How do I get someone else's iMessages

Sorry if Iv been asked this 1000 times but I really need to get this right.. Both my hudband and I have iPhones and iCloud accounts I am ios6 he is ios5. I need to see his text messages but I don't want him to know. I know his iCloud login details but I have some concerns! From reading some of your other posts I gather that on the new ios6 system if I log in to my husbands iCloud account he will receive a message on his iPhone "Mary's phone has been added to your iCloud account" I think I have got around this by changing my phones name in settings to my husbands name "Paul's Phone" so am I right in assuming now if such a message does appear on his phone it will look like his own phone has been added to his iCloud account.... "Paul's phone has been added to your iCloud account"
•Next there is the whole issue of actually getting to see his sent and recieved messages. I go into settings and under messages and where it says send and receive with my phone number as default I click in there then it gives the option to enter apple id for imessages so I put his email here??
•Then below where it says you can be reached by iMessage at and it shows a tic beside my phone number and below the option to add an email address what to I do here??
• Also after I change all these settings if someone sends me a message to my number (either mms or imessage) while I'm logged in as him will he see it???
• finally after logging in as him and adjusting all settings if I simply open the messages app should all his messages be there??
I really appreciate any help you can give in helping me do this without him knowing and sorry again if your repeating yourself.

How do i know if someone can read my iMessages?
Recently my friend used my iPhone and logged into to find my "iPhone app" and he signed into to his account and then he had my contacts does it mean he can read my messages too?

iMessage alert
How can I see the last alert when another device was used to access my iMessages? I received an alert the other day and would like to view it again.

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages
If 4 devices share the same iTunes ID and password would all the devices receive an imessage that was sent or received or do you have to have an icloud account for them to sync?

They all have to have the same iCloud password setup in the Messages settings.

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages
So the devices could send and receive imessages if they are on the same iTunes ID and password without worrying about each other seeing the other person's imessages just as long as they don't share the same icloud ID and password? I'm just trying to be super clear on this since I read an article stating that sharing an iTunes ID and password would share imessages.

No..
It's the account used in the Messages settings that matters.. If the accounts used in the "Messages" settings are the same, they will see/send each others messages.

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages
So how could you set it up so that all the devices could share purchases of music and apps but have privacy as far as imessages and facetime?

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages

You have one App store/Apple/iTunes account, shared.
You have one iCloud account, that you keep private.

In the App store settings, enter the shared App store account info.
In the Messages settings, enter the private iCloud account info..

How do I make sure he isn't receiving my messages
My ex husband and I are going through a divorce, and my phone was still linked to his iCloud account. When I got a new iphone i put in the iTunes password for his iCloud account, because we have never had seperate. Previously, on my old phone it never sent my messages to his iphone, but when I got a new phone it showed up with his email to deliver imessages. I immediately unchecked it, but now I'm concerned that on his devices it will show my phone number and he will be able to see my imessages. I already got a new iCloud account, so I am just wondering if he can still see them.

Make sure that your account is entered in the icloud settings and in the Messages settings.

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages

Hi there, sorry to revive an old thread but I am needing some help. My husband is paranoid and accusing me of cheating. I've given him my Facebook password and iTunes account password. I deleted my iCloud account because I'm not tech savvy and don't understand how it all works and haven't needed it. I told him that he was welcome to log in at any time and see that I am not in fact cheating. I have some questions though.

Do an iTunes and an iCloud account work the same? Can he access my iMessages by logging in to my iTunes account on his computer, iPad and/or iPhone? How does that work? Or is the iCloud account the only thing that stores the iMessages? If he configures my account on his phone, will he automatically just start receiving all my iMessages? Can he tell who they come from? View their phone number etc? How far will the messages go back? And will I definitely receive a pop-up notification on my phone if he logs in via iTunes? Sorry to sound dense but I've never really been good at any of this and am not sure of what he can actually see and how I will be able to know what he's actually logging into. Thanks so much for your help. We both have iPhone 5 and iPads.

If that helps. Oh, and ios7.

If you deleted your icloud account, you have no imessages.

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages
Now at the time, I did just test something, and I will post results tomorrow, but one way I believe you can send (maybe receive) is on IOS 7 iPhone 5c is go on your Settings|Phone|My Number, then just change the number to whoever's number you want. I will post a reply to this so you can know whether it works or not.

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages

Simple answer: NO
Less simple answer: But if he has your iCloud username and password he can read your iMessages. To understand the difference between txt messages and iMessages see this page: what's the difference between iMessages and text messages?

Is it illegal to configure a device to read your spouse's text messages if they don't know about it?

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages
My son's phone number was recently "unchecked" on my iphone and I know longer get his imessages. If I "recheck" his number will he be notified? I'm not adding a new number, it's already there. I don't want him to know I can see them.

Re: How do I get my wife's iMessages
My wife and I share an iTunes account , lately she is acting funny and I suspect the worst...I want to check her iMessages without being caught. We haven't backed up either iPhone in a few months but she is using iCloud . Can I access it on our PC without her knowing ?

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages

Hi,

I know someone had access to my iMessages.. Is it possible for them to get in any other way without my apple id or even password?

Thanks
