Default Best Iphone App to catch a cheater

Tittle pretty much says it all. Just wondering what is the best way to monitor an iphone 4S. I rather it be free since there is no paper trail.

Thanks!

What do you want to do? And is it possible to jailbreak the phone?

what part are you monitoring?

iphones can yield lots of info but also be difficult to catch a cheater if they are savvy enough to use apps instead of texting


you can find texts by going into the backup file on the computer he syncs the phone with

I want to check what's going on on the phone. Want to know if there is contact with anyone else. The home computer is hooked up with spyware and nothing. Basically she's not using it anymore. She used to be on it a lot more but since the iphone she hasn't really been using it.

Jailbreak? Don't really know what you mean by that.

The time when I caught her cheating I noticed a pattern. She would delete ALL of her sent messages on her personal e-mail. So there was not paper trail. I thought it was odd that ALL sent messages were erased. I mean everyone saves a few sent messages at one time or another just because of normal every day stuff you deal with. Like e-mails to companies and so forth. You save them to keep a record just in case. Well, she never saved ANY sent messages. Lately all of her sent messages are there but on her iphone i noticed something the other day. I noticed that the voicemails that are automatically saved on iphones were ALL erased.

Now I know i might be jumping to conclusions but I rather be vigilant than a shmuck, again.

Almost,
it's a she. I don't know what you mean by "syncs the iphone" with. I assume it's the laptop at home. It's where she stores the itunes although the itunes account she uses is her sisters' account. "She has more music" but who knows if that's the actual reason.

There is a file on that laptop which holds all of her texts, call logs.

Windows XP:
C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\AppleComputer\MobileSync\Backup\
Windows Vista:
C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\AppleComputer\ MobileSync\Backup\
Mac OS X:
/Users/(username)/Library/ApplicationSupport/MobileSync/Backup/

You need to retrieve it.

Tocoma,
so basically if her iphone is sync to her sisters laptop then i would/could only access the info on her iphone from her sisters' laptop, right?

We have itunes on our mac as well, so lets say it is synced to our laptop then i could access that file from my laptop. If i do, is there a way she would know that after i'm done? Like when she's using her iphone the following day?

I'm assuming this is going to ask me for a password?

Would it be enough (to start with) to just look at her phone bill, and review her calling history?

If she wants to use her phone to cheat on you, she's going to get away with it if she's serious about it. Apps like Skype will let you communicate using strictly data, and can be added and removed daily. Many games allow messaging, bypassing SMS or any regular messaging apps.

Wish I had better news for you, but there you go...

You need to access whichever laptop she`s backing up her iPhone to.

You will need no password to view the back-up files and there is no way she can discover you`ve accessed them unless you tell her.

The only password you`ll need is to the laptop used to back-up the phone if there is one.

Pbear has a point.

Many innocent apps can be used to communicate without leaving a trace.
Scrabble even has a text system within the app I`ve heard of BS`s using it in this forum.
Facebook also has a messaging app, there are literally thousands of them.

If she is using the text abilities of the phone itself getting that file I mentioned will give you her texts.

PBear,
i've checked the bill history and haven't found anything. Did that pretty much the minute I found out she had cheated on me. All I found there was that she calls and texts her sister and mom more than I thought it was humanly possible. lol

I think I might save myself the hassel and maybe set a small trap. Like call her when I know she can't answer her phone and leave a voicemail. If she deletes it automatically and deletes the back up then I need to assume that it's part of her routine. If she doesn't and then out of nowhere it's deleted then i can go the extra step.

Tacoma,
OK thanks. I guess if I already checked the bill history and saw all the numbers that were sent and texted too then there isn't much more that the back up can give me.

I guess I was trying to figure out if she was communicating with anyone else using other not so normal format (i.e. texts, voice, etc). She does have a lot of games downloaded but the users she plays against are her mother, sister, girlfriends and my sisters.

I'm not sure what your test will accomplish if you're not seeing anything suspicious in her cell phone bill.

If you get no odd numbers from the phone records it`s unlikely she`s using text to communicate.

The only other option is like you and PBear said, some other app.
Which you can`t access back-ups for to my knowledge.
