I accidently deleted a text message thread that had really important information in it. Is there any way to get it back or some way to get a transcript of it?

Nope, once it's gone it's gone unfortunately

It's likely gone, but not necessarily.

If you have an iPhone or a Windows Phone 7 device, you can get your thread back by restoring a backup via iCloud/iTunes or Zune. This obviously only works if you've made a backup recently.

If you have an Android phone, you can't recover it unless you backed it up through the manufacturer's desktop software (if applicable, not all vendors provide you with this) or via a 3rd party app.

Unsure about Blackberry.

Again, this solution only works if you've made a backup. Otherwise, it's as Kid Android said - gone.
