How to retreive texts that were sent to me when my prepaid balance was too low?

If my prepaid balance is too low I will not receive any text messages or phone calls. How can I retrieve the texts that were sent to me once I top up my prepaid balance?

If someone texted you when your phone was suspended from lack of funds, those texts are gone.

Thank you for the reply. You are certain that there is no way to retrieve these messages? That seems strange

ATT only holds texts for 48-72 hours. If those texts aren’t gone, you should automatically receive any sent within that time frame once your service is restored. There is no retrieving, you either get them or you don’t.
