I want to download my texts to a spreadsheet that is sort able by date and person. 

Tried half a dozen free downloads none worked. 

Help?

This did not work.  It looks like it was last commented on in 2011 and the thread  looks a little shady. 

Anyone else??

 

I really need these texts.

Iexplore works perfectly. But you have to buy it. 

But worth every penny.

I've been using WideAngle's "Touch Copy" since at least 2010 to extract texts. I'm very happy with it. There is also a cost for Touch Copy but it's a lifetime purchase; so you never have to pay anything again

What's nice about iExplore is you can get a searchable pdf of all the texts to and from one number with whatever pics were sent. 

You can also download a spreadsheet, but the formatting was off. 

 

The searchable PDF was a huge help searching the 4500 or so texts between me and my adversary in court.
