Hello, regarding this topics title, no I do not wish to know this in regards to the new problem with 'S exting'. This is just out of general curiosity. Is their any possible way that my parents who pay for my phone are able to view my sent or recieved messages (Text and MMS)
Are there any programs I should be aware of?
Are they able to be viewed via ATT online?
Thank you in advance and please be honest. (This does not include being able to see them through a court order or federal mandate)

They can check their online account and see the phone numbers and dates and times that the texts or MMS were sent and received but not the content of them.
If you have a smartphone, there may be apps out there, where they can monitor what you're sending and receving but I don't know too much about those, even though I have read about them.
Other than that, they would have to physically look at your phone. If you aren't sending or receiving anything you shouldn't be sending, then what are you worried about? Your parents have every right to monitor your texts and MMS if they're concerned for you.

Other than that, no, what Dcookie said is correct, only numbers and times are visible on the bill or online.
Not quite. There ARE INDEED 3rd party programs that allow for this sort of monitoring. Said software solutions exist for both Android and iOS platforms (I'm not too sure as to whether or not any exist for WinPhone 7.x/8).
