What type of phone do you have? I'm also assuming you have a phone that deletes messages from a thread after a certain amount have been sent/received.

The short answer is no. You would have to install an app that saves incoming and outgoing text messages beforehand. If this is for legal reasons, you'll need a court order. The only phone(s) I'm aware of are the Nokia Lumia line of devices which allow you to save text messages to the cloud.

I believe iPhones will do this as well, or can with the iCloud system. Also it may be worth checking out if Google Drive can do this. However, if you are trying to recover deleted text messages, as rikkster states, there is no way to easily do this.
