    I have done before, and I found lots of text messages asking this girl what he had to do to 'win her heart' :|

    Yeah, of course I would. It's not as if he would find out, and I didn't purposely rack his house for the phone or anything like that. I don't really think there's an issue unless you're looking with "oh my goodness, I bet he has a secret lover!" in mind. I wouldn't be surprized if they did the same to me.

    Seriously here- why does everyone pretend to be some kind of saint? Moral of the story: don't leave your phone lying around.
    haha so true. My bf always take my fone with him when he's away to the loo. He plays my game. But i dont really care if he checks my txts. I've looked at his txts once but not because i was checking on him, but just cus i want to see what i've sent him lol.

    No, because I imagine they would all be very dull messages anyway.

    No. My partner's correspondence is none of my business.

    Yeah I probably would if he left it at my house. If I was at his and he'd gone off I wouldn't look, no. It'd be simply out of curiosity and boredom. I'd be more likely to play the games he has though :awesome:

    I left my phone in my boyfriend's car once and I bet he looked at it, but I couldn't care less. Not like I had anything to hide.

    I'm a nosey *******, so I'd be tempted to, but I think I'd manage to resist the urge

    No. I take privacy very seriously, and if I am to expect people to respect mine, I have to reciprocate.

    I probably would. In a relationship, I don't really see a need for that kind of "privacy". In the same way that my mum reads my mail, why shouldn't partners be able to lok at each other's phones?

    I would, not because I don't trust her though, just because I'm nosey!

    i've done it before. because we had almost broken up one night & he'd been very weird with his phone over the next few days, so i had a look through it while he was in the other room (as anybody would in that situation!) and found a text that i definitely would have wanted to see. He wasn't cheating or anything, it was just a text explaining how he really felt, guys tend to tell you what they want you to hear! But its all good, we made it through it & have just celebrated our 4th anniversary just incase anyone was wondering lol. we both trust each other to look at each others phones, so not such a big deal!

    I wouldn't because I'd be annoyed if he looked at mine (even though I've got nothing to hide). I think privacy should be respected and I can't do one thing, and then expect something else from him.

    Nope. My boyfriend left his phone at mine once by accident, and I didn't actually notice until he called me on his home phone to ask me if it was here. I'll admit it did cross my mind, just out of curiosity, but I didn't, and I wouldn't in future. They're his texts, it's none of my business, and I'd be furious if anyone did it to me, just as a matter of principle.

    I've logged into my (then) bf's bebo. I knew the pass since he told me then forgot about it.

    I went on and found lots of messages, to and from this girl, saying his relationship was bad (it was good that I knew) and that he liked this other girl.

    We split up that night. I'm glad I did look otherwise the situation would have been messier.

    Well what if you werent suspicious in the least. But you looked on their phone anyway and found messages like 'hope you enjoyed the blowy last night bbe x' or something along those lines.
    If you confront him about it, he as the perfect comeback 'why the fruck were you looking on my phone? i dont want to be with you anyway if you cant even trust me'.

    And you cant really keep quiet about it if your bf is cheating.

    I might have a look, just because i'm nosey though. I wouldnt mind if they looked at mine either really, have nothing to hide. I wouldn't be with them in the first place if i didn't trust them enough to assume they weren't cheating on me....
