How do I retrieve a specific text message?
To restore specific text messages from an iCloud backup, connect your iPhone to your computer. Launch iTunes and select your device. In the iPhone's location window, click the phone icon. Next, click on the Summary menu, and then click on "Restore Backup." Once you have found the backup, select a date before the date when the messages were deleted. This step will only work for text messages that were sent on your iPhone in the past.
