Re: Restoring deleted text messages

Hi there,

 

If you backup your device regularly you could more than likely restore the messages.. Optus nor any other telco I know restore SMS. 

Cheers Dave

Re: Restoring deleted text messages

Thanks Dave but my phone hasn't been backed up since last year (my bad) & I've only been able to retrieve messages from then & not the most recent & important ones 😞

Re: Restoring deleted text messages

What a pain! You're then fullly informed that I found you don't back it up there's nothing to restore (currently). Sadly I wouldn't be surprised if that area has already been over written. Don't bother with those dodgy app that claim to restore stuff (never seen one work) but they're good to take your desperate money.

Cheers Dave

Re: Restoring deleted text messages

If you have a Google account, it can back it up all for you and restore it when you need it. 

 

You usually notice this feature when changing to another Android device.

Re: Restoring deleted text messages

There is a possibility to get back lost/deleted text messages from phone. You should check your backup first. It might happen that you have created backup of old text messages somewhere and it will help you to come out of the situation.

But I know that lots of users don't keep a backup of their valuable data and text messages especially. So in this situation, I would suggest you to use a powerful recovery sofwtare that can easily recover lost text messages from phone.

It is possible to recover deleted text messages from Android device. First, you can check your local backup of your phone in setting app. If you have found SMS and messages Local backup then, you restore it on your mobile. If you doesn't able to restore data from local backup of mobile then, you can also take the help of Android Data Recovery. It can recover all types of lost data from Android phone.
