Hi there and welcome

What you need to do is use a recovery program to try to recover the deleted messages from the phone.

You install the program on your computer, then connect the phone to the computer and run the program

The program will then scan the phone and if possible, recover the deleted messages

You can download the program from my link below

Install it on your computer, then run it and perform the scan on the phone

I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.

Else let me know the results please

Thank you

I'm concerned about security and cost here. From my search on-line I am aware that I need to download a recovery program. Let me know the cost of your service, please.
Expert:  Richard replied 9 months ago.

I cannot see anything about costs here sorry, you would need to contact customer service for this (I am only an engineer)
