If you deleted the text thread from your messaging list, you might still be able to access it from your call log, if you have a newer Android:

Access the call log by opening your dialer, and pressing the call button.

Then press the menu key and select "View By:"
Select "All messages"

Good luck!

Unless you're rooted, no.

To prevent this from happening again, I'd recommend an App from the Play Store like "SMS Backup+"--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...

OP just wanted the number, though, John. My phone isn't rooted and it tells me who I texted (including number) using the native text app from the call log. Granted I don't use the native text app a lot, but it is accurate when I do. I just tested it.

You can go on your self serve account and if you remember what date you texted the person and at around what time, you can find his number there.
