    I don't know if you can save a whole conversation, but you can take a screen shot of a section of the convo and then send it to your computer and save it there.

    You can take a screen shot by holding down the home button and pressing the power button or vice versa, it then saves the image in your photo album.

    PDS- For the way you want it, it can't necessarily be saved and transfered, but it is saved when you back up your phone.

    Not sure what you mean. It's a program outside of iTunes that can sync the items listed....

    hmm. worked for me?


    it may, but it's also $40. maybe some people really care that much, but i for one don't think it's worth $40 to save my text messages. that's all i'd use it for anyway.

    I needed to save iPhone text messages for my job, and we used PhoneView. (You gotta have a Mac too.) It also let us save the iPhone voice mails to disk.

    Hi,
    I'm trying to save the text messages from my brother-in-law's iPhone (who recently passed away 2 months ago-so we're finally trying to save as much as we can i.e. his iPhone, computer files etc), but he had enable the 'encrypt iPhone backup' feature on, and none of the apps you've all mentioned work as i need that password. can anyone help me please? please either reply or send an email to rajchumberis@virginmedia.com thanks
