You can forward the texts to your e-mail and print from there, or use a text backup app from Google Play.

Did you take the advice of the earlier poster and forward the messages to your email or download a SMS backup application from the Play Store? There are some applications that will send the backup to your email address and others will save you your phone storage space either the internal or external storage.

As far as I know there is no way to tell if the person on the receiving end actually read the message. Your text message app might have a delivery report for the message, but it needed to be turned on prior to sending the message.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
