Re: Subject access request.

Problems unfortunately don't go away no matter the day of the week. Hope something can be done for you on Monday. The systems customer service have access to don't record text like they once did.In days gone by, an adviser could see a history of texts sent and received and there were plenty of text conversations that both parties would prefer didn't exist. I saw plenty of recorded sexting that a customer would be appalled to know advisers had access to. With the privacy laws these days, I'm not sure if messages can still be pulled off the system but if so, then someone higher up would need to be able to access them and release them in the event of police involvement or legal matters.

yes but they want me to try and get them 1st before they have to request them.

@Gazpreece_1974 If this is an ongoing court case, and you have a solicitor who must be aware that you're having health issues, why are they asking you to make the request? You shouldn't have to be doing their job for them, putting yourself under even greater stress. Doesn't make any sense to me.

Re: Subject access request.

A SAR (Subject Access Request) isn't really for accessing information on recorded calls or text. Its more to do with what information a party has on you rather than what you are doing. More info here: 



I recall correctly, the police can request details of numbers but (and it may have changed) they get charged for it by the telecom company and it wasn't cheap.
