Why would you be in a relationship where you don't trust the other person to the point where spying on them becomes a viable option?

You'll be able to answer that yourself once your balls drop.

It takes bigger balls to man up and break up with someone you don't trust instead of being a girl and spying on them. Seriously, if you have to spy on a girl that's cheating on you you are pathetic!

I'm glad this is gone. I hope something doesn't replace it. If someone put that on my phone, they'd have a SWAT team at their door (oops, sorry, meant to say he only spied on me, I don't recall saying that he was extremely dangerous).

i will get negitive for this, but it must be said.

do text messages ever have something of importance attached to them? i don't txt because its hostly the most retarded thing to ever happen to phones, o you have a phone, you can now talk cross country instantly, o you now have wireless talk instantly, now go anywhere instant talking, now you can send a message to them instead of talk and it costs you 20X what it would to just talk.

to text messages ever have anything of significants, or are they all "i

[citation][nom]Scott2010au[/nom]This app breaks so many laws it isn't even funny.[/citation]
Actually the tool isn't illegal if you use it yourself on your own phone in order to distribute every message from your phone to your other phones.

It's the user breaking the law, not the app.

Devils Advocate: Evidence to prove infidelity in divorce court.

Although, I agree with you. When a person is considering spying then there is enough doubt there to have a serious talk with your partner, or get ready to break up. Ultimately, I don't see the need in spying.

Why does everyone assume you have to be installing it on your significant others phone? I could see this as being a decent tool for parents to use if they thought their kid was doing something they disapprove of.. Although, why a kid you dont trust has a phone to begin with, I dont know..

[citation][nom]WhySoBluePandaBear[/nom]At the same time, what do you have to hide at any rate? Yes, spying on someone is sorta wrong, but if you're 100% innocent and aren't doing anything wrong, then you should have nothing to hide and it shouldn't bother you.


However, if you get mad and get caught with your hand in the cookie jar a few times...then I can see why you'd react to the fact that your significant other spied on you. They basically caught you doing stuff you weren't/aren't supposed to be doing.


If people weren't such scandalous, cheating, back-stabbing dogs like they are today, we wouldn't have these problems.[/citation]

I don't have anything to hide but I would get upset and the relationship would be over if the person I am with decides to spy on me. Having something to hide has nothing to do with not wanting someone to check your private things, it's about trust, if you don't trust me enough and are paranoid enough to think of spying then just leave cause you're not worth the time.

If you feel something is wrong, confront them or leave them but don't break laws (invasion of privacy is illegal BTW) just to find something out. That much paranoia will destroy the relationship whether it is true or not anyway, so why stay? Just leave and move on.

It would be funny if both partners suspected each other of spying and when installed the app on both phones... I wonder how bad the text message loop would go until the phone provider cut off the text messaging services to the phone for flooding the network with a closed loop of forwarded messages lol

To the devil's advocate who made the divorce court comment:

It wouldn't PROVE that someone has been, or is cheating. It only reveals that people have been talking about it. Why? Because CONTEXT can't be proven, only CONTENT. A person (or both persons involved) could simply say it was a fantasy, or an inside joke, and the courts would have to weigh that.

It absolutely doesn't prove infidelity. I know, because I watched a company incapable of firing two employees engaged in an extramarital affair in the work place (in an office, no less, which is why they were being terminated) because they claimed the email exchanges were simply a joke. No matter how vulgar, descriptive, and real it sounds, people can simply deny context and get away with it.

Eventually, the employer just had to deem their discussions work-inappropriate to enforce disciplinary action, but they were unable to terminate their employment because of arbitration defense from a union rep. In a court of law (dealing with divorce), a good defense attorney will chew up the "text proves infidelity" case.

I know of a couple of cases where this might've been useful on an employees phone. A company can have records of every email an employee's sent through their email system, why not messages sent from the employer-owned cell phones?

We have names for people like you, but probably too inappropriate for this site.
