No, there isn't.

If find it hard to believe that we can not check our text messages from the site.  We can see everything else, why not text messages.  I'm of the same mind.  A lot of times I am at work and unable to receive text messages on my phone and would love to be able to look them up via the AT&T/Cingular site.

     I see it as them not allowing it, because if anyone knows your online passcode, then they are able to get in to your online account and see your sms that you are getting and sending, that there would cause alot more problems than it does now with them not allowing it to be seen online.

Wikipedia defines text messages as "Short Message Service (SMS) is a communications protocol allowing the interchange of short text messages between mobile telephony devices. " Key words here are "mobile telephony devices." If you are unable to use you cell at work use email or get a software application to hook you cell phone to your computer and you can read text messages that way. In short, test messages are between cell phones, not cell phones and computers

If you have a Nokia, and Bluetooth on your computer, and PC Suite, then you can read them without touching your phone.

You can't view the transcripts of your conversations on the site either Smiley Wink You can see all the billable instances of text messaging — when the message was sent/received and the source or destination, but not the content.

Download & install Nokia PC Suite and walk through the wizard to connect your phone to PC. Then click the appropriate items in the program to access text messages.

You can't find Nokia PC Suite?

 

Here is the link to the Nokia website support pages where you can obtain it (free download) -

I don't have the PC Suite installed anymore, so I can't give you a screen shot. The main PC Suite window has a number of different items (represented by icons) for various tasks like Backup, Media, Contacts, etc. One of them should be for messages.

If you have paired the phone before, it may just be asking the permission to connect, otherwise it may also need the PIN setup. Here's the screen shot of the PC Suite — clicking the yellow envelope will open the window with messages.
