On an Android phone, you can forward the message to an email address and perhaps the same is true for an iPhone. Forward the message and on the stub, where the phone number to forward is requested, instead enter an email address in the usual format. Check by trying to send any text message to your own email.

I cannot even figure out how to copy and paste the string of texts between myself and another individual. I have done everything I can think of and just can't find that option. Even visited the Apple forums and it seems it can be done, however, the app one has to purchase to do so is costly.

Thanks for your thoughts and comments.

Each text would need to be copied individually and pasted into the email composition. Copy a text by pressing on it for a few seconds, should get a choice to Copy. Then switch to the email composition, press there and select Paste. Repeat for each text to continue pasting into the same email composition. Takes some manual-work but no cost.

The described Forward function is to forward it as a new text, not as an email.

Thank you so much, dadoes. My Granddaughter came over yesterday and, while she was here, I asked her about this. As a result she did a screen shot of the text string. I have saved the info you provided for future reference.
