@urkell No, the above is not wrong. What you use is called ATT Messages and it is a service you specifically must sign up for. It did not exist when the above responses were written. ATT still does not retain text content unless you sign up for ATT Messages. Customers who have not signed up for ATT Messages still can not get their text content history.
