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.

Yes . By default, if you are both using the same iCloud account in your Messaging settings, you will both see and get each other's iMessages. To also get his text messages he has to go into his Messages settings and add your phone to his "text forwarding" settings.

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages
Well it didn't happen that was I got two phones and used my Apple ID first then he couldn't get into he's so I put in mine but we have never gotten each other's text messages I want to know if he's cheating so I need to know how I can look at he's messages but he says has he's phone so there's no way I can get a hold of it is there any other way ? I've tried all the stupid spy stuff and nothing is free

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages
I think someone has logged into my Apple account. On three separate occasions this person has sent me text messages which show to come from their old phone (which is now being used by another family member) the old phone received the exact same text but it appeared to be coming from me which I did not send . My iPhone is not associated by account or Apple Account to those two devices. How is this happening?

Can you add another apple ID to your iMessage account

My kids have been using our iPad and I realized that the iMessages between my husband and myself show up on the iPad (usually talking about them). So, I created a separate Apple ID specifically so they can use iMessage and Facetime with their friends and we don't have to worry about them seeing our texts to each other. However, now we can't see what they're texting to their friends without looking on the iPad. It was really nice being able to see what they were texting when we shared the same ID (it would show up on my laptop and on my iPhone)

What I'd like to know is, can I add another Apple ID to my laptop and iPhone so that I can still see their text messages, but they can't see what I text?

Yes that shouldn't be a problem just add your kids email to your iPhone. Under iMessage

This person clearly has no idea what they are talking about and is totally wrong.

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages
The only way to see past messages is to look on a device that received those messages, and has not yet deleted them. To see new messages, you will have to configure the Messages App on an iPhone, iPad, or Mac with the iCloud user-name and account. Be aware that when you do this, pop-up messages will be sent to all other devices using that account so the account owner knows what's happening.

Are you sure? What about back-up? Even if messages are deleted won't they be restored?

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages

you would need a backup that was made while the message was on the device. If the backup was made after the message was deleted, it would not be restored because it would be gone at the time the backup was created.

Re: how do I see my boyfriend's messages?
You will need an extra ios device. If you want to see his saved messages you can restore a backup made from his apple id. Or if you want to send messages through his number/account just login in through settings->messages->Send&Receive and login into apple id.

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages
Couldn't you just grab an old iphone, wipe everything off it, then on the reboot sign in as the other party? Sure notifications would blast out but if there was a moment in time when you could have all the devices together and 'dismiss' your added device notifications you'd be golden.

Re: iMessage
Change your password... He obviously saw you punch in your 4-digit password and memorized it for later. Delete is email and change your password and in the future be mindful of where you leave your phone and when.

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages

So what if there are two of us on same iTunes account and email but I have turned of iCloud on my device. Will that stop messages being sent to the other person. Also what's the difference turned off iMessages in settings.
Will i still receive texts as normal?

Re: How do I get someone else's iMessages

If iCloud is fully turned off, you will not be able to send or receive any iMessages (be sure that Messages are also off, in settings!)
If only Messages is turned off, you will no longer be able to send or receive any iMessages, but all other iCloud services will still work.
Turning off Messages does not affect regular TXT messages.
