Almost all mobile phone users have a misunderstanding area is that they think the messages are saved in the external SD card, but actually they are always kept in the phone itself or SIM card.

How to Print Samsung Galaxy Text Messages on Computer
Tips: You must avoid the data from being overwritten. To do this, the Samsung phone should not be used for any update, which will wipe off the missing files forever. What "update" means here is any new content added to the device, including photos , videos, audios and so forth.

3) Android 4.2 or newer users: Enter "Settings" < "About Phone". Press "Build number" for several times until you are informed that "You are under developer mode". Then go back to"Settings" < "Developer options" < "USB debugging".
