Once you delete messages are they gone for good?

Do mobile providers keep a record of all text messages?

They do. For police and so-called anti-terror investigations...
Not sure what currently the required length is...I think 6 months; but I could be wrong - frankly the implications depress me, so I avoid the issue ;)
And of course, though they'll give copies to the authorities, they won't give them to you. No matter how urgent...
