Hi There!

 

 

 

I have been asked to provide evidence to the police to support their case against someone else.

 

How can I print all text messages sent/received to a specific number (Conversation), with time and dates showing?

 

I have MM 6.01 on a Note 5.

 

Cheers

I would have thought that for it to be evidentially admissible, the Police would need to subpoena your cellular provider for the records.
Or if it's too long ago for that, you'd need to turn your phone over to an appropriate forensics lab so they can produce an evidential-quality transcript from the phone's memory.

 

If you want a lower standard - in my view (but IANAL) probably not admissible in court - copy the text of each SMS, paste it into am email, then send yourself the email & print it out.
I have done that wen I wanted to keep an SMS conversation 'for ever' - but never as evidence to be produced in court.

 

My advice is to talk to the Police about it

I use SMS backup and restore. It produces an XML file. You can transform that to a nice format or print it directly.

You'd think the Police would want to do this forensically

Seems like you could just print out whatever you like

I'm not sure why the Police need your evidence. They just submit a court order and get all the messages from the Telco(s) concerned which can then be submitted as evidence.

They ask for the texts to be printed when they are just giving someone a warning for being a dick with sending texts. Know friends kids who have been asked for that a couple of times. Just screenshotted the messaging app and used those images. This usually happens when some parent over reacts and complains to the police and they have to pretend to be doing something about nothing.

They want it, so they can decide what charges to lay, they will get forensically accurate ones if they require them.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Lol 289 messages, and counting, it's not appealing. I've managed to get an XML file and printed them. 

 

I'll see what they say.

Whatsapp is encrypted, no-one can intercept. That's the official story at least, and is most likely true.
