Finding numbers you've sent texts from an Alltel plan?

    Was wondering if there's a way to see the phone numbers I've sent and received text messages to. I have Alltel with the plan of 400 messages a month with unlimited messaging to My Circle and Mobile to Mobile.

    On my online account on alltel.com nowhere does it show the phone numbers I've sent and received text messages to/from, and that's what I need. It only shows how many messages I've sent/received for that month.

    Is there a way to see the numbers I've sent/received text messages to? Is there something on my personal account in Alltel.com that I'm missing or do they never list the texted numbers? Because all I see is how many messages I've sent or received but never the phone numbers they were sent to.

    Would appreciate some help. :)

    Negative, Ghost Rider.

    Due to the sheer volume of messages an average user has, Alltel doesn't even bother to keep this information. The messages themselves are purged after like a week and the phone numbers are saved for a short while beyond that. There is no repository that stores this information for the customer to see. Your best option is to file a subpoena for it, but even then it's not going to give you anything beyond at most the last 30 days worth of use.

    From an internal perspective, employees can see the numbers used for only the current months cycle. Beyond that, it is not available. Additionally, it is not information they're allowed to provide you due to their privacy policy. They consider it proprietary info. They just don't want to accept the liability if giving this information out leads to an illegal action or domestic violence.

    The handsets can store up to 100 messages before purging themselves, I'd start there and go forward.
