SOLUTION: View Text Messages

Question

 How can I view my text messages?

Answer

  1. You can easily download a record of phone numbers you've sent text messages to up to 90 days in the past.  Go online to Sprint.com/viewbill, click on the Calls/Texts link. This record can be printed out or saved.  
  2. Text Message content (the actual words or pictures contained in a text message) is not stored by Sprint.  Deleted texts cannot be retrieved, read online or requested through subpoena.  
  3. To obtain Text Message number records more than than 90 days in the past, contact Sprint directly.  You may be asked to provide certain legal documentation showing that you are the account holder in order to request and obtain this information.  Please remember: content of text messages is not available through this process.
  4. Most devices store text message contents for a certain number of messages or a certain period of time unless you manually delete them from your device.  Depending on your model of phone and operating system, look for an icon on the home screen titled "Messages", if you cannot find it, then look for Apps, and then look thru your list of Apps for Messages.
  5. There are various apps available from the Google Play or the Apple App store that will store your text message history (including contents) and save them to a cloud or SD card.  Try searching 'save text messages' for options.

Here is a way to get the details you want, Dial *4, Then choose 4 for just your phone's usage, Then 2 to have it sent to your phone as a text.

If you have questions about text messaging pease check out the Text Messaging TKB, for the most recent answers!

That link does not answer my question. It does not talk about pictures sent/received thru text.
it does however state that they dont store the actual text itself sent or received..which im giong out on a limb here and thinking if they dont keep your actual worded texts they for sure dont save your sent and received pics.
however there might be a 3rd party app that you can have on both phones so anything he gets so do you. possibly..you might have to do a bit of digging on that one.

This is correct.  Pictures sent as Text or SMS are content, therefore, not stored.
