Currently, Sprint.com does not offer SMS text message logs for CDMA (Sprint) customers. Nextel (IDEN) customers have other options. If you need to get your SMS or Text Message history from Sprint, you can follow these simple steps:
Please note -- Due to privacy concerns, we don't store any text message content, which is the actual text of the message sent between you and someone else.
You can find out a *lot* more about the privacy issues in this excellent blog post by Claudia about Text Message Details and Content
However, we do keep record of text message details, which includes the date, time and phone number of your text messages. The process to obtain these sensitive message details varies by the type of phone you have because our services are carried over different network platforms that record and store information differently.
If you are the account holder or authorized contact for your business account, you can request text message details (date, time and phone number) for any line on your account for the previous 90 days.
To obtain text message details, please contact Sprint Corporate Security at (800) 877-7330 and choose option 3 for Historic Records Requests. They will send you a form to complete, notarize and return to us. The text messaging details you request will be sent once we receive your notarized form.
If your request is related to a civil or criminal legal matter, your attorney can submit a subpoena for the information on your behalf.
Nextel Direct Connect
Certain phones with Nextel Direct Connect services and 2-way Multimedia Messaging (MMS) capabilities enable you to store and retrieve your own text messages, pictures and videos that include the date, time and to/from details in your inbox on sprint.com.
To make sure sent and received messages are not deleted from your personal inbox, you need to change your settings:
- Sign in to My Sprint and select the My preferences tab
- Select Deleting Messages
- Choose the option Do not delete messages after I receive them on my phone
