Can I save text messages on a basic phone?

Hello. Is there a way to save messages on a dumb phone. Several years back I had a phone with a previous provider. I was able to connect my phone to a computer through USB and use some software that came with the phone to save and print the texts? Is there anything like this available with Verizon, even if i get a different dumb phone?

Thanks for the device make/model, we want to ensure all options are covered. Although there is not a service to back up the text messages, you can forward the messages to an e-mail address via the text messaging application.

We know how important it is to be able to save certain texts, or to even print them out. We'll do all we can to help out. What make and model phone is it?
