It depends on when you delete them. I don't really understand why people delete their text messages if they always want to get them back. Simply keep them.

Verizon has very limited space to save text message content. It is overwritten after about 10 days of being sent/received and you would need a court order to have the information released to you. Verizon is not a depository for your texts, they are a delivery service. Once they deliver it to you, it is your responsibility to either keep or get rid of the text. Once you get rid of it, it is gone.
