How to Track Text Messages With Sprint

By Kenyonda Bradley

Whether you want to monitor your child's text messaging history or avoid overages on your messaging plan, you may decide to track your text messages on your Sprint account. Tracking your text message usage is relatively easy. Sprint only shows the amount of text messages received and sent. If you want more information such as the recipient of the text, you may opt to install a third-party software to track your Sprint text messages. This is also a great way to monitor and track your child's texting on your Sprint account.
