Re: How to get Text Message Records?

Im with you if Sprint can give me dates, times and numbers in the call log they should be able to give me the same for text messages and the content. If the police can get it I should be able to access the same info since I am the one paying the bill.

Re: How to get Text Message Records?

AT&T has it. its about less then an hour behind.It shows date,time,and phone number. You cant see no texts tho.. You figure it just a standard with all wireless companies, to be able to check your usage and to be able to see if your kids are texting in the middle of the night...

GGRREENN66,

   Thanks for reaching out! You can definitely check your usage online. I apologize you will not be able to view the text messages that are sent nor the time, as we don't provide this information.

Re: How to get Text Message Records?

What a joke..I just paid $5 to get the form notarized and now I have to wait 7-10 days for information that SHOULD be in my call log?  That is absolutely disgusting.  Someone is using a stolen phone on my account and I need to know who they are texting.  Thanks for nothing Sprint!  Lookout didn't work because golly gee, all they have to do is a hard reset on your phone and they can use the phone all they want but lookout won't work.  Android device manager won't work once they log out of your google account.  Thanks for making it so convenient for people to use stolen phones...

Having a device stolen is no a pleasant experience.  I’d like to assist.  Are you aware you can call or chat in and report the device stolen?  Additionally, we (Social Care) can also flag the device stolen for you as well.  Doing so will basically immobilize the device and make it unusable.    If this is something you do not want to do, please let us know exactly why reporting the device stolen is not feasible for you.

Re: How to get Text Message Records?

I have reported the phone stolen with Sprint, so I assume they did whatever they do to "immobilize it". I waited to do that because the thief was using the phone to text, I wanted to get a log of the text numbers to turn over to the police since they will not initiate any investigation of a stolen phone on their own.  I am just appalled that in order to get those records I had to pay to have a sworn affidavit notarized and now I have to wait 2 weeks. No one can convince me that there is any reason at all for that nonsense. Most carriers and several Sprint MVNO's show a record of text numbers on the phone bill.  And apparently even though I am trying to get these records to catch a thief that make no difference to Sprint they are certainly dragging their feet on getting me these records.

Re: How to get Text Message Records?

yes, I received it- thank you for asking. But the idea that I had to drive across town, pay a notary $5 in order to get information regarding text messages on my account, something that NO other cell service provider requires just infuriates me. Unfortunately Sprint Corporate insulates itself so well from customer comments that I am sure that the policy will never change.
