Is there a way to retrieve all my text messages from the past 10 months? They have been deleted and I never backed them up.

I really need to access them and my phone is on a cooperate account so I am not the account manager.

If you didn't back them up, there is really no way to get them. Especially since you are not the account owner. Verizon keeps text content for a short period of time, but even for the account owner, to obtain text content, generally requires a court order.

Not possible. They don't  backup texts that far  back. They also don't hang them out without a court order to do so for the ones they do have.
