Electronics Pete :

Unfortunately, if the messages have been deleted from your HTC EVO handset, then the only way to retrieve them now is through a court order or subpoena requiring your phone service provider to release details of the messages, unless you had made a backup of the messages on your computer before they were deleted.

Customer: Are you sure they are not stored anywhere in my phone? I really need texts from a specific day
Electronics Pete :

Once the message has been digitally erased from the phone, the only way to possibly retrieve it is from the phone service provider; however they will not release this data without a court order or subpoena.
