can i track deleted texts

I have had to start monitoring my teenage daughters text messages due to some unacceptable content I came across recently. If she deletes texts from her phone, will I be able to see that from the usage logs at MyVerizon?

Yes, texts sent/received are still listed on the text logs even if the texts have been deleted from the phone.  If, by chance, she has an iPhone and is using iMessages, those won't show up on the text logs, however, since they go through Apple's servers, not Verizon's.

You only see the numbers texted to and from on the usage logs, nothing to do with deleted texts. If you want the actual text messages the only way to get those is with a court order is what I know. If it were me and I found unacceptable content in the texts she wouldn't have a phone anymore but never had that situation with my son as he didn't have a phone with texting until he graduated high school and went to college.
