How to Read My Boyfriend's Text Messages Without His Phone(Update)

Last Updated on December 1, 2022 by Jason Ben

My boyfriend is weird recently! He was hiding his phone from me in a flurry every time when I stepped out of the bathroom. His phone rang continuously in the last two weeks, especially at night, and it was always messages from the same number. Last night, I finally made up my mind to look into it and was surprised that my boyfriend deleted all the text messages. There must be something! Help me! -- Grace

You may attempt to recover deleted text messages from iTunes or iCloud if he is an iPhone user. What if he uses Android Phone? You may first backup the messages on his smartphone and read them later with Android Data Backup & Restore. Unfortunately, the deleted messages could only be recovered with his Android Phone.

If He Use iPhone (You can read his text messages without his phone):
