What kind of phone is it?
What do you mean "updated" ?

Re: Find deleted text messages
It was an iPhone 4 and the text messages were made during the times of March 2012 thru May 2012. Then we're deleted daily. Since then he updated his phone to an iPhone 5 and I'm wondering if there is a way to retrieve text sent and received during that time. I'm only looking at a specific phone number that would have been texting him! I have a feeling there was something I didn't know anything about that was inappropriate. Going on between those two phone numbers during those dates! Conveniently enough I was ill and on bedrest so now that I'm well I'd love to bust him!!!!!!! Thank you for any advice you might have for me:)

There is no easy way, if there is a way at all.

If there are backups that were made during that time, those messages would be in the backup. If you restored from that backup, the messages would be on the phone.

So what you're saying is if I don't own that phone anymore than I can't find them. Even if he may have backed up on ITunes or would that make a difference? If we transferred all his contacts,etc from the old phone onto his new phone then could they be found on the new phone he currently has??

What I am saying is that if you have a backup in iTunes that was made when the messages were on the phone, if you restore that backup to another phone, you may be able to see those messages.
Transferring contacts, etc is not the same as transferring messages. So if you did not specifically transfer messages, they would not be on the the phone.. and even if you did, and they were deleted over a year ago, chances are low that they are recoverable.
