How to Save MMS Files on iPhone to a Computer

How can I save a very long MMS history to my computer?

I have a long MMS history on my iPhone. When I plan to save all of them to my computer, the attachments (most of them are pictures) can't be fully loaded, so that I can't save them to the camera roll before I transfer them to my computer. How can I save all the MMS files on my iPhone to the computer? Please help!

If all your MMS are still on your iPhone, there are two ways for you to save those MMS to computer, including attachments. One is directly scanning your iPhone to save the MMS files to computer, and the other is extracting your iTunes backup to get them out.

No matter which way you prefer, you can choose to use Wondershare dr.fone for ios (iPhone Data Recovery for Windows) or Wondershare dr.fone for ios (iPhone data recovery for mac). Both of them allow you to save iPhone MMS files to computer in either way mentioned before. They support iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, and iPhone 3GS. Besides exiting MMS on your iPhone, Wondershare dr.fone for ios can let you recover deleted MMS on your iPhone. Just download the free trial version to have a try at first.

Step 3. Preview and save iPhone MMS to your computer

During the scan, you can preview what have found in the scan result. When you've found your wanted data, you can pause or stop the scan. When the scan completes, all found data are classified into categories.

For MMS, you can preview them by clicking "Messages". Then you can view the full content. If you want to save the MMS attachment separately, you can check "Message Attachments". All of them are there. Mark what you want and click "Recover" to save them to your computer with one click.
