Which phone?

 

If it's a windows phone 8 device, sms messages may optionally be backed up in the linked microsoft outlook.com web site.

The text messages are backed up; however, they are not accessible from any website. They are backed up so they will restore to a new phone (or a wiped phone). If the text message is deleted on the phone it will also be deleted from the backup in the cloud.

If you need to get copies of the texts you will need to make sure your child doesn't delete them. On a WP8 device you can take a screenshot (press the power button and Windows/Home button at the same time). Or, it just might be easier to take a pic or video of the text messages using another camera or phone.

 

Good luck with dealing with the bully.

Actually, in windows 8 you can see old sms messages on the user's linked micrsoft account in hotmail, if the "backup SMS messages" option is enabled

 

Log into outlook.com with the phone's microsoft account, click Message History on the left side, and then add &as=1 to the end of the URL in the address bar and press return. You'll see the SMS messages you've sent/reciveved - this isn't a supported feature of outlook.com, but you can (sometimes!) see what you're looking for there.

Interesting. Where did you find out about this?

On  another windows phone forum. It seems to be a feature that Microsoft isn't quite sure they want to expose - but the SMS messages are backed up/restored when you move to a new device, so they are clearly saved off device. There just isn't any "offical" support for viewing them.

If you don't mind me asking, which forum? Others might be interested as well.
