How to recover a deleted SMS?

Sometimes you need to recover deleted SMS. It’s possible through some special software and hardware. You’re probably wondering if it's even possible. Or how can you do this? Can you do it your self? Answer is yes. You can recover deleted SMS. It can be by you or sometimes by taking help of any expert authority or individual.

This technology used mainly by detective and forensic authorities. But now it’s available to the public too. Some software allows the user to see all files on a SIM card to a computer file. At the same time users can also analyze the stored numbers and text messages.

Why to Recover SMS?

People normally delete SMS after reading or when inbox capacity becomes full. But from time to time you receive important data via SMS, which may needed some other time. It may be an important address or a phone number. And we also write a password, a PIN or any other things and save it in outbox.

SMS Delete Process

There is a special file where SMS are stored. There are few “slots” where SMS are saved. When SMS capacity is filled then you have to delete an old SMS to save a new SMS. But deleted SMS are still hidden and saved at lower level. So by taking help of specific soft and hardware we can recover deleted s SMS.

Basic Process to Recover

There are lots of products available in market. You can GOOGLE it and get what is suitable for you. In this hub I am going to share basic process to recover deleted SMS from your mobile.

  1. Remove the SIM card from your phone.
  2. Insert it into your SIM card reader.
  3. Plug your SIM card reader into your computer.

  6. Access the data on the SIM card.

      Shweta you can retrieve messages from 6 months ago if the memory hasn't been replaced - goe sthe same if you're doing it with a SIM card but it tends to have less space than a phone.
