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.

You can get on your mac or apple device, go to messages, if you know his password and email you can log in to his account which will allow you to read all of his current iMessages that he is getting and so fourth

You can't prevent it. That is a feature to protect her privacy from people like you.

All I can say is wow.. Whether it's against the law to sneak into someone else's internet accounts to maliciously obtain sensitive information (it is- and that doesn't qualify as "recording someone's spoken conversation, either) it's just wrong. If you think someone is cheating on you, ask them! Direct questions! If you know they're lying to you, you need to leave. If you Think they're lying to you, you also need to leave, because you obviously don't trust this person. Trust is everything. They trust that you won't creep, like a thief in the night, into their account info and read what was said in confidence. It's just not your place to do so..

Please for the love of our unholy master Satan, and sweet sweet baby Jesus- if you feel the need to peek behind the curtain, you deserve to be alone. At least until you find someone that wouldn't cheat or sext or hide things from you. Don't you deserve someone you can trust?

But God knows, you're not going to take my advice. You'd rather fight it out. So be it.

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages

Jeeeesus Lawd that is some funny shit. I actually found this thread because I'm trying to figure out how my psycho husband is still able to check my phone number on his computer to gain access to further controlling any ability to finally leave this shit in the dust.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. Unfortunately I need the reverse post - probably posted in Opposite World where I've been this whole time.

Best to you & your journeys.

shared icloud account

My ex wife recently had her phone deleted and has had to re set it all up. when doing so she has logged on to icloud on her phone using my apple id.
since then I have had notifications come up on my phone saying her phone is using my mobile number for imessage however none of her imessages have been showing up on my iphone. does this mean she can see all of my imessages. and if so how as I have looked to see how it works but I can not see hers so I am hoping she can not see mine.

thanks

To access iMessages you need the Apple ID and password.

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages
Can texts using third party texting apps like vonage or what's app be found with recovery software or any other way after they are deleted? Is there anyway to text and then delete and not worry about someone being able to find it?

Re: How do I get someone else's text messages
It is very possible that those messages could be recovered - there are many variables. Basically, without doing a full, secure erase of your phone every time you delete something, or without "filling" the storage and then emptying it after deleting something, anything has the potential for being recovered.

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.

You can't. When it's gone, it's gone.

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?

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages
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.

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages
I shared an Apple ID & they couldn't get my messages but any app either of us got went on to the others device. So apps we're shared but not messages. But you can delete the app from your device without affecting the other.

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages
If you werent getting iMessages then you did it wrong. You need to go to Settings, Messages and add the account and phone info there. If you delete an app that was downloaded because of iCloud sharing, it will not affect the other device.

Re: How do I get someone else's 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.

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.
