No they're not, they're on the devices flash memory and won't be lost.

Thanks! Reason I ask years ago I had 377 unread texts on a Sony Ericsson w880i. Done a software update via phone and all those unread texts deleted

Do you save every text you get and open them all at the end of the year or something?

Good grief people really shouldn't answer if they don't know.

If your battery is replaced by apple they reinstall the latest version of IOS. it wipes everything so archive first. if it's done in a phone shop (not apple) they don't.

beware with a phone shop as often the battery is rubbish.

Why don't you read your text ?

Your phone should also back up to the cloud. So in theory a restore would bring them back

When you backup to iTunes before breaking your phone all the messages will also be backed up.

So when you restore or connect to iTunes your messages will miraculously be back on your phone.
