    I really need to export a text message thread from my 635 to a transcript. I need this for an upcoming court proceeding. It would not be practical to have the judge, etc. scrolling through my phone in court; also, my phone cannot be entered into discovery. PLEASE tell me there's a way to export text message threads!!!

    Not possible, unless your phone is unlocked, there might be a third party tool.

    or IT can be copied & pasted somewhere (OneDrive, another Text message, forwarded, etc.) in conjunction with a screenshot.

    Your text messages can also be backed up (I think to OneDrive)

    when they're backed up to OneDrive, where can I find them?
    I know I can forward them to email (one at a time) or copy and paste to OneNote, but these options don't preserve the dates and times the texts were received, which are details I need for the court case

    Any idea where I can find a third party tool that would help me?? There are literally hundreds of texts in the thread that I need to export. It's imperative that I have them for court.

    thanks! This would be tedious because there are hundreds of texts in the thread that I need exported, but at least it would preserve the dates and times of the messages.

    I do not think you will find an app.
    But did you already ask your carrier
    If they can help you.?

    Or buy a cheap 520 and use the same Microsoft soft account on it and during setup use the 635 backup. So a copy of your messages will be on the 520.

    If they are regular SMS your carrier should (must) be able to help you out. If they are for example from WhatsApp, screenshot will help you and emailing the conversation (I believe it includes date And Time). But disadvantage of emailing is if you got Too much texts it will include only recent 3-5 days
