    Question .:Can You Look Up Text Message Conversations Online!!???:.

    hey everyone i was wondering does verizon have the ability to look up text message conversations online.


    So lets say im a parent and want 2 get my kids a phone with unlimited text messages. . .can i read what the text messages there send and recieveing says and from who and what time and etc!?


    i need an for sure answer. if you can look it up online or get it printed at a store or have CS send a copy of it in the mail?


    I have an friend that wants to know because there parents threatend them with it.


    Im sorry but i dont need anyone saying like the kids shouldnt be hiding stuff or the parents should trust there kid or any kind of post like that. I need an straight answer on it. simple yes or no and why please.


    because my friend is super worried. because there alot of private info that has been sent back and forth that shouldnt be let out.

    Aw, that setup made it impossible to snark in this thread.

    The answer is that no, you cannot do this. You can pull up a detailed bill copy at verizonwireless.com and see the number of messages sent per phone however there is absolutely no way to find the contents of these messages without a court order/subpoena to the carrier. Account holders can implement texting blocks as well as usage controls via the website that limit who they can text, when, and in what quantity, but again - no reading of the messages.

    So, unless you're a crooked judge - no dice.

    And by God, I mean me - and by kitten, I mean many kittens. So many kittens.

    To reiterate what rocket science said, no. Even high levels of data tech support can not pull the actual convos.

    Whatever rocet said is 190% true. I worked in data tech support with different access levels and i can assure you the answer is no.
    No longer a VZW employee, but still a good information source.

    And to confirm what Butthead and Rocket Silence said - NO

    End of thread
    I am no longer an employee of VZW, I left on good terms and still think VZW is the best network in the U.S. and most helpful CSR's in any industry.

    well end of thread or not i would appreciate it being left open to the mods.

    thanks.


    but i was pretty sure of the answer being i know a thing or 2 about cellphones and worked for Sprint. but couldnt confirm it on verizon. the person who was worried didnt believe me because the parents said they could and do it all the time and than there friends was saying that they were able to look up there own online or that there parents seen wat they were writing and got in trouble.


    basically i said no and was like 100% positive on that but i wasnt believed so much i guess because i really wasnt sure even though i was pretty sure. anyways so since there friends and etc was saying its possible i figured id go to good ol trusty howardforums and ask my fellow howardforumers and you guys would know for sure.


    but thanks again for answer.


    and yes ill appreciate this being left open just in case others got something 2 add or no a 3rd party site or something that could do it.


    but ya i said it couldnt be able 2 cuz thats alot of data 2 keep track of. it seems impossible for that.

    I'd just like to point out that this could be done on a smart phone. There are apps available (for instance this one ) that do what you describe.

    Pretty much answered already, but I will add that you can see who/when text messages were sent through myverizon, but not the actual message.

    If me as a parent gave my minor kid the PRIVILEGE of having a cell phone, then part of that PRIVILEGE includes random peeks at the messaging inbox/outbox. Its called responsible parenting.
