A: It is highly unlikely T-Mobile has the content of text messages from 2021 and 2022. Usually the content of text messages is stored on the devices used to send and receive the messages. Cellular phone companies do not independently retain copies of such content. You should ask one of the parties who have possession of the devices used to send or receive the text messages for copies rather than the service provider. They are far more likely to have retained the content.
