Hi

Thanks for using JustAnswer. I am happy to assist you with this issue. The best way i have found to recover text messages and other data from an iphone is to use dr. fone by Wondershare. I worked for a Data Recovery company for almost 9 years and we used it there. No tool is successful 100% of the tiime, but this is your best bet. Here's a link to the site for the tool and some information about how it works. It comes with a free trial, too. Here's the link. If you can't click on it, just copy and paste it into your browser. Feel free to reply with any questions.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
