If you haven't backed them up, then I don't believe you can. If you have backed up, take a look at this link, as it may be of use to you:

Are they not backed up to your iCloud account?
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

OnePlus 6 (O2 & Sfr), Z3 Tablet (Three UK), iPhone 8+ (EE)

Hopefully  they should be. If not if you search the apple forum there may be a way.

If you have iCloud turned on and carry out backups to it when on wifi then you may be lucky.

Apple link -> https://www.apple.com/uk/support/icloud/backup/

Apple iCloud overview info -> http://support.apple.com/kb/PH12519?viewlocale=en_US

If not and your not estranged from the other party you could ask the receiver of the text to forward it back to you , if they still have it.

The O2 Network won't be able to assist unfortunately.
