    Once you have a deleted a text, there is no way to retrieve it. Unlike the desktop, you cannot open the trash back up. I have seen apps advertised that are supposed to retrieve SMS but I have never tried one. Sorry!

    The only way to retrieve a deleted SMS is to restore the phone to a time when the SMS was backed up, if it was. You have the choice to either restore the device to that backup, which will result in everything you have done since that backup to be lost, or if the SMS is in the backup, you could download an iPhone backup extraction software. Google for some choices.

    If you've backed up your phone via iTunes, all of your messages will still be there as of that point. Hopefully you do it often and wont lose many of the new ones..

    Follow the tips from there: How to retrieve deleted SMS from iPhone

    Good luck with your process!
