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.

1) You shouldnt be married. If you distrust your husband that much, you have issues. Why not try talking to him? If nothing is going on, congrats, you have successfully done something he should now be distrustful of you for.
2) this falls under wiretapping laws under many states and aside from this being unethical, it is more than likely illegal without his permission. Congrats on your level of psycho.

I think she was just asking for technical information. I don't see where she asked for your opinion.

Re: iCloud
Why would someone want to technically inform someone how to break the law? If people are going to put this nonsense out there, they will get those types of responses.

Re: iCloud
The anon poster who called op psycho has obviously never been cheated on by someone they love and trusted, and does not understand the mental stress and cognitive debilitation caused by being betrayed, gas lighted, and lied to. It tests one's ability to understand what is reality, and what isn't. So call her psycho if you want, but it could be a normal reaction to an abnormal situation where a person's sense of reality and their ability to trust becomes undermined by a betraying "best friend."

Re: iCloud - This reply is creepy to the bone

This reply is abnormal at best. There is absolutely NO reason or justification for breaking federal and state wiretapping laws. You have no idea the amount of psychological damage, financial damage and well being of a person you destroy by gps tracking, hacking, wiretapping or violating any other federal and state laws. Don't like your spouse, well grow up, talk it over face to face, get a divorce, divide everything equally - including the time with the kids and be an adult and move on with your life. All you are doing is creating the worst every possible environment to be in post divorce, especially if you have kids.

You sound like you are on drugs. Most people who do this stuff are having their own multiple affairs and NEVER at ANY time or for ANY reason let someone else see their own private emails. I googled gas lighting and I have to say, congratulations, you have just thrown out a web md type of diagnosis on something you don't understand. Gas lighting is based off an alfred hitchock movie. There is nothing normal about bringing up gas lighting as a "normal" reaction to anything. Sounds like to me that this reply is coming from someone who was likely abused as a child and lost reality long ago. I would also assume that once the court system takes action against the federal and state laws that were broken you would cry foul and claim some sort of inside job was going on driven by your ex in the courts. Using the same logic to justify breaking the law - because you are so special that the law just doesn't apply to you.

Everyone on here needs to grow up. Stop hacking your girlfriends, boyfriends, wives, husbands. Our who civilization has forgotten how to actually be in a relationship with someone because you are all attached to your "smart" phones. This is absolutely sick how many people want to know how to monitor their other spouse, without them knowing. I'll say it again, grow up.

Re: iCloud - This reply is creepy to the bone

Sounds to me like YOU need to grow up and get off of this forum. No one here asked for your opinion or for the laws that may prohibit this. I looked this up because my man and I have a no secrets rule and we want to be able to see each other's info as a form of proving such trust. Furthermore, for you to state she sounds like she is on drugs is a form of decimation of character and IS most definitely makes you accountable for any harm your slander causes.

That being said, TALKING to your significant other is THE BEST way to get the truth. If you've been with that person for any amount of time you can tell when they are lying. If you suspect a lie, confront it then and there and ask your spouse to see their phone that moment. If there are no incriminating texts there you will be opening up a whole different can of worms for your lack of trust.

Re: iCloud - This reply is creepy to the bone
You are a Creeper!!! Federal law prohibits all wire tapping and data breach. If you and your man (if you even have one) are that "tight" with a "no secrets" rule then you should each have each other's passwords and not need to PIRATE AND HACK into someone elses systems. You are a perfect example of a nucklehead. The first reply was right - you and everyone else on here needs to grow up.

Re: iCloud - This reply is creepy to the bone
Federal law prohibits wiretapping---I haven't EVER wire tapped or anything other of the sort. And for your information I do have a man with a no secrets rule. Sounds like someone is jealous of that fact. The only reason I started getting these emails about this forum (which I am about to unsubscribe to) is because of someone else who needed to grow up and used my phone and email to be shady with her man. Now Mr. Green With Envy grow up. Why are you on here just to dog people out. Sounds like someone is so lonely they have to make conversation and a argue with people they have no clue as to who they are. Poor little baby.

Re: iCloud - This reply is creepy to the bone

Just throwing this out there. But some should REALLY check up on their state laws. In Ohio, it is perfectly OK to record someone without their knowledge, the state rules this as the '1 party-consent' rule, as long as 1 person is aware of it taking place then it is legal.

Just for those who doubt...

"Ohio's wiretapping law is a "one-party consent" law. Ohio law makes it a crime to intercept or record any "wire, oral, or electronic communication" unless one party to the conversation consents. Ohio Rev. Code § 2933.52. Thus, if you operate in Ohio, you may record a conversation or phone call if you are a party to the conversation."

and...

Additionally, consent is not required for oral communications (e.g., in-person conversations) where the speakers does not have a reasonable expectation of privacy in the communication. See Ohio Rev. Code § 2933.51. This means that you are free to record a conversation happening between two people in a public place such as a street or a restaurant, so long as you are not using sensitive recording equipment to pick up what you otherwise would not hear. "

and...

"Federal law permits recording telephone calls and in-person conversations with the consent of at least one of the parties. See 18 you.S.C. 2511(2)(d). This is called a "one-party consent" law. Under a one-party consent law, you can record a phone call or conversation so long as you are a party to the conversation."

Slightly O/T to the original topic, but just putting this out there...

If your married all of the property between the couple is THEIRS not his or hers. Second of all if you wish to judge someone you might want to take a good long look at your own life. You are by no means perfect in any way. Third of all please do us all a favor and get a life or take your judgemental comments to Facebook. We don't care about your opinion about anyone.

Re: iCloud spying
I agree with those who recommend using another technology, like face-to-face conversation, to deal with these issues. If you are spying on your boyfriend/girlfriend husband/wife because s/he might be cheating, you do not have trust already and may as well just hang it up or establish trust. Spying is not going to help in anyway and will likely be the end of the relationship whether s/he was cheating or not.

Re: iCloud
Why are you judging people? Who are you to say anything to anyone especially a stranger? And you are calling her psycho?? Get a life of your own and grow up. However as far as talking with her husband I agree this step needs to be taken.

Re: iCloud: A Cheater's Nightmare

Awesome assumptions.
1) If her husband is cheating or doing any other immoral misconduct, and she has tried to talk to him about it but he continues to lie, then his right to privacy has been compromised. She has the right to know the truth if she is being cheated on, whichever way she finds out.
2) A woman's gut instinct is usually always right.
3) Why is a woman so quickly labeled "psycho" for this behavior but a man takes much more than that.
4) If the person you loved was cheating on you and lying, wouldn't you feel the right to know, however that may be you have to find out?
Congratulations, dick.

Re: iCloud: A Cheater's Nightmare
I've done the same things, for my iphone and ipad and my messages aren't showing up on the ipad, could someone explain how to get the conversations to show up?
hubby
Re: iCloud: A Cheater's Nightmare

Restart the iPad. If your iMessages messages still arent showing up, you have missed a step.
The basic steps are:
1) make sure that all devices are configured with, and signed into the same icloud account
2) associate your iPhone telephone number with your icloud account (in your iphone iMessage settings)
3) make sure that the send/receive iCloud accounts/settings are the same on all devices in their iMessage settings

Only imessages are syncd, not TXT or SMS messages.
Only new imessages sent/received from the time you setup the device are synced (the entire history of iMessages will not be synced)

hubby
Setup other icloud account on my iPhone

• 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?? - At the top of that screen, make sure his Apple ID is entered. if it isnt, click it, select Sign-Out, and then Click it again to sign in with his Apple ID

• 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?? - After you are signed in to iMessage with his apple ID, it should show his Apple ID email address. People can send iMessages via email address.

• 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??? - He will not see it, BUT when he upgrades to iOS6, if you are logged into his iCloud it may automatically pop up a message on his phone asking if he wants to add your phone to iMessage and FaceTime.

• finally after logging in as him and adjusting all settings if I simply open the messages app should all his messages be there?? - Only messages that have not been deleted, and new incoming/outgoing messages will be shown..

The only flaw in your logic that I see (other than trying to snoop on your husband without his knowledge that I shan't comment on) is that until he gets iOS6, you wont be able to see iMessages sent directly to his humber. If someone sends him an iMessage to his email you will see it. The other thing to keep in mind is that no matter what, you will only see his iMessages, and not his SMS/MMS messages.
