Not receiving texts from when phone was dead?

Hey, so about two weeks ago I had to get my M8 repaired. The battery was essentially shot, and the micro usb port was messed up. Could rarely get the phone to charge when it was plugged in, and it'd often drain more power than it was taking in.

Anyway, I picked up the phone yesterday and it crashed once I started to try using it. I figured it was just an issue with the rom (forget what I had on it), and decided to mess with it when I got home that night. So I get home and start trying to get the phone to work. It would always get stuck at the white "HTC One" screen. I'd reboot to recovery, wipe it, and restore from a previous backup, but it'd keep happening. I tried various backups and nothing would get past that white screen until I finally tried my original backup of the stock OS. That finally got me through and the phone is functional now. But when I booted it up, no messages came through.

My phone was off for two weeks, and I know people sent me texts during that time, but they're not showing up. I thought maybe the techs had received the texts, but when I opened messenger there weren't any recent texts, just ones from before I got my phone repaired.

Any idea why these texts aren't coming through, and how to get them? I'd like to know if anything important was sent during the past two weeks.

Wait, I think I'm just an idiot. The texts would have came through while they were testing the phone, so they wouldn't pop up as notifications when I first got it back. Then it crashed and got stuck in a bootloop, so I wiped and restored from a previous backup. Since I wasn't able to do any backups before the wipe, that would have wiped the texts I received.

Damn, that sucks. Is there anyway I could get them back?

Well, I expected as much. Thanks anyway though.

What's the app you use to backup sms? Do you just have Titanium Backup scheduled to do it regularly?
