Iphone to Iphone texting

In my text/data logs online, it does not show the Iphone to Iphone texting phone number....i.e., who I texted that also has an Iphone. How do I find a number I texted when I accidentially erased the text?

IPhone to iPhone is iMessage, not SMS or MMS. Your text log only contains SMS/MMS texts, not iMessages. There is no way to find the number through your ATT account. If you have a backup of your phone prior to deleting, you can either restore that backup or recover that text from the backup using a pc and special software.

Apple iMessages goes through a different process and will not reflect on your phone bill. It’s not technically a text message, but sent via data like other messenger services. Don’t believe you can retrieve that, but try apple support at (Phone number hidden)
