For legal proof, I need to get past 365 days Text message history from Fido between me and someone through my phone and his phone in the past year.

 

Please tell me who should I do or my lawyer.

Hey all! 

 

We are still unable to provide specific details for your text messages, time/date/number/content, due to security/privacy reasons and system limitations, however, that said, I'd like to provide an update to this thread as the Extreme Text Messaging feature has since been decomissioned. 

 

You will likely be able to find a third party app with similar functionality to that of our Extreme Text Messaging feature from your device's app store that you can use to send copies of your text messages to your email. 

 

Hope this helps!

Hello @karl3,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

Unfortunately if you do not have the history backed up anywhere Fido will not be able to help you.

Fido do not log SMS history and that's because of privacy reasons. 

 

For future reference can you use the Fido extreme text messaging feature and have a copy of your text messages emailed to you, you can get more info about that here.



Hey @karl3!

 

@KAPABLE-K is correct, we do not log details of your text messaging conversation on our end.

 

Do you have a backup of your phone saved by any chance? If so, then you can get the history by restoring from an older backup.

 

Let us know if you have other questions!

Thanks for your help.

Couldn't find any apps, do you have any suggestions that forward text messages sent via fido?
