Hey, I was wondering if anybody has tried to get their text messages from say, Sprint? Is it possible, is there a time limit or fee?

Thanks for any knowledge out there!

The texting service they used was a specific company that deals with corporations and government agencies where messages are saved on a server.

Standard cell phone texts are nothing more then data when flying through the air. The only place with a record of them is the phone they are sent/received. If they are deleted then there is absolutely no way for them to be tracked down.

This is from an article posted on Jan. 26, 08 on Fox News
"I think people can feel comfortable we're not storing information that can later be used against them," Verizon Wireless spokeswoman Erica Sevilla said. "Unless you have something stored on your phone or on a recipients' phone, it does not stay on our network for a long period."

"AT&T Inc. keeps text messages for up to 72 hours until delivery is successful, spokesman Howard Riefs said. If a message can't be delivered, it is removed from the system and can't be retrieved."

Thanks for the information. I don't know what she is going to do about the situation.
