You can get some software from ElcomSoft that will download the backup if you have the account username and password. The backup will consist of a bunch of files. One of them will be called sms.db. It contains the text messages. It is actually a SQLite database. I found that the SQLiteManager plugin for Firefox works well for reading it. The texts are stored in a table called messages which has the time and phone number as well. You can open it with a text editor as well and see the texts but you wont be able to tell the phone number or date of the text that way.
I think by default the IPhone stores 4 or 5 backups and backs up daily. You will only see the texts that were on the phone when it was backed up. Deleted texts are gone for good.
