How to Retrieve Deleted Text Messages on Android

By Emily Watson, Monday, June 15, 2015

I didn't find a thread like this for my Android phone until I'm missing all my text messages. So I would post this to share how I successfully retrieve deleted text messages on Android.

My text message settings had a cap on the number of texts per conversation, after which the oldest messages would be deleted. I wanted those messages back (I have disabled the cap).

At that moment, FonePaw Android Data Recovery flashed in my mind. The highlight of this program is its efficient recovery result. You can quickly and simply get back deleted SMS from Android smart phone. This software is compatible with all kinds of Android brands. Samsung, HTC, Sony, LG, and Google Nexus SMS recovery can turn to this program. Download the trial version and start a journey to experience this recovery tool.

Be More Effectively to Retrieve SMS Messages on Android

You are required to stop saving data on your Android phone as you know you have deleted some text messages and want to recover them.

Step 1. Make the Phone Connected to PC

Open FonePaw Android Data Recovery on your computer. Connect your Android phone to the PC. If you have previously turned on the USB debugging, the computer will automatically detect and recognize your phone. If not, go to enable USB debugging on your Android mobile.

Step 2. Set to Scan "Messages"

When your phone is successfully plugged into the computer, you will get the below window that asks you to select data types to scan. Tick "Messages" and then click "Next".

Step 3. Grant the Program to Access Your Phone

Before scanning, the program will attempt to access your Android mobile. This requires you to give permission to the software. Go to the phone. When the pop up occurs, hit "Allow/Grant/Authorize".
