I need to retrieve deleted text messages

Customer Question

I need to retrieve deleted text messages

Hi there,

There are two ways to retrieve deleted text messages:

1. Contact your phone carrier. Most will have it on their system for 7 days. Sometimes they can have it resent. There is no real structure, so you might want to try calling a few times to get different Customer service people - some may be more helpful than others.

2. To retrieve deleted text messages on any phone, the first thing you need to do is stop any sending and receiving any more messages - this is because the information of the deleted text messages are still on the SIM card, but if they are overwritten with a new message, then they are gone for good.
