Other than reading the messages on the device there isnt any way to get copies of text messages without a court order..

Once you have the device in hand, you could take screenshots of the messages and send them to your email address.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Ann they actually should be able to forward the message to email from the messaging app if they have access to the device

that's true, but it doesn't always forward the date/time stamp (if that's important to the OP)

I tried it on my iPhone and my S3 and it appears that Apple or Android does not send date and time info with stock but Android does with handcent sms application.
