>>But if all you're trying to do is retrieve SMS messages, it'd be a lot
easier to just subpoena the carrier .. they keep the contents forever (even if they say they don't .. I know for a fact they do because I personally saw one of the major US carriers .. [ahem.. Verizon] .. deliver boxes of sent/received text messages -- for hundreds of phones -- going back at least a year).<< Michael Holstein CISSP GCIA
What cases was this for? I would love to see some paperwork to back this up. The only messaging kept we could find is through Verisign, (yes Verisign) they provide the inter-carrier messaging. However, they only keep the record of the "headers", not the actual body of the message.
Can you provide some details?
