Al loses his phone and it runs out of battery. He then is sent 10 SMS from various people. He then recovers his phone and switched it on and the messages are all received.
Bob loses his phone but never recovers it yet would like to see any messages he may have been sent.
As evidenced above and under RIPA 2000, we know that his service provider has been storing all of his received messages even if he never gets back that particular SIM card.
Is Bob entitled to access the SMS that were sent to him?
