If you deleted your important text messages on your android, that’s too bad especially when you don’t have a backup. Now don’t worry, you just need the help from Samsung Recovery software.

Too many answers here and to be honest some of them look quite spammy. Anyways, I want to contribute too. If your device is rooted, you can use the app called Undelete available in the Play Store to recover deleted SMS from Samsung or any other Android phone. You can also use Drfone to recover deleted text messages and other data from an Android smartphone. Drfone works on both rooted and unrooted Android devices. This detailed guide worth a look:

Hope it helps!

As for me, I used Vibosoft Data Recovery for Android, is is capable of recovering messages, contacts, photos and video from an Android phone or tablet. Due to the ease-to-use interface, it's ideal for everyone, like single users or professionals, even concerned parents who want to protect their kids from negative information. Scan, preview and recover. Simple clicks bring you what you want, this is be your best choice if you need to restore your lost message and contacts:

SMS Recovery is not possible in Android. Once you delete a message, then the message is long gone without the possibility to recover it. Of course, there are backup and restore applications but those applications work when you perform a backup of the SMS messages and later you can restore them.

It is not difficult to recover your deleted photos and videos from Samsung Mobile, if you are sure that you've saved these photos on the inner memory card.
But I don't have any idea of recovering deleted text messages from Samsung. Sorry.
In the future, you should learn to back up your Android data with Android Transfer well.
