Swedes secretly read their partner's SMS messages

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Almost two-thirds of Swedes secretly read their partner's SMS messages, according to research by mobile portal Halebop for Swedish operator TeliaSonera.

Some 64 per cent of those questioned this summer said they read their partners' text messages out of nosiness or jealousy, according to The Local. Most Swedes peek into their partner's phone when he or she is in the bathroom or shower.

Maybe there is an explanation for the distrust: 86 per cent of those questioned admit to have flirted with someone by SMS, while 40 per cent claim to have gone one step further: having 'SMS sex' with someone.

Swedes, it turns out, are a lot nosier than Brits. Almost half of British women, 45 per cent, owned up to secretly checking their partner's messages, compared to 31 per cent of men, according to a survey carried out by Sicap, a Swiss messaging services provider. ®
