In your daily life, there are lots of situations where you need to read someone’s text messages without having their phone. The most one is that the phone disappeared, stolen, damaged, or more. While there are certain needs for you to spy on someone’s phone, to make sure what the kids are doing, or to know if there is something happening between the relationship, or to get some evidence, or more.

Truly, to finish this job of seeing someone’s text messages without having their phone is really harsh. But it does not mean it cannot be done. With some technology tools, you can easily achieve it. Check them now in the following content.

Part 1. How to Read Someone’s Text Messages without Having Their Phone by iTunes/iCloud Backups

The easiest way to see someone’s text messages without having their phone is with the help of iTunes and iCloud backups. Because there is totally no need for using the target iPhone, and the only thing you just need to do is to access the iCloud account or the computer which stores the iTunes backups.

But you must ask “How can you access and view the messages in backup files since both of iTunes and iCloud don’t support backup viewing?” In fact, with the help of some professional iOS data managers, this can be very easy. And in this part, AnyTrans for iOS, as the best one, is strongly recommended.

1. AnyTrans for iOS enables you to easily access every single message item in iTunes and iCloud backup.

2. Not just text messages, but also including SMS, iMessages, and the attachments (photos, videos, and more).

3. Not just viewing, you can also download the messages to your computer in the formats of TXT, PDF, and HTML.

4. There is no need for installing any software on the target phone and without any notice.

5. Surely, definitely not just Message data type, you can also access the other iOS data, like contacts, photos, call logs, notes and more, and help you put them where you want.

Step 1Download and install AnyTrans for iOS on your computer > Click on Backup Manager for iTunes backups > It will show you all backups on the computer, and click View button to go on.

Part 2. How to Read Someone’s Text Messages without Having Their Phone by Apps

Recently, there are some apps for you to read someone’s text messages without having their phone, like Spyzie, Couple Tracker, mSpy, Mxspy, Highster Mobile, DDI, etc. They perfectly work for both the Android phone and iPhone.

While you have to know that these apps do not mean that you have no need to do anything. Take Spyzie as an example. For seeing text messages on an iPhone, you need to login in the tracked iCloud ID on the iPhone for data achieving; for the Android phone, you need to install the tracked app. So it is not 100% reading someone’s text messages without installing software or doing anything.
