Hi. Yes I would still like help with the question.Thanks

Unfortunately, there isn't. All of those programs will claim they work and none of them actually do.

That’s what I thought.I’ve been looking at more forensic style software. More costly, would they work?

Forensic style software works great on computers but I am not sure how they work on phones. A lot of the software programs will give you a free trial to see what it can recover before having to buy so I would recommend that route before spending a lot of money and being stuck with a program.
