    If you are stuck in a bootloop, without root, I am sorry to say you can not get to your texts. I think HTC has an online dashboard, but you might need to be able to access the OS of the phone to set stuff up on the phone end.

    If your phone is unlocked and you can somehow get it to a recovery mode you might be able to. However, if you are not rooted I don't know if you can grab what you need.
