Verizon Question. - March 23rd 2010, 05:36 AM

hey, got a question. If my mom were to ask for a detailed bill, would it show all of my text messeges that I sent and recieved? Like the actual messeges? I have Verizon. Please let me know.

I don't think it'll show the exact texts, like what they said.
But, it will show who you called and who you texted, and at what time, on the bill.

As Kate said, it won't show the content of the text, just the numbers they were sent to.
I think I should also point out though that your operator (verizon in this case) keep texts you send, not sure for how long, but in the UK, its for two years at least.

Hope this answers your questions =).

I also just wanted to throw in there the fact that those messages are saved on databases. And while they may not come in the bill, if need be they can always be retrieved and reviewed.

Sure she could request to see them. If the account is under her name.

Yeah i will have to agree with the above posters.
Is there something that you don't want her to see, that is worrying you?

After doing some reading, I don't *think* that they can view or request your text messages in anyway without a court order, even if they are the primary account holder. I'm not sure of this because there is a lot of contradictory information, but the most reliable looking sources said it is NOT possible without some sort of legal action.

They can see when and who you texted, but I don't think there is a way to see what.

Re: Verizon Question. - March 24th 2010, 04:36 PM

I have a friend who is a manager for Verizon, and according to her the account holder can get a hold of the information. They have to submit paper work and it takes a little while to process. So it’s not like they can just walk in there and get it, but it is possible. Now, if someone, outside of the account holder wants the information they would have to get a court order.

Either way, all information is saved and recorded. And if you are worried about someone finding something out, I highly suggest you don’t write it down, particularly in places like text messages, emails and any where on the internet for that matter. Because now a days, everything is recorded and saved for legal reasons.
