I have a user wth an iPhone 6...Unfortunately, the phone was lost for about 12 hours and damaged beyond repair (it was laying in a street and run over several times). The phone may have still been functional to some degree since the "FInd My iPhone" led the user to the phone. I moved the (undamaged) SIM card to another iPhone, and was wondering if that mobile number received any text messages during the 12 hours period, would we know, or are they lost. Currently, with the SIM in the new phone, there are no old text messages being displayed.
I would have gone crazy without my phone for 12 hours. I'm happy the Find My iPhone worked out for you. The following link will get you to My Verizon so you can check the text history. When you sign into My Verizon you will be able to see the text sent/received number, date, and time. http://bit.ly/xB4iTc
