How to Save Text Messages to Computer

By JV Suarez, Last updated: March 20, 2019

Is it possible to save text messages to Computer? Do you know that, help me? Thanks in advance!

"I am a procrastinator, I'll admit it and I prefer finding the easiest ways to do things. Nothing wrong with it in my own opinion but I'm sure that is a rather unpopular ideology. Anyhow, rather than agreeing or disagreeing, I'm looking for an easier way to handle the hundreds of texts messages that I've saved over the years, and I figured out the ideal set up is to read it on my computer.

I'm not trying to do the impossible here, I realize that sending a reply on my computer is not exactly how it will go but at the very least I think it's easier to read everything on a larger screen. That's all I'm asking here, nothing too impossible, don't you think? Anyhow, someone please drop me a reply or something, I need to know how this is going to happen or if it is at all possible."

A few years ago, we could only send emails to other computers, before that we had regular mail, and telegrams but now with just a few flick of our fingers, we can instantly send messages to our friends, colleagues and whoever we need to, it's just that easy now. Had you told anyone that a few years ago, they would totally look at you as if you are crazy.

Now depending on the number of messages that you need to read, a number of people prefer a larger screen to read through text messages or even emails, it really helps the strain on your eyes especially if you need to read a ton of messages.
