Saving Iphone texts

Unread postby AlmostSingle » Thu Jul 21, 2011 9:06 am

Is there a good way to save text conversations from my iphone to my laptop. I've got some pretty juicy exchanges and I'm always afraid that I will accidently delete them.

I usually copy them text by text and insert them in an e-mail to send to my lawyer or myself if I want to share them, but not deleting them is the best to show you haven't modified them and it shows the date time stamp with it.
Remarriage is an excellent test of just how amicable your divorce was.

I tried sending them all in an email, but it just turned out to be a big block of messy text. I'll just make sure that I don't delete them.

Mine doesn't mess up, I open an e-mail, then move to the texts, hold the screen over the text to copy, move back to the e-mail and paste it, repeat the process, never has messed up on mine that way, not sure why yours does.

I used a program called Tansee iPhone Transfer (the full feature version costs $19.95).
The cost was well worth it to me, as I had way too many texts to copy and paste.

You can do a screenshot (hit sleep button and home button together).
This will save a pic of whatever is showing on the screen.
Then you can transfer/email the pic wherever you want it.

I use PhoneView on my Mac to copy texts and voicemails from iPhone to computer for archival purposes

I dont have an Iphone, just a regular flip phone.

I have been borrowing someones phone, taking a picture of the text messages and sending them to my email and printing them out. I deleted the contact name so it would show the number it was from insted of the name.

On longer text messages I have to take two pics so I can get the date and time, but works well.

You want to make sure that you capture the text messages in a way that the data can be authenticated if needed to be submitted as in court evidence. Don't do this half baked and ask an attorney or forensics expert first.

I use google voice. It keeps a record of every text, call, and voicemail.... forever.

Also, the audio files can be downloaded as .mp3s

The only bad part is it doesn't handle texted photos.

I'd think that in court it would go something like this:

Lawyer: How is the communication with your X.

You: She's is really high conflict and bla bla bla.

Lawyer: Your honor, I'd like to submit into evidence these text messages.

Then, if there are objections, you basically authenticate them yourself. You are under oath and say you remember sending and receiving them and since its just between you and the X, its not hearsay.
The List
Read it.
