Is anyone here aware of their parents reading text messages stored on their phone? I seem to recall Amazingtrade (Ian) complaining about it a while back. Is this acceptable or not? Don't your parents just have your best interests at heart?

But surely there is nothing on your telephone which you wouldnt want your parents to see?

its out of order. it's not in your interests at all. if they read our messages, they might as well sit on the other phone while we're on it. Us reading their messages however...

My parents wouldn't, they're just not like that.

Besides, they wouldn't get the chance to as my sister is like that. So my phone is always either switched off or with me, in my pocket.

Good. Imagine how grateful you would be if you had a gambling problem. Or if you were spending your money on male escourts.

I remember once talking to my boyfriend about bank statements, and he was saying that he hoped he'd get back home from uni before his bank statement arrived (the bank mucked up with the change of address thing..), so that he could read it before his mum did. I was really suprised when he said that. My parents never open my letters (except for once when my dad was expecting a letter from Sheffield and assumed that my letter with a South Yorks postmark on it was his. But he realised straightaway and put it back, without reading.)

Percy you seem to be a robotic parent. Haven't you heard of something called privacy?

Do your parents pay the bill? Because that's the only way that can be justifiable, in my opinion.

Why not just lock your phone when not using it? (as siblings have a tendancy to have a peep).
