Please be more specific. What type of messages? Text messages? Email messages? Other types of message?

Let's say that you're referring to email messages. Because so many people delete stuff and then complain about it because they deleted them by mistake, Apple and numerous email providers tires to alleviate that problem by first sending deleted messages to a "deleted" messages folder. This give users the opportunity to retrieve messages they deleted by mistake. To permanently delete messages, delete them from the deleted messages folder.
