  • I don't think you can do that. Even with detailed billing you only get the number of incoming and outgoing texts and the phone numbers but never the message itself.

  • I tried to get the actual messages when my ex-husband was cheating on me and they couldn't do it.

  • I called the phone company to ask one time and they said all I can get are the phone numbers, but never ever any content. Said it would be an invasion of privacy. Sorry.....

  • I think I have heard of people getting them for court, so it would be worth asking!

  • I went through a similar situation with my daughter. I couldn't get the text messages, but I could see who she texted and how many times. I told her I'd be checking her phone everyday and there had better be a txt on it for every one my account said there was....After a while I didn't have to check who she was texting, she just assumed I was and quit erasing her messages.
