Unless you have it backed up somewhere, you can't.

I think you're remembering Bluebook, that facility stopped a good while back and it is closed now for contacts storage too:

Hi Mrshorthair

 

 

We need to know what phone your using and any associated software you connect up to.

 

ie : If you use an iPhone do you connect up to iTunes or have you activated iCloud.

Re: Restore a deleted text message

I'm not certain if apps are available for the iPhone, but on Android I use an app to backup my messages to gmail automatically.
This saves me from accidentally losing anything important.

Due to the limitations Apple impose I don't think there is an app that will do the same on iOS.  Everything is supposed to be backed up in iTunes or icloud.
