Where Are Text Messages Stored in Sony Xperia Phone?
Unlike photos, videos, audio and music that are stored on the external memory card, SD card, and can be transferred to the computer via a USB, text messages, the same as contacts, are stored on the internal phone memory and cannot be exported to the computer in such way. Provided that you have bought a new phone and want to remove your text messages to it, you're required to copy them to your SIM card first. However, no matter where you store your messages, either on the phone memory or the SIM card, it's impossible for you to directly print them out or transfer them to the computer like the photos for printing.
