To be clear, were you referring to the actual message or just the numbers messages were sent to and from?
Messages themselves are stored on Verizon up to 10 days. The list of numbers from and to can be accessed in My Verizon under your Bill and Usage up to 90 days.
I was referring to the actual messages themselves. How do I get the last 10 days worth?
Sent from my Verizon Wireless 4G LTE smartphone
To get the actual messages if you have deleted them from your phone and have no back up is via subpoena from a court. I'm not even lying. By then, they will be gone from the server.
