Sorry.  If you use ATT message backup and sync you have 90 days saved.  Otherwise the content is gone.

Hmm, I guess I better get my lil ole self over to my account services and find out if I have message backup and sync which I really doubt.  My mother passed nearly 2 years ago and tonight, December 30th, 2017 I came across text conversations I had with mom.  Must be a blessing since it's well over 90 days.  Created a community account this eve to ask if there was a simple 'save conversation to file' but better get on with plan B. Ctrl-a, save...Page down Ctrl-a.  Archaic but effective.

 

Happy New Year ya'll
