Unfortunately cell phone companies are not able to show the text within a message, however you are able to obtain an itemized cell phone bill, that show how many as well as what time text messages were sent to a particular number and whether they were multimedia messages, ie messages containing photos.

The only way to read the text within the message would be to look at the phone itself.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
