    You will need to root your phone and purchase recovery software. Even then, the deleted file may have been overwritten so there's no guarantee it will work

    Texts are kept in a database, so recovery won't do any good. You'll have to root the phone, install a SQLite editor, learn SQL, find the text database, find the entry marked "deleted" and update it to "active". Since SQL is pretty simple, it shouldn't take you more than a week or so to learn enough. (Or pay someone to do it.)

    Assuming that the phone can be rooted.

    Odds are you don't but if you have a Verizon phone with Verizon Message Plus you could recover the last 90 days

    Welcome to Android Central! Perhaps this might prompt you to secure your phone with a good screen lock, and make you think twice before letting anyone else use it?
