Thanks lewisr13 for your input. I really appreciate the time you take to help out our community members.
I hate when that happens, and believe me it's happened to me more than once. Unfortunately, as lewr13 mentioned, once the text messages are deleted from the cell phone it can no longer be recovered. You will need to have the person who sent the text message resend it to you.
If you need the deleted text messages for legal purposes there may be a way to recover them with a court ordered subpoena. It would depend on how long ago you deleted the text message. If this is the case please send me a private message with your name, mobile number, and more information regarding the situation. I'll be more than happy to assist you and provide further details.
I hope this information has been helpful.
