is there a way to get a hold of history of text numbers once they disappear from my bill?

Only if the user hasn't deleted them from the phone manually.

Start | Messaging

That shows you a list of all the text messages sent. Now, they're grouped by "conversation" (essentially user), but that list will show the last message sent or received from a number. You can go back as far as you like. From my knowledge there's no limit to how far that history goes.

Hope that answers your question.

Be sure to save a copy of each months detail in a .pdf, so you can go back a view if necessary

Bc3tech is correct for the most part. However Smartphones have a 200 message default set before messages are deleted, unless changed by the user.

Correct. VZW only keeps text logs available for 3 months. So when the new bill arrives, go online and save each bill on your PC so you can access the info if ever needed.

Oh yeah, Windows is a different beast. My First SmartPhone, I had nearly every text I received on it, until I retired it.

I guess it depends on something as I looked at my bills and it only lists the voice calls, not the text messages.  It does show the number of text messages, but not who I sent to / received from.

You need to be the account owner and you need to look at invoices that are 3 months or less old
