Of course you can print text messages from iPhone via emailing them to yourself:

Open the SMS message that you want to print; tap and hold the message for a couple of seconds. Tap the "Copy" button to copy the message text to the clipboard. Open the "Mail" app on your iPhone, enter your email address in the "To" field and then tap inside the message body text box and tap the "Paste" button when it appears to paste the contents of the text message. Tap "Send," open the email on your desktop computer and print it out on your local printer. You should note, though, that the time and date information does not transfer when you copy and paste the SMS message in an email.

If you don't have an AirPrint or eprint printer directly from the phone no. You can take a screen shot of the texts which means power and home key together then release it will take a pic of them. After you can email it or transfer it by USB to a computer then print.

Yes you can print all of your texts.

You can download an app called "Email My Texts SMS". It is easy to use and highly rated.

Here is a link to it :

This app is for Android.  The OP is asking about an iPhone.

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

Hi harley87!  I can understand the need to retain important text messages.  Other than use of what’s suggested by the other community members (3rd party applications), the device is not capable of printing text messages directly.  However, you can email the text messages to an email address as an additional option.  Hope this helps!

Aww, come on Verizon! 3rd party the only way? Nonsense. Why not suggest using Verizon Messages with Integrated Messaging? That way the user can view, recieve, and send text messages on their computer as well, which makes printing them childsplay.

I am not certain whether or not you can backwards integrate and pull up messages from before one had the app, so this may not work for printing previous messages, but should work fine for future use.
