receiving the actual content of text messages...
My friend says that she had the content of her husband's text messages faxed to her (26 pages) and that AT&T advised her they would have to send the rest of the messages via mail because they were "too explicit" to send by fax.  She has no court order.  How is this possible, when I called to retrieve the content of text messages from my own phone, the AT&T representative advised me that the content is not recorded and not available to customers for ANY reason!  Can you help me understand how she could obtain all of that information, and the same information does not appear to be available to me?

I would ask your friend about the exact procedure she followed to obtain these. Everything I've heard so far about getting the content of the text messages is that it's impossible without a court order.
