Text History

I'm a newbee! First Message! I have been told that you can trace content and number of text recipient? Is this true? Apparently you can download some kind of software that if installed can trace who you have text and what was said??? Surely not? Also can someone help me set a password? These are probably often asked questions but I cannot find them on the forum anywhere.

Who is it you are wanting to spy on?

Re: Text History

Well, if you're referring to Device lock password... yes, this is how you do..>>

 

goto Options > Security Options > General Settings >  Password : enable... 

 

Note: make sure, you have set the maximum number of password attempts to : 10 (the maximum).. coz, If you failed to type the password properly, the device will get wiped out (which means, it'll erase the whole data) :smileywink:

 

And the software you're talking about.. I've no idea... coz, I still didn't understand what are you upto... :smileymad:

Actually, darocker077, those are the correct settings path for an OS 5.0 and below device.

 

The 9800 Torch in this thread is on OS6, which will use the path of instructions as a posted above.

 

Thanks!
