I have a text message on my android J7V smart phone and I would like to send it to my computer. Is that possible, in a simply way?

The simplest way is to forward it to your e-mail address and then access it via your e-mail on your computer.

Thank you, tikibar1 and bearone21 for taking the time to help out our fellow community members.

I know how important it is to keep your text messages safe, and we're always here to help. The suggestions that tikibar1 and bearone21 provided are very helpful. Did you give them a try?

May I ask the reason you want to transfer the text messages from the phone to your computer? Is your phone fully functional? What messaging app are you using? If you are using Verizon Message Plus, you can back up your text messages, and view them online from your computer. Visit Verizon Messages (Message+) FAQs | Verizon Wireless for complete details.
