90 days from the date you install and begin to use, sync, and backup.

I told you 90 days.  If you aren't using the VM+ app, handful means 3-6 days, but you cannot access them.  they are kept on Verizon's server for possible governmental purposes.

However, if the message was deleted by you then it can not be recovered.
