Default Private Text Messaging???

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Blackberry Pearl 8100 and t-mobile is my provider. I am curious can you relook at text messages a month or so after they were sent and deleted off the phone? I know some providers/phones keep records but do they keep the full text you sent and if so can I possibly go to my provider and get the full messages i sent out previously? Please get back to me thanks!

Bianca.... just tell him you *know* what he has been doing...he will probably confess.. Just kidding. I know that they can but usually only when the are required to do so for legal proceedings and investigations. I don't know that they will be willing to do this for you.

Good luck!

Maybe someone else knows more...

you can find info on your MyTmobile.com as far as the numbers that were sent to/ received from, but nothing more. Go into billing details.

And get someone you can trust lol

Quit your sinnin' ways child and confess it all! LOL... I'm just kidding. I'm with AT&T and the ony way they wil give out this info is with a court order... like in the case of adultery and divorce.

It could be possible if the bill/contract is under his name.

Even as the account holder, I do not think the carrier will release the CONTENT of text messages send to/from any of the lines on the account.
You might be able to see what phone numbers are being used... but I doubt you'd convince the carrier to release the actual messages themselves.

Yea thing you can see is the numbers under the current usage on T-Mobiles website (mytmobile) but it won't show anything sent and there isn't a way to get it by just calling them and asking

Smile T-Mobile Text Messages

I dont have any fact on it, but I thought I remembered seeing a episode on Dateline or similar about this. If I remember right, T-Mobile was the only cell phone company in the USA that did not save any of their messages, even for court subpeona's. Every other company saved them for 30, 60 and 90 days maximum.

Like I said... all based off of my short-term memory from several months ago, but I think I remember it right.

Good luck!
