I was wondering if anyone has ever successfully recovered deleted text messages and how they did it. I am looking to retrieve messages that I’ve seen in spotlight but have deleted and now want them back. Also, I have seen posts about recovery software, however, has anyone successfully used any of these types of software, are they safe?
You can get deleted text messages back if you had backed up your iPhone to iTunes or iCloud before you deleted the message. If the messages exist in the backup, then they can definitely be recovered. Other than that you have to find third party software that can recover lost text messages. A professional and convenient recovery software must be what you’re looking for. Therefore I’m going to recommend iFonebox to you.
Here’re some key features of iFonebox:
- Various kinds of recovery modes: recover from iOS device, recover from iTuns backup, recover from iCloud backup
- Compatibility: Apply to all kinds of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
- Security: 100% safe and cause no damage to your computer
- Preview function: enable you to see detailed recoverable data
- Selectively restoration: choose the items that you really want
- Never wipe out any current information on your device
Compared to tradition recovery mode, iFonebox is capable of scanning your device in depth. As long as the deleted data are not cleared by new ones, you can still have a gig chance to get them back. To avoid data being overwritten, you’d better stop using your phone and enable the flight mode as soon as possible. And the earlier you scan the data on the iPhone, the more data you can get them back.
Use this as a learning experience and back up from now on. You can also use iFonebox as a handy data transfer tool. It can help you transfer up to 17 kinds of data from your device to computer like contacts, photos, videos, voice memos, reminders, safari history, call logs, etc. Sounds amazing, right?
iFonebox has two available versions: Windows version and Mac version. Please make sure to download and install the right version for your computer. Once you have installed the program, here’re the steps to restore the missing texts.
Step one: Launch iFonebox
Connect your iPhone to the computer, in this interface, you’ll see “Next” in blue area, click it to continue. It’s necessary to enable the flight mode and keep the USB cable connected stable during the progress.
Step two: Scan data
It will scan automatically after you click the “Messages” icon, the duration depends on the amount of your data so it might take your some time, please wait patiently.
Step three: Get back data
After the scan completes, a list of messages will show up on your program interface. Now you can recover them, choose the items you want and click the “Recover to pc” or “Recover to device” button.
