We receive lots of spam messages in our daily life. And we usually meet this situation: when we clear most unwanted messages out, there is some important information being deleted accidentally. Is there a way for us to settle this problem to help us recover the deleted text messages we valued?

Generally if you are using iPhone, you can restore iPhone from the previous backup to get the deleted messages back. But as we all know, recovering from iCloud and iTunes backup will erase your device and you will get a full restore which includes other unnecessary data. Even worse, after the full recovery, you will find that this backup does not contain the deleted message you need. Android also offers some methods which you can attempt to retrieve deleted messages to some extent, but such methods do not guarantee complete recovery.

So if you have no usable iCloud or iTunes backup and you not sure whether the backup contains the deleted messages, even you are trapped by Android recovery, a third-party way can help you out. Professional data recovery applications enable you to selectively pick what you really want to recover even without a backup. And the good news is that if the text messages are not deleted from iPhone and Android for long, there has a great chance to recover them within minutes and in an efficient manner.

At the rest of this post, I will introduce different detailed ways about how to recover deleted text messages on iPhone and Android. Have a check now.

How to Recover Deleted Text Messages on iPhone

Way 1: Recover Deleted Text Messages on iPhone with iTunes Backup

Make sure you have done backups before and the backup that you prepare to restore contains the deleted text messages you want. And Please turn off Find My iPhone before the restore.

Then follow the steps:

1. Launch iTunes on the computer and connect your iPhone to the computer, then click the phone-shaped icon.

2. Click Summary and click Restore Backup.

3. Choose the most relevant iTunes backup in terms of the backup data and size.

4. Click Restore and wait for the restore process. Then go to the Messages app on the iPhone to check the text messages.

Way 2: Recover Deleted Text Messages on iPhone with iCloud Backup

All the existing files and data on the iPhone will be erased after the recovery from iCloud backup. The newly created data, like new photos, will be wiped away. And you must make sure the text messages that you want to recover are included in the backup. Check the instructions below:

1. Open Settings app on iPhone. Go to General > Reset, and click Erase All Content and Settings.

2. Reach the Apps & Data screen and tap Restore from iCloud Backup. Input your Apple ID and password.

3. Select the iCloud backup contains the messages you need and then wait for the restore process. Finally, go to Messages app to check if the text messages you need are back.

To be honest, if you have backed up your iPhone to iTunes or iCloud, we do not suggest you directly restoring your iPhone from iTunes/iCloud backup, because.

• iTunes and iCloud do not support to preview what data is stored in the backup. Therefore we have some difficulties in making sure whether the deleted text messages are there or not.

• We need to reset iPhone firstly during the process of restoring from iTunes and iCloud backups, which means all the data and files on iPhone will be erased, even the newly created data. If the backup does not contain the deleted text messages you want, the storage which contains the deleted text message on iPhone will be written by the backup files, and all the messages you need will be gone forever.

We sincerely recommend you trying PhoneRescue for iOS.
