Danh :

Have you tried forwarding them to an email address?

JACUSTOMER-xqq6rvke- :

no

JACUSTOMER-xqq6rvke- :

are u there

Danh :

just hold down on the message and then you should be given an option to forward the message

JACUSTOMER-xqq6rvke- :

just hold down what

Danh :

the text message

JACUSTOMER-xqq6rvke- :

i understand the text message but hold down specifically on what and will it give you the option to forward to e mail

Danh :

actually...that may only allow you to forward to another cell phone. Cut and paste may work better. Do you know how to do cut and paste?

JACUSTOMER-xqq6rvke- :

you can cut and paste a text message on the i phone and then what

Danh :

First you select all the text that you need ... you perform a cut ... then on the iphone compose a new email .. and paste the text that you copied from the text message. You have email setup on the iphone right?

JACUSTOMER-xqq6rvke- :

yes i have email-i just want to send it to my email

JACUSTOMER-xqq6rvke- :

what do you mean by compose a new e mail

Danh :

ok...let's walk through it. Get to the text message that you are wanting to email. Let me know once you're there. By the way, is this an iphone 4?

JACUSTOMER-xqq6rvke- :

actually I would be sending it to my friend's i phone

Danh :

Oh...so you're only needing to forward the message to your friend's phone?

JACUSTOMER-xqq6rvke- :

i know how to forward the messages to her i phone 3g but we are trying to obtain a hard copy

JACUSTOMER-xqq6rvke- :

trying to obtain a hard copy from her phone since it is an i phone

Danh :

Darn...so it's not the newer iphone 4?

JACUSTOMER-xqq6rvke- :

can you do it on 3g

Danh :

not without jailbreaking it.

Danh :

what kind of phone do you have?
