Anyone know how to recover text messages from a nokia phone. Deleted in error.

What model of Nokia phone ?

Does it have an MMC card ?

Do you have PC Suite for it and the cable to connect it to your PC ?

Nokia 3510i. A suite and cable? No I think.

sorry what's an MMC card?

It looks like your phone doesn't support PC Suite (this is software that runs on a PC that allows you to interact with the phone and may allow you to get access to certain files).

So, the bad news is that recovering the text messages is not going to be at all easy as it involves using equipment that only authorised service centres (and Nokia engineers) will have and knowledge that the service centre staff may not have but the Nokia engineers may have.

You cold try contacting NOKIA UK to see if they can help (click here)

Email me if you need any more help.

An MMC is a memory card that fits into some devices (phone/camera/MP3 player etc) to extend their memory capacity. I've checked your phone model and it doesn't support them.

They are used in imaging phones and those that play music so that the pictures and music are stored on them and not on the phone memory which is generally more limited.

Your line provider will keep all text messages for at least 5 years. If they will let you have a copy is another matter.
