Only if you have a backup of the phone or are subscribed to ATT Messages backup and sync. Otherwise, once a text is deleted, it's gone.

If I can't retrieve messages through your service, how are law enforcement agencies able to then?

@Riplakish9 Law enforcement can’t get them either because ATT does not save text messages.
