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.

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

Hi. I saw some sort of suspicious text messages. I asked about it?

He then locked his phone. once I asked about the suspicious text messages between him and the woman.I am sure they are still texting each other. how can I gain access to his WhatsApp and SMS messages

Because he locked his phone you will have to use a spy app that can be remotely installed. Unfortunately, these are largely unreliable until you can root the phone or jailbreak it for full access. Locking his phone tells you what you need to know. That he is either cheating or trying to hide something from you. It also says that you can't fully trust him and if you try to access his phone again and you do not see anything then that means that he has an emotional barrier between you.

I would like to know if a number was texting any other females?

He's my husband, when I walked in that room a minute ago, he acted like he was playing a game on his phone

If something made you suspect that he was using the game as a shield to cover him communicating with females then your best option is to install a spy app on his phone. Hopefully, he was just playing a game and not messaging another woman. Here are more VisiHow articles that have signs of an unfaithful husband:

You can try an app like Auto Forward but eventually, you will have to gain access to their phone to get the whole feature list of the app to work. You will need to go into their phone settings and allow unknown sourced downloads for you to be able to install spyware.

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.

How can I view the content on my boyfriend's phone without downloading anything or paying a price for anything?

I need to see what kind of texts he has been sending to his friend and if she is more than a friend..

He has cheated on me before and I physically stole his phone to see the texts..

TruthSpy generally has a free 48 hour trial. If you can get access to his phone then you should be able to see his texts with no spy app. Another option is for you to invite this female friend over or ask that your boyfriend does so that you can get to know her better. You will be able to tell with their body language if there is something more than friendship even if they try to hide it. If he denies inviting her to hang out with you then you can take that as a sign that they are more than friends.

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 put his number in and see who is he texting. Don't want to pay because it does not always work?

Want to check his texting for free. I have tried: Googled free and they all still want credit card

The reliable ones do still need a credit card for free trial. The apps mentioned on this page can be refunded but they are pay spy apps. The free ones never work or only give you a few features during the trial. FlexiSpy takes PayPal and so do other spy apps.
