It depends on the type of phone and what operating system it used.

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

It's the LG Env touch and I'm not sure what you mean by operating system.

If your phone was a smartphone, there might have been applications available to do what you want.  I don't know what options are available for a feature phone.

If the messages are stored on the device and you can power the device up you can use the application posted at https://community.verizonwireless.com/thread/770529  , the application has a screen capture option and you can use the screen as a guide to install MyBackup from Market or a number of backup apps from Market and then you can run the applications and backup data to your SD Card to restore to the replacement device.

The LG Env Touch is not a smartphone, Wildman, unfortunately.

My Mistake, you are right...  Well that software should still work on a basic device (Without MyBackup) if the user would like to backup the messages to a file but the data will be in a readable format but cant be respored to the device.   But the user will have a copy of messages.

But how would I be able to do this if al I get is a blank screen when I have the phone on? My screen is 100% blank which is the problem I am having. And the text messages are an important part of my buisness.
