Questions and Answers

How can I spy on his phone without access or touching it?

What is the best one to get I have been burned twice with spyware


If you have been burned by spyware then his phone is not jailbroken so no app can be installed remotely. A device has to be jailbroken or the app needs to state no jailbreaking required like mSpy iPhone spy app does. Without that there is no way to spy on the phone without touching it. You will need to jailbreak the phone and then put a spy app on. In the future the best spy apps offer refund policies and clearly spell out what needs to be done in order to install the app.

Hi, can I see SMS without having the target phone at all?

Want to see SMS on my other phone, don't have access to it but have account number and IMEI number


It won't be possible for you to see the text messages on this other phone. You'd need to access it to load a spy program on-board to get its texts delivered to you.

How can I see his phone history without him ever knowing?

I just want to make sure he isn't doing anything before we get married.


You should be open and honest with your partner, explaining to him why you have doubts about him. If that's not an option, let your phone battery run out and ask to borrow his phone to send a message. You can browse through his history that way. Just don't forget to send that message!

I am in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend. Lately he did not want to talk so much. His time schedule changes. and he is less affectionate. He keeps leading me on every now and then, and he became very hard to read. I think he is trying to get me to stick around while he cheats but I don't know because I'm not there with him everyday. Can you tell me how can I spy on his phone, or tap his phone and monitor his messages for FREE? I really need to know. please?

There is no free way to do this. You also really need to see his phone to install any app for it to work properly. For instance for Auto Forward you will need to root his Android if you want to monitor any third party apps.

Apps like mSpy and Auto Forward can monitor iPhones. FlexiSpy can intercept iPhone calls and let you listen in. If you distrust him then look for the right app to use so that you can make the best monitoring decision. Look for whether the phone needs to be jailbroken or if you need it apple ID login details.

The really good spy apps like FlexiSpy can access all of the hidden activity. Make sure that the spy app you choose has customer service. A real working phone number would be a good clue that the spy app is good and works properly. Apps like mSpy and Highster Mobile are also excellent at monitoring the deepest parts of the phone.

I think my live in companion is cheating but he is older and has an old virgin mobile flip phone is there a way to spy on those kind of phones?

Is there a way to spy on his older device

Unfortunately, no. Flip phones do not have the Android system that is needed to have a spy app installed. What you can do is follow him and track his movements or higher a private detective. GPS trackers for cars are not expensive and you can put that on his car and track his every move with that. If you do not know how to install it, you can ask where you purchase it if they can recommend someone although they are not hard to install.

I need to be able to see the messages and calls my girl gets because I think she is running around on me. How can I do it without an access to her phone?

She has been getting strange calls and a lot of messages. I want to know if she is cheating or what.

You can try a spy app that can be installed over shared WiFi like mSpy or FlexiSpy. This still may not work if her phone is not jailbroken and you will have to root the phone to see any third party apps like Skype.
