How to Recover Deleted Text Messages from Android Smartphone

Text messages or SMS have long been forgotten as means of personal communication. However, messages have always been a way of serious communication between giant corporations and their consumers. For example, every month, you receive your phone bill via text message and not through WhatsApp. Similarly, banks send alerts to customers on text message; power companies dispatch bills using text messages.

This creates some value of text messages in your Android device. You would think twice before you delete those messages as they record your expenses and income of the month. However, in case you delete some messages by mistake, it would be difficult for you to recover deleted text messages from Android smartphone.

This information will explain how you can recover those messages from your Android device.

How to Recover Deleted Text Messages from Android Phone

To recover deleted messages, you need to enable USB debugging mode on your device. If you don’t know how to do this, take a look at the steps mentioned below.

How to enable USB debugging mode on Android phone:

Step #1: Launch Settings app on your Android phone.

Step #2: Tap About Phone option.

Step #3: At the bottom of your phone’s screen you will see Build Number; you need to keep tapping on Build Number until it says, “You’re now a Developer!”

Step #4: Go back to the Settings and you will see Developer options above About Phone option. You need to tap on Developer options.

Step #5: Next, tap on check box USB debugging; you will be asked to confirm your action. Tap on OK.

Your Android device is now USB debugging enabled; this means your phone is in Debug mode when USB is connected. Before you go ahead, please note that you will be required to download recovery software for Android. Though most of the software are free, this FoneLab is a paid one. This software is available for Windows/Mac and Android & iOS. If you are tempted to download its trial version, you will regret later as it doesn’t recover deleted messages.

How to Recover Deleted Text Messages on Android Devices

Step #1: First off, download FoneLab Android data recovery software on your Windows computer or Mac.

Step #2: Once it is set up on your computer, open the FoneLab and connect your Android phone by using USB cable.

Step #3: A message will appear and ask you to enable USB debugging mode; you have already done this earlier and hence, tap on OK.

Step #4: Now select “Messages” in the software and click “Next”. This will initiate scanning process.

Step #5: FoneLab will make efforts to root and unroot your Android device for deep search; click “Continue Scanning” anyway.

Step #6: Once scanning process is completed, select the messages you want to recover and then click on “Recover”.

Your messages will now be recovered from Android smart device. Check all the messages to confirm that they are recovered properly without losing any content or data. I would like to reemphasize the need of text messages as they carry your monthly or yearly expenses and income data. Hence, you should spend some bucks to recover the valuable data.

Price: $27.96 (Mac/Windows)
