Why recover deleted SMS and MMS
The error is human. It may happen to delete this very important SMS containing the number of your likely future employer or your ideal man / woman. Another wasted opportunity here is your mania for keeping the smartphone in order. Don't worry, there is a way to recover missing text messages in the air, the important thing is to act as quickly as possible.
Retrieving messages using a computer
Procedure for retrieving data using a computer
Whichever application you use (MobiKin, Dr Fone or another), the operating mode is more or less as follows:
- Download and install data recovery software
- Launch the relevant software and connect your Android to your computer (via USB)
- Activate USB debugging (if not already done)
- Go to settings
- Go to the device
- Tap 7 times on the box Build number. As soon as this is done, a pop-up, warning you that the "Options for developers" have been activated, is displayed on the screen.
- Follow the instructions given on your computer screen, usually you should run an analysis
The faster you do it, the more chance you have of recovering deleted messages
Once the analysis is complete, you access the data on your Android, whether it has been deleted or not. In principle, if the memory location has not been allocated other data, they remain accessible. Choose the data you want to restore, validate, and you're done.
That said, keep in mind that the faster you do it, the more likely you are to recover deleted messages. From the moment you erase a message, it is not completely erased since it resides for a certain time in the virtual memory of your Android until it is replaced by something else.

How to recover deleted SMS: SMS Backup & Restore
To avoid having to carry out the manipulation to recover deleted SMS or MMS, the simplest is to make regular backups of your messages. Here, too, there are a plethora of applications, each as good as the other. We did the test by taking one of them at random and it seems to work quite well. The latter is called "SMS Backup & Restore".
- App version: 10.1
- App size: depends on the device used
- Compatibility of the app: depends on the device used
- Economic model: free
SMS Backup & Restore
As soon as the application launches, you will access the configuration menu. The application is simple and intuitive and works in synchronization with Gmail, which obviously implies that you have a Gmail account.
There are also options for saving your messages and calls with Dropbox or on your device itself, although the latter is not encouraged. You can choose what should be saved (SMS, MMS, call log). Synchronized messages can also be deleted automatically after a certain amount of time, as you can see below.
The backup settings are interesting, you can configure various items, including the frequency with which synchronization should be performed. Of course, you can also start the backup by pressing "Back up now" or restore your data by pressing "Recover".
Of course, there are also other equally practical and equally reliable solutions such as:
