As long as the deleted text hasn't been overwritten by other data you can use 'Undelete SMS' on a jailbroken iPhone. It's not a free program but you should be able to copy/pasta onto your notepad.

Or you could contact your carrier and request they resend your previous messages.

They have to keep copies for legal reasons. Say the police thought the phone was being used to traffic drugs - they'd get a warrant and the phone company would give them copies of the messages.

Anyway - they should be able to send them to you again if you request it. A lot of carriers do this, but charge a small fee.

Whenever you backed your iPhone up with iTunes on your computer or iCloud, whatever text messages you had at the time in Messages will be saved in the backup. You can restore from that backup time and get those back. Anything after the backup, won't be saved.

Phone carriers do not save text message information, just the time they are sent / received and numbers to.
