    It depends on the situation, if you were feeling suspicious about her going off with someone else its your instinct to check their phone and see whats been going on.

    Probably not. I wouldn't expect anything of interest to me to be on there.

    I've done it before when my browser automatically logged onto his email by accident, and he wouldn't have found out, but i felt SO bad i ended up telling him straight away.

    I'd never do it again though :nn:

    Nah I wouldn't and maybe for fear that I might find something out, but then I'd want to know.. but I wouldn't look.

    Of course you would look, its human nature!

    But it wouldn't be to see if they were cheating, it would be out of curiosity.

    Yes I would but then neither of us mind if the other answers our phones/read a new text etc. He uses my Facebook to talk to his friends as he doesn't have it. Neither of us have anything to hide, so I don't see the problem?

    but it might not be a trust issue, just general interest, dont press the red button type situation, not as if theyre performing coitus with some nub.

    If it's just interest then ask, and you shall receive.
    But invading someones privacy like that? I'd have nothing to hide, but would feel they don't trust me. I leave my phone lying around and am a trustworthy person, and it'd be a terrible thing to do.

    Nope, i'm not suspicious of anything, nor would his phone interest me that much.

    Actually, what I would do, is record something weird as his ringtone and message tone and set it to that, then change his background, and mess with all the settings, and add weird contacts into his phonebook. Cos i'm mature, like.

    I'd log them out the second I noticed.

    I wouldn't want it to happen to me- why should I do it to them?

    The same. I wouldn't want someone snooping around my phone with out my permission. But is they asked because they're just bored/curious I wouldn't have a problem with them doing it.

    If I knew he wouldn't mind, then of course I would. If I thought he might be annoyed by the intrusion into his privacy, then I wouldn't. I wouldn't care if someone went through my phone though - if I send/recieve a message that I don't want anyone else to read, I delete it, so my inbox is mostly full of "can you pick up some milk on your way home" type stuff. And I definitely wouldn't care about Facebook - everyone else can see every conversation you have on there anyway!

    Email is different though, I wouldn't look through anyone else's emails. I don't know why.

    It depends. Sometimes i'm interested and have a look however sometimes I'm not bothered.

    As for someone looking at my phone. Password protection ftw!
