    If you have done a back up prior to deleting them...you can restore from that back up, but you will lose accumulated data from that point until now.

    I might be wrong, but I highly doubt it...Once it's gone, it's gone for good.

    Ok thanks for the info!
    I have another question is it true you can find out where someone was when they sent a text or photo the moment they sent it? Did that make sense? Lol

    If they have geotagging turned on you can tell where the picture was taken, I doubt you can tell where it was sent from.

    Settings, location services, Photos
    If it is turned on it embeds the location via latitude and longitude of where the photo was taken.

    Go to your photo roll on the phone, notice at the bottom where it says Albums or places? Click places.... See those red markers? Pinch to
    Zoom on on the map and click
    One of the red markers. ;)

    Now you can get Find My Friends
    I use this and find my phone for my son
    At the moment my hubby feels better that way
    and sooner or later he will be off on his own as a teenager the rule is: "Leave it on or it's gone!"

    If your have a jailbroken iPhone you can install "Undelete SMS" from Cydia...... I know someone who bought this and retrieved a text message from 2010....results vary from iPhone to iPhone....
