Do employers read text messages on employer paid cell phones?

How likely is it that employers actively monitor text messages of company paid cell phones?
I can see lots of reasons why it would behoove them to do so, albeit in a creepy way. But they could have all this dirt on people and know who was naughty and nice and who was about to get a new job and who drinks too much and so forth. But...do they?
Is there such thing as active monitoring of company paid cell phones? To the point where they routinely have and use the option to read texts? Is this complete paranoia and something that is reserved for uber secure jobsites and not something that your average midrange McCorporation would do?
Any data points? I googled a bit and couldn't find any nuts and bolts answers.
Asking anonymously because I don't want to go on record as being worried about my employer reading my naughty texts. Duh. :P
