So, Since this is the excuse we always recieve, Can you point me to where this is in writing on sprint.com AND the FCC ruling that states it? And why is it available to "Nextel" customers and not "Sprint"? If I send or recieve a text why would I need a subponia to view a hard copy of it? What's the "Real" reason?
The real reason is that Sprint just doesn't want to do it. They don't want to take the time for it. I posted a post a couple days ago about the text message logs and some of the providers that carry it. You know what I think is funny is that Sprints own Customer Service Reps. don't even use Sprint. That should tell us all something. I have been complaining about this issue sice I switched over from the Nextel side. I am only requesting the phone numbers even and Nextel you can read the whole messages and also with Sprint yo9u can view all the Picture mail sent and recieved including the phone numbers so it is all a line of bull when they say privacy issues plus no other carriers would be able to provide it. They used to say the same thing about you actual phone call log also and now we can finnaly view that online. even if we could just get it at the end of our billing cycle on our bill that would be better than not seeing it at all. Some of us like to see the numbers our kids are texting back and forth with.
you actually used to be able to with sprint about 4 or 5 years ago. i was able to prove my boyfriend wrong when he'd say "i never said i'd go to the movies this weekend" even if i had deleted his "ok" from my phone.
it is quite stupid that you no longer can. My assumption is, someone on the decision making end of this with sprint probably has something to hide from their spouse
Or maybe its because some one before sued because personal information was sent via text message and a copy of it was stored in records. Problem is there is always going to be someone who ruins it for everyone else. If i were a business I would be trying to protect myself from a lawsuit because some dummy wants easy money. Personally I would love to see the feature because it makes it easier to see what you forgot.
We do not ever want the ability to go back and read someone elses texts (spouse, child, whoever..). Would you want someone going back and replaying a voice conversation you had with someone over the phone that may have been private? Probably not! It is the same concept. Things "said", texted or spoken, between two parties should stay private between the parties. If you are wanting to catch someone cheating, or lying, or whatever, then maybe you should start by having a good 'ole face to face conversation with this person. If you think they are keeping the truth from you, then do you really need a text to prove it?! Come on!
sadly..people (i.e. spouses) have been known to Lie.... Reading their text might be a bit shallow but there might be a few safty concerns invovled with 1 or more addictions of of mates...s.t.d.s, drugs... leaving of ones children with unknown persons to which a child could harmed...all because they had a way of being secretive, but not enough to go out and work and pay for thier own phone with their own money! just maybe ...u know a thought..!?
