Questions and Answers

How can I get the text messages off my boyfriends sprint iPhone sent to another computer?


You can only spy on texts or emails of a family member/s, Girlfriend or boyfriend legally in most locations. There are a lot of spy applications for iOS, if you have access to their phone then you can install it to monitor. Apps like mSpy can be installed without jailbreaking the iPhone. With these apps, there will be a link to a Control Panel that you can access from any device that is internet compatible. Spyera is another spy app you should investigate as well because it can allow you to listen to live calls.

If you can get his iCloud log in then you can backup his phone from time to time and log in from a computer to see what he has been doing for free.

How to check my boyfriend's cellphone location and text messages?

I believe he is cheating and he locks his phone.


Since his phone is locked and you likely don't know the pass-code, you will unfortunately, need to resort to remote spying applications to spy on his text messages and phone location. It's unfortunate because these spy applications generally are not as reliable as the physically-installed spy applications, and they may also be illegal. Before you use any of the applications in the following list, be sure to contact your local law enforcement so you can learn your area's laws regarding spying on somebody's cellphone. If it's legal, check out the following remote-install spy applications that you can use to spy on your boyfriend's cellphone location and text messages:

Looking to pull some text records from the past 3 weeks?

I've done this before on an old device, but if I root the device will it lose that deleted data still stored on it?


If you root the device you should still be able to transfer text records as long as they have not been deleted or overwritten. If you have a Samsung, Kies is one of the best ways to transfer history off of a phone. Generally, when you backup a phone it gives you all of the data on the phone including deleted that have not been overwritten.

While home, my family uses WiFi on all phones, is there a way for me to see what they are texting, Facebook etc?

My spouse has been caught cheating but won't move out. I want to see what she is doing on her phone while using my WiFi?

Wireshark may show you their Facebook messages but you will not get text messages or phone calls. The best way to track the family is to get a spy app that offers family plans. Once you download the app on one phone you will be able to get the rest done quickly. Using Wireshark will only show you what they are doing while hooked up to your WiFi so you won't see anything that they send while they are at work or school for instance.

If she is refusing to move out then maybe it means that she wants to work on your relationship. Give her a chance if there are children involved in the marriage but understand that it takes time to rebuild trust.

He only text me in couple days

A whole day without texting me, even I know that the phone is always on his hand and online. But he won't text me back. I think he is messing with his ex girlfriend

Maybe it is time for you to show up on his doorstep. You will have to gain access to his phone to install a spy app but there should be a reason for why he has not texted you in a few days. If he gave you no reason before hand like he was going to be busy with work or school then he is distancing himself for other reasons. Cheating may not be one of those but you should start preparing yourself for the likelihood of him breaking up with you.

I want to know if there is a way to receive copies of his texts even the ones he deletes?

I have a feeling he is deleting texts so I cannot see them

Spy apps like mSpy can retrieve deleted messages as long as they have not been overwritten before you installed the spy app. Once the install is complete he can delete but you will still see the message in the Control Panel.

What is the best way to verify/prove that my ex is monitoring me through my iPhone?

I think the question is pretty straight forward but in detail, he's making my life a living hell. I have to think about every message I send before I send it and wonder what information he's obtaining and how. I can't move forward with my life knowing he's keeping tabs on me and I can't simply not care about saying or doing things to upset him further, such as texting another man because he still has all of my personal possessions and he's proven that he's vindictive. He's also delusional and quite honestly, he's scaring me. It's just simply none of his business and he won't accept that. How can I completely verify all avenues in which he would be using my phone to spy on me? I've wondered about software downloaded on my phone, though it is not jail broken. I've considered him hiring a hacker as a possibility as money isn't really an issue for him. I even wondered to what extent a tech AT&T employee would have access to certain information. Even better, I'd love to prove that he's doing this, so that I can take legal action against him and at the very least get my personal items and finally fully separate from him. I have an iPhone 6s Plus. I mention several avenues in which he could be accessing my phone. I'm apprehensive to try just any software and would honestly feel better if I was receiving a direct answer for my particular instance and issue from someone who is knowledgeable on the matter and more tech savvy than I am. I'm desperate and I can't sleep or focus but no one has helped me yet. The police can't do anything, haven't had much luck with a lawyer yet, phone service provider didn't help, and the tech distributor that preforms IT services as well didn't have much to offer either. I have tried: Went into AT&T and to a tech distributor

Have yet to try any programs or software because I'm not sure which one is the best option and would like to fully understand how they work before and if I determine that's the best option for me. Also, I want to be undoubtedly certain that there is no other way he is gaining access to my phone beyond what a software might find. I think it was caused by: My ex somehow managing to access information through my phone
