Traveling Internationally lost texts


Thanks for welcoming me into the group. 

I just got back from 3 weeks in Ireland and had a blast! I went with an Irish SIM card instead of the Verizon international plan. 

When I came home, I was expected to be bombarded with all the texts I missed, however, I didn’t receive any! 

Assuming these messages are now gone forever or is there a way to recover them?

Good morning. I'm glad you had a wonderful time in Ireland! I'm sorry that the messages are gone. Technically, since you had another SIM, your Verizon number was inactive, so the messages or calls cannot be retrieved. I'm so sorry!
