The only way is to go back to your messenger and scroll through all the texts...provided you have all the texts that far back.  If you do, you can try out Verizon Messages + app and the desktop program and they will sync and perhaps make searching much easier for you on a larger screen.  However, if your texts do not go back that far on your phone, then there is no way to search for them.

Search through your text messages:  As in on your phone or on your bill?  To do so on your bill you can only see the numbers messages were sent to and from, not the messages.  You would have to log into My Verizon and click the line in question and look under usage-messages-then you can sort by date.

No, not on my bill. Sorry. I was searching for a certain text message from

one of my favorites and wanted to see all texts from her between March &

April of 2013.

I don't want to look on my bill at all. Wanted to just see texts between

those months.

Is there any wY to do that?

I tried to call Verizon but the wait was ridiculous and the LIVE CHAT said

try again later and wouldn't even let me enter a question.

Appreciate your reply! Thank you so much. god bless you!
