    Unhappy Recovering Text Messages

    I have a Droid 2, well just recently I dropped it in the toilet and I heard it sizzling and I immediately knew that my phone was toast. Well I went up to Verizon and got a brand new phone, but the problem I'm having is I'm trying to access the text messages on my old phone, because I'm currently in need of them. I have contacted Verizon about receiving a copy of my text messages in the past month, but they refuse to release that information to me. The reason why I ask is I'm trying to find someway to access those text messages on my old phone, but the phone will not turn on at all. I figure I can't do anything about it and that the matter is in Verizon hands now.

    The reason why I mention all this is the text messages are a serious matter as I'm about to go thru a lawsuit against my former boss and the proof that I have on her is actually in those text messages. I brought it to a lawyers attention because apparently Verizon won't let go of that information unless a lawyer is involved. So I'm just wondering is there in fact a way to get those texts off my old phone, like maybe go into the internal memory somehow and retrieve them even if the phone does not turn on? Thanks for any advice!

    I'm looking more into the matter as we speak, one thing that came to mind was that I had my memory card installed on my old phone, well when I got my new phone my memory card did not get damaged in the process, so I put it in my new phone, and it came to mind that there still might be a way to access the text thru that, but I'm not sure that the card itself stored the messages or if it was my phone? I think it's retarded that Verizon refuses to release the information to me, as it's my property and I should be able to receive a copy without having to get a subpeona, but I guess if it's going to come down to that, I have to do what I have to do.

    For future reference, if you have text messages that are that important to you just email them to yourself.

    The messages are not your property. They are stored on VZW's network, therefore it's their property. Either way, you better speak to your attorney quick, because they're not stored very long.

    Id argue against that logic. You're paying verizon to handle your communication services. That's like saying the U.S. postal service has ownership over your mail. Does the U.S. postal service have ownership of your mail?

    If the other poster is wrong, why won't Verizon release the messages to the device owner?

    Droid 2s don't have SIM cards?
