Resolved Question:

iphone 3G...I have deleted texts and didn't sync to my computer. Is there a way for me to get into the phone memory to look for deleted texts and photos to see if I can restore them?

Hello,

I am sorry to hear about this. There isn't an easy way to recover these messages if the iphone was never synced and a backup made. If you want you can watch the video on this web site http://www.wonderhowto.com/how-to-recover-deleted-text-messages-iphone-299236/
but I wouldn't do that unless you have to get these messages.

This is only available to law enforcement. Are you aware of a manual or program available to the public, whether it be free or something I'd purchase?

You could send the device to drive savers, looks like they offer data recovery on the iphone.

I have also been hunting for software that can do the recovery, so far I have only found windows software, nothing for the mac.
