Have you experienced accidentally deleted an important text message which is really important that will truly break you if lost? And you do not have any idea on how you could bring it back? That was a really terrifying experience to happen. I’ll be helping you to recover lost SMS from your Android device. But before proceeding let me tell you how deleting works on mobile phones.
How Deletion Works
We sometimes come to the point of deleting some files or MESSAGES on our Android phones. A lot of people thought that if we already press the delete button, those deleted items would not be retrieved anymore. But the truth is the other go around.
If we delete an item on our Android devices, it does not mean that the system will delete it entirely from the device. The system will just make it inactive and that’s why it couldn’t be seen on the screen anymore. That is also the reason why we could still recover it. Though it will be entirely deleted finally, not immediately. So if you deleted the important SMS, I advise not using your device temporarily before the data being overwritten.
I will show an easy and not time-consuming way of recovering a deleted text message - using Android SMS Recovery Software that would really help you with your problem.
The Android SMS recovery software that I am talking about is no other than DataKit Android Data Recovery. This data recovery tool has the feature of retrieving deleted text messages and it is compatible with various of brands like Samsung, HTC, LG, Huawei, Sony and many more. The good thing is it can also recover documents, photos, music, videos, etc. You don’t need a knowledgeable person towards recovery. All you just need is a few simple clicks.
Steps of Recovering Deleted Text messages
Step 1 You need to download the software first and launch it on your personal computer, then connect your Android phone to your PC using a USB Cable.
Step 2 You will see an interface where you are going to choose from the three options. You should choose Android Data Recovery.
Step 3 Enable the USB Debugging Mode on your Android device if you haven’t enabled it before. To enable it, follow these steps:
For Android 2.3 or older, Navigate to Settings - Applications - Development - USB Debugging.
For Android 3.0-4.1, go to Settings - Develop Options - USB Debugging.
For Android 4.2 or newer, go to Settings - About Phone - Tap the Build Number about 7 times until "You are a now a developer" appearing.
Step 4 You will be on a different interface where you will choose what type of data you want to recover. So click “ Messages”, and then click the “Next” button to proceed.
Step 5 The software should have the access to your Android OS. So it will root your phone by automatically installing a rooting app after taping Allow/Authorize/Grant on the screen.
Step 6 After that, the program starts scanning the deleted items from your Android device. Once it is done, the recoverable items will be shown up. Click Messages on the left and check the items you want to retrieve on the right. Then click Recover to save them on the computer.
I believe that you have already had your lost text message back. No matter how powerful the program is, remember to back up your Android device every now and then. Better safe than sorry after all.
