    I was abroad for 4 months with my iphone off.
    I took out my sim card for safe keeping.

    I ended up losing my iphone and I just got another one.

    I have the new and the old sim card still..

    Is there a way I can receive the text messages I got while my phone was off?

    I know I've gotten messages a few days later, but I don't know about 4 months. I'd say there's probably a limit to how long your carrier keeps trying to resend messages to your sim when it can't find it on the network. Have you tried getting in touch with your carrier? They would know better than anyone.

    i think they only save texts from 3 days.

    I do know they delete them after some time.

    My girlfriend kept sending me messages for 5 days when I had lost my iPhone. When I got it back only about the last half of them came in. There is some kid of limit on number of days that are saved.

    It depends on their settings. Most expire after 7 days if they arent delivered.

    what carrier are you on? if you are on o2 then you will be able to see all your messages through your bluebook.
