Not unless you get as court order and they are only stored for so many days on verizon's servers I heard.  Mary

I apologize, but once text messages are erased from the phone completely, they can not be recovered from the phone.

Why do I need a court order to access my own information...that I am paying for???

 

I can understand why a third party like the police need a court order, but why do I need one?  It's my information.

 

My wife and i are worried about texts that my *early * teen daughter is getting from a coach/trainer and she is deleting before we can see them.  How the heck is this an example of Verizon being proactive about protecting children if we can't get  a copy of this information stored on the server?

Because that is verizons rules if you want deleted texts from their servers, just how it works with verizon.  It has been asked many times how to retrieve delted texts and the answer is only with a court order.  If you shearch the boards you will see many posts asking this questions with a lot of people concerned about the texts their teens and sending and getting.  Call verizon and ask anway, couldn't hurt.  Mary

Some phones when messages are deleted, are placed into a trash folder. You may want to research if your daughters phone has this feature.

When our kids were teens, and we were paying the bill, they understood that we, as parents, were responsible for what happened on that phone, and we had access to it at any time.  If they were "hiding" information (deleting before we could see), the phone was gone - or texting was blocked.  It didn't take long  - they knew if they wanted to "privacy" and freedom, it came at a price (their own account).

Is there any way for my phone to be copied on text messages sent from another phone on my calling plan?  Trying to catch an unfaithful spouse.  Thanks for any help you can provide.

This would have to be done from the phone that is sending the texts, and I've never heard of a phone having this feature. Basically, the person would have to add your number to the "To:" field on each outgoing message.

There MAY be a smartphone or blackberry app that will accomplish this automatically, but as Catfish said, It would need to be set up on the sending phone.  For the feature and multi-media phones, auto-forwarding of text messages is not available.
