Clarification Request
Do you mean....

....anitivirus application or an application to spy on someone's phone. I hope you did mean antivirus like AVG or Norton (for example).

no I meant to spy on my son

My teenage son is doing things that are of concern to me, need I say more?

This it is time

To dumb down the phone. Exchange it for one that does only what you approve of.

Since you are not tech smart (no offense intended) there is no known click here to spy on a phone tools, you have to solve it in a way you can today.

So you mean ...

something like a keylogger on a PC, that collects everything typed on the phone.

The equivalent for a phone would be a conversation logger, SMS logger, whatsapp logger, Skype logger, Facebook logger? What exactly would you want to see or hear?

His kind of phone and please don't judge a mother

his phone Is a Lg Revere and what I want to see are the text messages he is sending and receiving to his phone, and I would like very much for it to be undetected, this is a serious matter and I am trying to save a kids soul,life, and future, talking didn't seem to get thru or help, if I cannot find something to help me with his messages it will be a lie detector test for him, and I really don't want to have to go that route, but I am desperate for him to get straight.

yes

I want to see his phone text messages outgoing and in comings, that is all I am interested in not skype or any of that other stuff. Since cell phones aren't one of my favorite things, and I don't know much about them, I think the SMS logger you mentioned is what I am looking for? NOT sure. There is no Sim card on his phone that I can look at, so spyware was the next step.

Keep in mind...

...that in the real world, it would require a court subpoena, at least in most of the country, to see that content. Not likely you will find an application that will allow the same. Have to agree with another post that you should have text messaging disabled so that you set the rules with your son.

Have Verizon disable text messaging on his line

That's how we roll in my family. At that point you can have a proper sit down with your kid and sort out the issue.

Also, if you *really* want to see the incoming/outgoing messages, confiscate the handset as a last resort.

Answer
The LG Revere will not and never will have this feature.

If you have to get the content, only the cellular carrier can do this at their servers.
