Steps of recoverring lost text messages from Samsung Galaxy Phone

How to Recover Deleted Messages from Samsung phone
1. Connect your Samsung device to the computer
Open the recovery tool application and it will prompt you to connect your Samsung phone to PC via USB.

2. Enable USB debugging on your Samsung Galaxy
If you have not opened the USB debugging option yet, this program will ask you to do it. And there are three ways to enable USB debugging for different Android OS version.
1) For Android 2.3 or earlier: Enter “Settings” < Click “Applications” < Click “Development” < Check “USB debugging”
2) For Android 3.0 to 4.1: Enter “Settings” < Click “Developer options” < Check “USB debugging”
3) For Android 4.2 or newer: Enter “Settings” < Click “About Phone” < Tap “Build number” for several times until getting a note “You are under developer mode” < Back to “Settings” < Click “Developer options” < Check “USB debugging”


 3. Analyze and scan your Samsung Galaxy for lost text
Now the program has detected your Samsung device, you can click “Start” button to go to the next step.


During the Android Data Recovery analyzing your phone, a pop – up will asking whether allow or not to proceed. Here you need to move to your phone and tap on “Allow” to enable the Superuser Request. And then click “Start” on the program’s window to begin scanning your device.

4. Preview and recover deleted Samsung messages
After scanning, the recoverable messages will be display in the scan result. Preview them one by one and mark those you want to back, at the last step is just click “Recover” to save them as a HTML file on your computer.


Note: SMS found here contains those you deleted recently (displayed in orange) and those existing on your Samsung (displayed in black). You can separate them by using the button above: Only display deleted items.

However this is not a full proof method to recover the deleted text messages. Whenever we delete a message it is been marked as useless information and resides in the phone until or unless a new data is overwritten on it. So if your old messages are overwritten then probably you won;t have any other way to recover them. So always try to backup your data from phone to any secure cloud network.
