  • I would call customer service. I'm not sure if there is a record of the actual texts - maybe just a record of the sent/received phone numbers. Hmm. I know on my verizon online that's all it has. But w/ the technology the way that it is maybe the txts are kept somewhere. Hope you're able to find out either way!

  • I believe that the only way to get them is to subpeona them. I hope I spelled that right. The texts are there in the system but they are not available to just anyone at anytime. This is the info I got from my BFF who suspected her DH of some inappropriate activity. She called and asked. They can be gotten for legal cases or things of that nature.

  • You might be able to since you are wanting what minors are texting. But you'd have to call and ask.
