Text Message History

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been gathering information to prove my relationship with my fiance for his interview. I wanted to pass on some critical information for anyone who uses Verizon Wireless. Actually I am not sure if this pertains to other US Wireless carrirers but just in case it does, you might want be aware of this also. I just found this out today.

I thought that the past 6 months of text messages would be stored and I would be able to pull this information and easily print it out for the interview. Much to my dismay I have learned that they only keep the past 3 months record of these. This is what they sent me an in response to my e-mail inquiry, "Verizon Wireless offers the ability to view a detailed report of your text, picture and video messages online. You will be able to view the date, time, and destination of sent/received messages for the last three billing statements as well as the details on your unbilled messages." They did say that they could pull data from earlier dates but they will need a search warrent for them!? :wow:

My finace and I do ALOT of text messaging. It really is our primary form of conversation. Soooo I might have 4 months of texting records to show at the interview out of the 8 months that have passed. I do have my call history and also other forms of ID but this was a bit surprising for me to learn so I thought to share it here to alert anyone who is counting on printing these all at once to maybe do a better job than I did and print them as you go. :crying:

Can you not print out a few pages from each of your billing statements if you get them? that's what we did.. we didn't print every single thing but we took a few pages from each billing cycle and it showed text coming in and text going out to our phone numbers so while it didn't show the actual texts it showed all the phone calls and texts that we sent..

And ive seen that somewhere that verizon only does that when a warrant is issued.. urgh... :bonk:

That Really Sucks !!

AT&T let's you go online and download PDF copies of all hard copies. I was able to download all the way back to Jan 2010. I would call Verizon's customer service number and then ask talk to a supervisor and explain why you need the records. They DO have the records, and NO you dont need a search warrant to view your OWN records. However, they MAY need you to send something positively identifying yourself to prove that it is truly YOU requesting the records. Another option would be to go to an actual Verizon store (not a mall kiosk) where they could identify you in person via photo ID.
