    If you backed up the phone to your computer or iCloud after the text was received and before you deleted it you can restore the backup, which will reset everything to the way it was as of the last backup.


    If you backed up to your computer you can purchase a 3rd party app for your computer that can extract it from the backup.


    If neither of these applies there is no way to recover it.
