It’s possible to recover deleted text messages that were accidentally lost or deleted. Follow this step-by step guide to quickly and safely recover your texts.
If you regularly backup your iPhone to your computer, this is the easiest way to recover your lost text messages.
Please note that this method will replace your current data with your most recent backup.
Most iPhones automatically backup SMS messages to the iCloud. All iPhone users receive 5GB of free iCloud space. If you’ve upgraded your account, it is likely that all of your text message data is stored safely.
2. Once you find the right backup, you’ll need to reset your device by going to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings.
3. Your device will ask how you’d like to set up the device. Select to restore it from an iCloud Backup.
4. Your device will then restore its data to the selected backup and the lost messages will be recovered.
Just because you clicked “delete” doesn’t necessarily mean your message is gone. If you don’t use iTunes or iCloud to keep your data backed up, you may be able to recover deleted iPhone data using a third-party data recovery app. These apps also work with Android devices. There is a large market for data recovery apps that don’t actually work very well. If the companies don’t have a clear explanation of how recovery will work or any contact information on their websites, it’s best to stay away. Two companies with good reputations are Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery and PhoneRescue by iMobie.
It’s always a good idea to maintain an up-to-date backup of your important data and messages. That way you never have to worry about accidentally deleting an important text message.
Every day we hear from customers who use their personal phones for business matters. This is tempting, especially if you’re a small business owner on a budget. But while this may be convenient at first, it soon becomes hard to manage. It can also lead to costly mistakes if you delete important business messages when all you really meant to do was remove yourself from a group text you’re not interested in. If you’re sending texts for a professional purpose, it’s best to use a business texting service instead.
