Recovering deleted text history on iPhone 4s

  PC_HelpMe 09:15 12 Jul 2014


I hope this is the right place to ask.

One of my text conversations has been accidentally deleted and I wonder if there is a way if getting it back - that isn't to do with iTunes. My last backup was October 2013 as it has always crashed my computer so I stopped using it. I would love to get back to text conversation onto to my phone.

Any advice or links would be greatly appreciated.

Erm I'm not a spammer?

But I've found software that has retrieved the deleted messages - it just didn't restore them back on to my phone as it said it would.

Nothing at all. I use this site regularly but usually about my computer not my phone. Users have always been very helpful to me.

I've found this Phone rescue. The site look ok but I have no idea if it's free or not and have never used it. It's certainly worth a look but if you try it, it will be at you own risk I'm afraid.

Thank you rdave13 - I've managed to "recover" them onto my computer - but they won't go back on to my phone for some reason even though the software I found said I could recover them to my device. At least they're not lost forever I suppose.

Thank you to those who helped.
