We always delete text messages because of various reasons, for example, when you are angry with a friend, when you don’t want your messages to be seen by others, or when you want to free up some storage space for your iPhone. Whatever the reason is, you need to learn a way to find the deleted text messages on iPhone in case that you regret about the deleting or you realize later that you actually need them.
To make sure that you are always be able to look up the deleted text messages after the deleting, the direct and simple way is to back up your iPhone through iTunes or iCloud. In this way, you can recover deleted text messages from the iTunes or iCloud backup file which you should have.
If, unfortunately, you don’t have any backup file, there is no need to panic. You are still be able to extract the deleted messages text from iPhone directly. Here in this post I would like to introduce a third party iPhone data recovery utility to look up deleted text messages on iPhone.
iFonebox, as the most powerful and fastest iPhone data recovery software over the market, is adept to selectively look up the deleted text messages from iPhone. Here is how.
> Install and run iFonebox on your computer.
Note: iFonebox is available for both Windows and Mac, please choose the right version to download and install.
> Connect your iPhone to your computer.
> Click Start after your iPhone is recognized by iFonebox.
> Choose Messages to scan selectively by clicking on the related icon for Messages app from the interface listing all the supported data categories.
The scanning and data analyzing may take quite a while if you have a large number of text messages. Please wait patiently.
> Preview the exported text messages and select the deleted items only by checking “Only display the deleted”. Or you can simply select whatever you need.
> Click Recover to Device to transfer all the text messages you have selected to your iPhone for convenient looking up.
Note: Please switch on the “Airplane Mode” while recovering messages to device in case that the newly coming messages will interrupt the recovering process and leads to a recovering failure.
