Kabulsterin, the Cloud is a wonderful tool to ensure you can transfer your backed up data from one phone to the next. I welcome the opportunity to address your inquiry. While the cloud does keep your backed up messages on it, it does not allow the content to be reviewed on the website. We do not have the server capacity to keep thousands of messages in My Verizon. So long as the content is being backed up regularly, it will bring the message content saved in the Cloud from the old device over to the new device.
