Where Do the Deleted Messages Go?

Your deleted messages are not actually being deleted from your phone. When you remove a text message from the inbox, the data about the text message is still maintained on the phone temporarily. When this storage space is later needed for other content, the phone wipes the data and reallocates the memory to the other content.
