My phone's led screen has died and I wanted to see the text messages that have come in on it today. Is there anywhere on the site to do this or they are lost forever along with that phone??

It's quite possible they're lost in the sense that you can't read them right now.

However depending on your device if you're able to back up your phone, and get a new phone that can restore from that backup the messages should be on the new phone.

If you are worried about not getting text messages then I would suggest turning the phone off until you geta replacement phone - that way when u put the SIM in the new phone, any texts that came but u had not got would pop up on the new phone.
