    Now I know this is kina ****ed up but .... , I have a girlfriend who has a iphone 3gs with i4 update

    last few weeks she has been acting suspect - im about to move in with her
    but before I let her I wanna know what is going on .

    I have access to her phone at breif periods ie when she sleeps or leaves it for 5 mins .

    Im prepared to pay someone if needed to help me with this .

    What would the best way to get her deleted text messages be

    I was thinking back up her phone to my computer and then use the files to find the deleted text messages

    I saw this program

    http://riactant.wordpress.com/2009/09/09/iphone-sms-retriever-utility-for-windows/ and followed all steps on their to get it to work but it wont .

    Either that or back up the files to my computer and restore them to a blank iphone I have any help will be appreciated / and or rewarded

    Also a program where I can remove the pass code to her phone wold also help

    Thanks

    thanks

    You have no business moving in with that girl because you are a creep. Try talking to her?

    I'd help but then my ability to hit that might come to an end..

    Backing up and restoring isn't going to bring back deleted text messages unless they hadn't been deleted at the time of the backup and that still doesn't get you around the passcode..

    Dude, you don't trust her therefore you shouldn't be in a relationship with her, let alone move in together. Talk to her. If you don't get the answers you need then break it off. Otherwise suck it up, be a man and TRUST HER!! If you don't trust her then there's no relationship worth saving

    if you don't know the answer to "is she a hoe?" without digging through her deleted text messages, you aren't ready to move in together. Unless of course she thinks you will be just room mates....

    While I agreed you seen like a creep and should talk to her instead of doing this (IMO your relationship is already doom, but what do i Know).

    Easiest way is to backup the phone to your computer... them use iPhone Backup Extractor to extract the SMS.db which is a SQlite database, and them you can use SQLite Database Browser to read it. You will find all the txt that haven't been hard erased by the DFU restore.

    I would expect my $150 paypal to me as soon as you are reading that database :D:D:D, or the phone number of you Ex if you find something bad on her texts :eek:

    Everything is normal in our relationship

    other than she acts weird with her phone and will leave it no where almost
    she hides it and has a pass code on it so I just wanna know if something is going on period . Im not the angry type I just need to know so I can either move on or nothing at all is wrong and shes just a bit cooky

    I would be very grateful to anyone who can help

    Reading her SMS is NOT going to help in any way, you should let her know that you don't trust her and if that is not solve you should can't move in with her. If more people would be open and honest from the get go, we would have more happy couples... (and there it is my advice of the day :cool:)


    I just edited my last post with the link.

    Your exactly right I have been totally open from day 1
    I try asking why she does it and she accuses me of being paranoid and not trusting her , Ive talked to a few friends and explained the situation in detail and they agree checking her phone is probably the best thing to do .

    I know reading on here it might sound crazy If I wrote the whole situation out it might take a few hours ,

    All I need is to put my mind at ease im not some creep or weirdo .

    Thanks

    It's ok man, you don't really have to explain, we are just giving you a hard time, I am sure you got your reasons, IMO is the wrong way to start (or take the next step) on a relationship. But if you think that it can help, go for it. To me respect and Trust are the base or nay relationship, friendship, work, etc, even Forums relationship (the more respectful and trusting you are, the better responses you get), and based on the little information you had shared you guys are lacking of both.

    in any case, you got the tools now, so just for the sake of the Thread let us know what happend ;)

    My phone is passcode protected and it never leaves my side. Does that mean I'm cheating on my husband?

    He'd laugh his ass off if you asked him that.

    He knows better. The phone is passcoded so if I lose it, some dishonest twit who finds it has to go online to figure out how to break into it. That gives me time to go to FindMyiPhone and wipe it.

    Seriously, if trust her so little, break it off. Your relationship isn't "normal" if you don't trust her on something this small. Either you have other issues personally, or she's given you other reasons to think she's lying. Either way, the relationship is going nowhere. Get out while you're not tied together financially and don't waste your time with her phone.

    Ya I agree. Leave the guy alone. This guy didn't ask you to help him with a relationship. Anyone ever heard of to each their own. Just because your relationship is one way doesn't mean it has to be like that for everyone. Maybe he just wants to put his mind at ease.

    Anyway man, you can't really check her messages this way but you can see the number she is checking by looking at her phone records. Might not be able to get it right away but if you can figure out her password to get into her account online you can at least she the numbers she is texting and the time. Hope this helps a little. And yes please update us with what you find. :p

    FYI--what you want to do is a crime in many jurisdictions, and it's a felony at that. Might want to think it through. Or at least start checking the laws in your area.

    I've been in your shoes and have the divorce papers from the starter marriage to prove it. Once you're at the point of having to check up on someone, it's over. Sucks, no doubt about it. Best of luck to you regardless of what you decide.

    is she a hot brazilian lingerie model by any chance? if not then you are scary....
    You could ASK her to see her txt's from the cellphone's bill records if you really feel the need to know...

    Save your $150 for moving out expenses.

    There is no chance in one million that this relationship is gonna work.

    If not the phone thing, wait till the next hiccup comes, no discussions, just anger.

    Move on :cool: Think with the big head, not the little head :eek:

    You're welcome, Dear Abby !
