I have a text message thread on my phone. It is over 1-12/years old, meaning all texts for over that period of time. I'm with AT&T. Is there a way for me to print, backup, etc. the texts? Something that I just want to hold onto. As I said, I have them on my mobile. AT&T apparently saves them for 90 days. But since I have them on my phone, does that mean if I save them to cloud, it will save the full 1-1/2 years of messages? TIA.


ps- I had posted this on the computer forum, not realizing this forum was here.

You will probably get a lot more help that is a lot more useful, if you detail your phone's make, model, OS, and which messaging app you use.

I have an older phone, running Android 5.0.1 "Lollipop" and it's capabilities are quite limited, so I use the app "SMS Backup & Restore" https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...SBackupRestore
It will backup my messages, (compress all or designated messages in my phone, compress them), and store them where I designate (in the phone, via WiFi to a cloud, etc), and then read them anytime.
