There is no direct Verizon option outside of getting a court ordered subpoena, however, there are applications you are able to download to do so. One I use it "SMS Backup " which will back up messages to gmail account. You can also utilize whatever operations systems application to download similar apps. This is the most viable option. Please let us know if you need anymore assistance.
