Question [Q] How to get SMS out of the WP8.1 phone to print for the police

I'm writing this story in behalf of one friend and asking how to get out of the phone about 100 SMS messages to be printed for the police in case of stalking. I don't find any solution my self. Is there any program to get out SMS messages or is there any possibilities to hack the phone or Back Up copy on outlook account.
Thanks in advance

I'd like to know this as well,it's the main stumbling block stopping me switching to Windows phone. On android it is so simple, I do mine weekly for a access court case against my ex. It should be a priority in this day and age.

on wp 8.1 you can enable them to be backuped
or when it are only 100 then you could copie them and past the text in an email ( I know that sucks but there isn't any better)

Thanks for that, when you back them up exactly where do they go and what can you do with the back up?
I don't mind the copy and paste aspects of it, it's a bind but I can do that.

Seems like there needs to be an app out there in this day and age to make this a simple task.

SMS backup is actually possible even just on 8.0, but it goes into an invisible SkyDrive (excuse me, OneDrive) folder. People were able to find the data before, but I don't remember how.

You could try intercepting the network traffic from the backup operation and see if that tells you where it's going?

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.

That's a bit technical for the average person to be honest. Why can't they have something like 'sms backup and restore' like they do in android to make things simple for the average person?

I know where the backup is but I think the only one who can open it and extract SMS out is NSA - and of cource MS

Care to share the location? It may be possible to get it by requesting the files directly from OneDrive (or wherever) rather than navigating to them using the UI.

With that said, it might be worth contacting MS about it. I mean, if it's for the police, that's a pretty good reason to make that stuff accessible.

You probably only get it in plain text.
You need the coversationlist and the Sms textfield.
There are two way's of getting it.
Screendumps and / or.....the old fashion camera.

The option of making your messages visible in outlook doesnt work anymore.
