How to save my TEXT messages?

Hi everyone,

 

I know this is a simple question. but .. I send text messages to my boyfriend all the time but .. I cannot figure out a way to send them to my email account.

 

I have choosen the OPTIONs  and clicked FORWARD or FORWARD AS ... but it only saves the last message.  I would like the entire email string of messages which goes back several weeks to be forwarded. But it seems I can only choose FORWARD AS and then it only forwards the last post.

 

Please help!

Becky

 

I have tried to FORWARD but it doesn't seem to go to my email accoiunr

Hello Becky,

 

There is no option to send entire SMS (text message) history simultaneously, you have to send it one by one on your email using forward as option.

 

Its actually not a restriction of Blackberry, it is only because of carrier end.

 

Thanks.!

Or you can copy SMS conversation one-by-one and paste it to email.

 

Hope that helps. Good luck!

Thanks, I think I will try your idea of cutting and pasting each message into an email. Smiley Happy

@unleashurself - thanks. I did npt realize that ythis was a restriction. I just thought I had missed something. Anyway, I don't plan to print out his text (so no tree killing) but he sends me such sweet text messages .. I at least want to save them in electronic form. Smiley Happy

Thanks again all!

Re: How to save my TEXT messages?

I am not sure what you are glad about...

 

This solution is as bizarre as if i ask to make a phone call and you give me a manual of how to make smoke signs...

 

At least BIZARRE!

 

The texts are saved in the BB secondary storage... It MUST have a workaround accessing the BB via "USB" or  "Synch up Appl" to get this message thread...

 

Please double check option and do not accept the "smoke signs:" solution as final!!!

 

Cheers!
