    Does anyone know if you can transfer entire text threads to a pc. I have some conversations that are very long and screen capture would take too long to do. Some of these are 60 – 70 messages long.

    Is there some trick to not pull up the menu when the power putton is pushed? I have been unable to get clean shots without a menu showing.
