One slight exception to this rule is the iMessage feature on iPhones and iPads. Using Apple's iCloud allows a user to sync their phone with all of the other Apple devices in one given home. Therefore, a person would be able to check their text messages not only from their iPhone but also from their iPad or even their home computer.
