In my past experience, text message transcripts are not kept or recorded by most cell companies, all they have is a record of numbers called or the record of the numbers to which a text message was sent, but not the contents of the message. To obtain the records a subpoena
must be issued for the information. When issuing the subpoena you would ask for the contents of the messages, but because of storage reasons if the companies have them they do not hold them for very long.
