Try removing the sd card from your previous phone. Also try logging into your google account, as SMS are often automatically backed up through your google login. If none of these solutions work, try to use the Samsung Data Recovery software, which is designed for recovering deleted data from Samsung Android phones.

It is possible to directly recover deleted text messages from android, but you should make sure you have backup files somewhere.
1. Google account, if you have a google account for your android phone and open the automatically sync, you can try to recover from google account.
2. Offical PC software, generally speaking,an Android phone need to upgrade in computer via a official PC software, such as Samsung PC studio, and this applicaiton have a automatically backup function, when you connect the phone to computer and launch the application, it will make a backup for your phone data, thus you can try to find the backup from PC studio.
3. 3rd-party android assistant - Android SMS Recovery, which is similar with PC studio, and it is more convenient, and the backup is more obvious.
