VzW only keeps about the last 10 days' worth of text messages and to get copies requires a court order.

like if I have a friend that works at Verizon can they get copies of text transcripts or does there have to be a court order? Is there also some kind of hack or something to get them?

No, they cannot.  As noted in the earlier post, the requests require a court order.

Thanks  Lasina. But content is only there for like 10 to 14 days right? So if there is no case filed yet by the time there is most likely the actual content of the messages will no longer be there right?

If the context of the texts ended up being shown, would it only show the texts for the number under the subpoena and not the other number?
