Knowledge: How does Android Phone Store Text Messages?

Before we show you how to print off Android text messages, it is necessary to understand how our phones store the SMS messages because we need to export the message from Android to computer at first.

You can easily transfer data from a cell phone SD card to computer by using a USB cable, but text message is easier said than done as it was stored in phone’s memory. You have to ask help from third-party software to help you export text messages from an Android phone and then you can start to print them out.
