I have a mobile which has some sms messages and a few whatsapp chats which are evidences in a legal matter and they may have to be shown in the Court at a later stage. The problem is that the mobile has gone out of order and to repair it, the service centre people are saying that they will have to format the mobile!
Now, my query is that how can I save/store these sms and whatsapp chats in a state so that they shall be admissible in Court?
Solution what I could think of - I have the whatsapp chats mailed to my email id through this mobile. Will that be accepted as primary evidence?
Secondly, regarding the sms messages, I have an app which will create a backup of the messages and save it in my account on any cloud service. Again the query is that will that be admissible (If I retrieve the backup file and then take a print out of the message and submit).
Pls. suggest friends what should be done!
