There are SMS backup applications in the Play Store that you can use to backup the text messages from one phone and restore them on another phone.  However once the messages are deleted and weren't backed up, can't be restored.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
