Can you check how many messages have been sent in an iMessage chat?

I’m curious if there’s a way to check how many messages you’ve exchanged with someone on iMessage, like the message count feature on Facebook.

Hello @Arthur, Yes, you can check the number of messages sent in an iMessage chat by using these methods:

  • SMS Stats App for Jailbroken iPhones: If your iPhone is jailbroken, you can use an app like SMS Stats. It shows the total number of messages sent and received, including separate counts for SMS and iMessages.
  • iPhone’s Built-in Features: For non-jailbroken iPhones, there’s no direct message count feature. However, you can enable the character count for messages by going to Settings > Messages and turning on Character Count. This won’t give you the total number of messages but will show the number of characters in each message as you type.

Yes, you can get the total message count for each given thread by syncing your phone with iExplorer.
