The phone provider?    I really don't know.   Good Luck!

The phone bill will at least tell you the numbers the texts went to. Some phones will send you the texts that have been sent in an ema depends on the phone, carrier, and plan

If they are deleted probably no way. Can you imagine the requests?

Can u look online and check them? Is there a way to be the main operater that controls all the phone commands like on a computer? Check at the store right now my son is blocked from all texting and online things on his phone.

Depends on why you need them.  The phone provider should be able to have a list of numbers that texts were received and sent to, but not the actual texts.

If you think that something illegal might be happening, such as you child being conned into sending inappropriate texts and nude photos to someone else... then the police can go a lot further in getting them, even if deleted.

I believe there are ways, but you would have to call the provider to find out how.

If they're prepaid the only thing you can do is get a list of numbers they've texted/called within the last 24 hours. (depending on the phone/carrier) Otherwise check the bill.
