The title of your post isn't the same as the post, so I'm a bit confused.  If you want to see the numbers being texted by phones on your account, log into your on-line MyVerizon account (assuming you are the Account Owner and logged in as such) and click the blue Usage Details.  Select the appropriate line at the top of the page (if applicable) and then under the table showing text usage, click the blue View Messaging Details.  However, texts sent/received via iMessage won't show up since they don't go through Verizon's system.

If you want texts sent to your e-mail, you should be able to forward them.  If it's another phone on your account that you're wanting those texts sent to your e-mail, there may be an app for that, but I'm not sure.  With Androids, you can get apps that back up text messages and then forward them to your e-mail; I don't know if there's a similar iPhone app or not.

Hi jsawyer2127!

Keeping up with activity on the other lines of your account is extremely important. And we definitely do everything we can to allow you to keep a tap on things. In fact, we provide a service that I hope will help out a great deal.

What I'm referring to is viewing your usage details. Now, you won't be able to view actual content from text messages as this is a privacy law we must abide by, however, you can view detail including the number texted, the number texting, and times which the text was sent. To view this, stop by http://bit.ly/xB4iTc and select "View Usage" to get started.
