I have sent in my phone for service. While it is away, can I access text messages that I receive online somehow?

You would need to connect to an iPad or iPod or MacBook with your Apple ID and then you would receive all your messages from your iPhone. Unfortunately, you would only receive iMessage since message forwarding hasn't been set up. But it is something at least!

Hi Brown Sugar, text messages can't be read on your Self Serve. They can only be read from the device where your Sim card is inserted. Hope that helps.

Thank you for your reply. What device do I need and is it for deleted messages?

Hi Brown Sugar,

From this link, you'll find more info about your inquiry: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201349. To make it work, you'll need another Apple device.

For your second question, we are not sure that you'll be able to access your deleted messages once you added your phone number on the other device (iPad, Mac, etc...). We recommend to try and see if you've got access to those messages.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

If you want to read android phone text messages on computer, you can use a third party android data transfer app to move them to computer.
