"I regret deleting all conversations between me and my boyfriend after an intense quarrel. I don't want to lose that sweet memory. Please help, is there a solution to get the deleted text messages back? By the way, my phone is running Android operating system."
Have your precious data deleted by mistake? It must be heartbreaking! Wondering whether there is a possibility to undelete text messages?
Don't panic! After you understand how deletion works, you will come down.
Tricks You Should Know about How Deletion Works
I guess most of us don't know exactly how it works on mobile devices. Actually, it's not a complicated procedure. When you delete a file like a text message, it isn't erased from the system, or at least it won't be immediately.
Your mobile device just simply marks the deleted file as inactive. That's to say, it becomes invisible and replaceable. On the other hand, it can be also recovered if use a proper tool to help you.
To avoid the deleted file be replaced by new data, you'd better stop using your phone after it is deleted or lost.
1 How to Retrieve Deleted Text Messages
I will show you the quickest way on recovering deleted SMS from an Android phone. If you are an iPhone user, you can try to retrieve lost data from an available iCloud/iTunes backup or turn to an iPhone SMS recovery tool for help when you don't have a backup. But please keep in mind that restoring an iCloud or iTunes backup means all current data on your iPhone will be replaced entirely by the data from the backup. Therefore, I suggest using a third-party tool which can selectively recover data from the backup or device.
