One of the best cell phone spy applications out there for any non-jailbroken iPhone is mSpy. It is extremely powerful.

Sometimes you might spy on call logs, or spy on SMS and text messages with mSpy, but not really understand the relationships at play.

Spy on Call Logs
If you're trying to spy on someone, knowing who they call, who calls them, and when those calls were made is critical to understanding what's really happening. While calls are just part of the picture, they do represent a big part of that picture. Especially if someone tells you they didn't have any phone balance, or that they haven't been calling someone, but you are able to use mSpy to see their calls and know that they are lying to you. Below we will show you how to spy on call logs with mSpy.
- 1This will open the call logs window.To spy on a person's call logs, simply click the call logs option on the main menu to the left side of the mSpy dashboard.Advertisement

- 3This arrow will point towards the contact.Incoming calls will be shown with a green circle and a white arrow.
- 4It's important to note that sometimes calls deleted within two minutes of being received may not be shown. Unfortunately it's not realistic for mSpy to check the phone every moment, otherwise it completely drains the phone battery. Therefore call logs are only scanned every two minutes by mSpy for the iPhone you are spying on.Next you will see the call duration, or an indication that the call was missed.
- 5This is simply the date the call was received, made, or missed.Last you will see the date.

Spy on SMS and Text Messages
A lot of information is exchanged in text and SMS messages. In fact, if someone's cheating on you, there is probably a lot of flirting and secret messages sent between lovers. The same holds true of children planning things they don't think parents are aware of, or dishonest business associates planning to meet and exchange documents or accept illicit payments.
