iPod Touch: automatically copied on texts?
My 13 year old son wants an iPod Touch which he will be using mainly for texting and I want to make sure he is keeping everything appropriate.
Is there a way that I can be copied on all of his sent and received texts, either to my phone or to my email? This way I can still monitor him even if he deletes the texts from his iPod.
Or, is there a way to disable his ability to delete the texts in the first place?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!
