and save them as printable formats, then you can print them out easily.

    This can be helpful.

    Printing mobile phone messages .You can not print directly ! First you need to transfer phone messages to computer and save it . Then print text messages with a printer !

    Don't know how to print text messages from android phone, you should use a third party file backup app to transfer sms to computer first, because the computer won't detect sms just via the usb connecting.
