If you deleted them and they were not part of your most recent iCloud back up then you can not get them back. If they are part of your most recent back up then you can restore that backup to get them BUT any activity that has occurred since that back up will not be included (you'll lose it). In the future I'd suggest not deleting your texts. They don't take up much space so deleting them won't give you much back as far as storage.

I know how upsetting it can be to lose your text messages LOCOLDI1988. Let's get to the bottom of your messaging concerns. Were the text messages deleted from the stock messaging app on your phone? Did you have iCloud storage on your phone set to back up your text messages?
