How to Save iPhone Text Messages

I deleted the messages about my clients from my iPhone 5 on Sunday morning by accident and stupidly had not backed-up. Can anyone help me get those messages back?


There are thousands of critical SMS in my iPhone 5s, which take much space of my phone. I do not want to delete them, but how can I save them in my PC?
