How To: Print text messages on a Nokia Lumia

This article is dedicated to guide you on how to print text messages on a Nokia Lumia Smart phone.
There is no direct command for Print as in Microsoft Word. However, there are two ways which you can use to upload your text message to Skydrive and then sync your Nokia Lumia with your PC to print.

Upload Copy/Paste notes to Skydrive:

  1. Copy the text from the SMS requiring backup.
  2. Paste all the text on a notepad.
  3. Go to the Office app.
  4. Go to locations and open Skydrive.
  5. Upload the notepad file from the phone to Skydrive.
  6. Now, sync your phone with your PC using USB cable.
  7. Download all notepad files to your desktop and you are ready to get them print.
  8. But there is a limitation that you will have to copy/paste all SMS one by one.

 

Unofficial Apps:
There are some unofficial apps that have not been recognized by Microsoft to be safe. But they are doing well in the market. One such app, SMS Backup allows the users to export individual and group of SMS to Skydrive. You can also filter SMS by date and keywords.

Here is the detailed procedure to proceed:

  1. First, make sure that your device Interop is unlocked. This means that your device can install unofficial apps as well.
  2. Then, select the text message you want to print.
  3. Go to export and backup.
  4. Then, upload the text message to Skydrive.
  5. For uploading to Skydrive, sign into your account using your Windows Live ID.
  6. Then, tap Upload SMS to Skydrive and confirm.
  7. Follow the same procedure from here on as we already discussed.
  8. Sync your phone with your PC using USB cable.
  9. Download all notepad files to your desktop and you are ready to get them print.
