Great3Kids, thanks for posting. Unfortunately there is not a way to get deleted messages back unless you had them backed up using a 3rd party app.^SP
1.Connect your iPhone to your computer, using the USB cord provided by Apple.
2.Wait for your iTunes program to open and select the "Sync" button in your iPhone options.
3.Wait for your iPhone information to complete updating and remove your iPhone from your computer.
4.Open the text messaging application on your iPhone and the messages present on your phone when it was last synced with your computer will be restored from backup, along with the messages that are on your phone currently.

The iCloud service from Apple does a lot of great things oscarb1958, but it does not back up your text messages. For more information about iCloud, visit http://bit.ly/jWGrs6
