Unfortunately you can't unless you back them up.. Koodo has no access to texts as they are sent from phone to phone. Koodo cannot access them. Try using an app like "backup to Gmail" or similar to back up future texts so you always have a backup.

depends which phone it is .. imazin can retrieve some old iphone text and imsgs because even if you delete them they are still there somewhere sitting in the iphone ROM until gets overwritten .

dont know if android has some sort of data recovery software or not ..

i had deleted a msg in the morning , went home same night and used imazin to get it back . it was still hidden somewhere in the phone ROM

You didn't mention what phone you have, but if it's an Android, check out MightyText. I use it all the time and you can even text from your desktop! The free version keeps texts for 6 months and the paid version indefinitely.

I would hope that Koodo (and their gateway provider) does not keep copies of everybody's text messages. It is none of their business.

A forensic expert may be able to retrieve the message from your phone's memory, but this will cost you $$$ (I would expect four digit). If it is that important (next weeks lottery numbers? a get-out-of-jail code?), you must stop using your phone immediately to increase the chance of successfully recovering the message.
