This option is not available on self-serve. You could do this

1. Open the text messages on your iPhone and hold until more/copy option appears
2. Choose the copy option
3. Copy the text and send it to your email address.

Or this :

If you mean old texts that you'd like to retrieve then no you can't get that without a possible court order from a judge.

Someone will try this one day and realize that they wasted money because you suggested them to do something that won't work. Carriers do not keep what the messages say, they just keep the information like where it was sent to, what time etc. for some time.
