From your son's phone - yes

From your phone, no

From a computer - possibly if he has Verizon message plus app installed and set up. However, it would not show iMessages and he will be smart enough to get third party messaging apps that will be completely hidden from you.

So the bottom line is, the only way you can know for certain what your son is texting is to have access to his phone.
