cheater phone. so many helpful apps and imessages do not show up on bill. I love/hate them.

wh has a iPhone 4s and it broke. he now wants a iPhone5.

I liked when we both had droids. now those were hard for wh to be sneaky with. lol

Really? I thought they were perfect for finding things out on him. I wouldn't have found half the stuff I did if it wasn't for his iPhone.

I hate that people invent special apps to help cheaters not get caught. Immoral asshats.

Luckily, there are also special things you can use to catch him.

Not just iPhones, any smart phone has access to the same or similar apps that hide all sorts of stuff. So don't hate iPhones, it's the cheaters and the enablers that are the problem.

Same for me. Everything I found out was because of his iphone. You can retrieve most of the deleted texts through the itunes backup files. And then there's the spotlight feature.

Im not familiar with the "spotlight" feature on the iphones. How does it work? would I have to download it to my WW's iphone?

Nope I believe they all have it. Just slide thumb to the right on screen and it will give you a search option. Search Away!!!

Have to agree, iPhones are the perfect resource for BSs to find everything. Androids can be customized too easily. All smartphones have cheater friendly apps.

I agree...when WH wanted an iphone recently,I was more than uncomfortable. I told him I would be ok with it,but only if it was understood that "spy"ware would be put on it immeidately. My gut is quiet..but with all the "helpful" cheater apps..no way. WH used his cell phone to cheat on me..it was his connection to CL and his secret email account. So cell phones in general are a huge trigger for me. Anyway,he agreed right away,and had no problem with the "spy"ware.."whatever you need to feel safe,baby..."

He got a cheap AT&T GoPhone. I can access the account online and see who he texts,and who texts him(only me and DD) and all calls. And NO internet.

HIS choice. He told me he knew I was scared and it was his job to make me feel safe.

Sorry for the slight t/j...I spend so much time talking on here about what he isn't doing,that I thought I'd take this opportunity to say something positive this time.

i get what everyone is saying. i think my wh has just become more tech savvy. each time i caught him i sadly also informed him how and he just found new ways to hide even the stupidest things. its just frustrating. i also do not like how imessages between iphones, ipads etc. do not show up on the bill.

i love SI! i learn something new everyday. i wish i didnt have to learn some stuff

THAT'S why he got away with it for so long!

H has a Droid for personal use and an Iphone for work!

He used to lock both and they were always within inches of his fingers. I can't tell you how many times before/after we separated that I wanted to shove them both where the sun doesn't shine!

(Now, I have access to both and he barely touches them!)

Now I am scared people me and my WS both had iPhones but he decided to go back to his droid ....... He said he liked it better should I be worried

Really? Do they automatically backup, or does the owner have to manually back them up?

How I know fWS isn't having an affair?

She constantly loses her cell phone. We spend a lot of time calling it and hunting for it.

If you plug an iphone into itunes it will give you an option to back up files. Not every deleted message is there, but there was enough for me to want to blow my eyes out.

Lonelygirl10 posted 7/31/2013 14:44 PM

My guy told me that they couldn't be retrieved because he deleted without backing them up first on his computer. I'm not tech savy at all, so don't really know how all this works. Even if he's never hooked his phone to itunes before, could the deleted messages from 4 months ago still be there if he hooked it up to itunes now?
