“I lost my iPhone 4 and have not been receiving all my iMessages on my replacement phone. Is their any way to access those iMessages? Thank you! iPhone 4, mac book pro”
This user’s problem is quite obvious: he had lost his iPhone 4 and he wanted to access the old iMessages from the lost iPhone 4, but he had no idea to do so. Here is another question for this user: as his iPhone 4 was lost, if he wanted to access the iMessages in iPhone 4, he needed to have a backup file for the iMessages on iPhone 4. If he did not have an iCloud or iTunes backup, then it is hard to get back those iMessages. Here I want to show you how to recover iMessages from iTunes or iCloud backup files of the lost iPhone 4.

In order to recover iMessages from lost iPhone 4, it is necessary to rely in the help of the iOS Data Recovery software like iFonebox, Dr Fone for iOS, Aiseesoft FoneLab and more. Such software is supportive to extract your iPhone/iPad backup data like messages, iMessages, contacts, notes, photos, voice memos and other data from iTunes or iCloud backup files. Plus, it is also helpful to recover your iPhone or iPad deleted data directly. Pretty functional and powerful. Here, I prefer to recommend Dr Fone for iOS, for Dr Fone is more powerful as to the message recovery function. Dr Fone is supportive to transfer the messages from iTunes backup to your new iPhone directly. So I think in the iMessages recovery problem, it is the best choice.
How to recover iMessages from lost iPhone 4?
After installation, you can follow the simple steps:
- Launch Dr Fone for iOS. Choose Recover from iTunes Backup. You can connect your new iPhone to the computer if you want to transfer those iMessages to your iPhone directly.
