Getting copy of text message history

Where there are two people on the same Rogers account, with different cell phones and numbers, is it possible to get a copy of the other user's text message history?  Will Rogers provide that information?  Does anyone know?  Thanks.

Even if you are the account owner as a whole, and the other text is just a family members..

Generally.. NO.  Its a breach of privacy, etc.  I dont thing generally you can even get a list of your own.
Usually the only instances where they do, is upon court order for an investigation, etc.

 

You can call in an ask, but i dont think that you will likely get it.. sorry 😞

Thanks.  That is what my gut tells me too, but I wanted to see if anyone else has run into this before.

Can text message history be viewed on the cell phone itself?  a BB Z10?

Only if that 'session' has not been deleted/closed.  Once its closed.. its gone.

(i have an iphone mind you, but i just never close those message threads.. then can ALWAYS reference back to old texts, etc).

The short answer is No.

Rogers does not keep a log of SMS (text) content. it is a violation of privacy laws.
It may be possible with a court order but I don't believe the messages are saved on the server so even with a court order it is unlikely. A court order likely would only grant access to the SMS history on the phone.

Getting copy of text message history

I am currently in a court case and I need to retreive a text conversation between myself and the person I am taking to court. Is there any way I can get this text history?

Does your phone not keep all texting, or do you delete it? Or do texts automatically get deleted after a certain time? I don't text a lot and and all the ones I haven't deleted are still there.
