Re: Can my dad view my messages online

If there's anything on your phone that you DON'T want your dad to see, I'd suggest to DELETE those messages and not to do anything to make your dad suspiciuous of you in the first place. That way you wouldn't have to worry about it.

 

The only way he can see your messages would be to check them from your phone itself.

Yes, given that you have an Android phone.  Software can be installed which will automatically forward your messages in the background.

I don't believe the OP specified what type of device he/she is using.

The OP's post said it was posted from a Samsung SGH-I897.

On the other side of the coin, if you do delete the messages. Then your dad compare the bill's text message log to the messages on your phone and finds you come up short, he could have reason to take the phone away. By hiding it, you are abuse the privilege of having the phone.

Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

Dcookie - That's interesting; maybe there's a browser dependency.  Here's what I see in the OP:

Posted from Samsung SGH-I897

(Your post shows that you have a Samsung Nexus S)

The "Posted from..." signature only is viewable on the desktop version of the community.

And mine is wrong.

no he can not do this. in the text log in ONLY shows the phone numbers the text messages came from.

 

 

no offence here.

maybe you if did not do stuff to make your dad mistrust you would not have this problem.   but he can not do this. the messages are only stored on your cell phone.
