Hi

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.

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 :-(

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

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.

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.
