Recover Deleted Messages for Your Loved One

If your husband accidentally deleted text messages on their phone, then this guide will help you recover them. There are really great tools out there for this, so the process is very simple. To do this, you need a computer, phone and USB cable. You will get to know how to help your close one never lose your text messages again.

Part 1 Demands (requirements for recovery)

The fact is that restoring text messages for your loved one, even if they did not make a backup, requires root rights, which you must install anyway. This applies to both mobile and desktop applications. The difference is that desktop applications can independently establish root rights (and even then, not always), but they require a connection to a computer or laptop. Therefore, we will tell you about SMS recovery using one popular application for smartphones and tablets. In this case, you will not need the help of a computer. If root rights are missing, take care of their installation. Just remember that root rights remove devices with a warranty and if something goes wrong, you will no longer be able to exchange or repair it for free.

Part 2 How to retrieve deleted files (include messages, photots, etc)

Dr.fone data recover software is the right tool:

Despite the name - Dr.Fone Data Recovery - this is not a mobile application, it is installed not on a phone, but on a pc. Dr. Fone data recover works on both windows and mac OS, so the program settings and steps are the same for all versions of the application. 

Note: There is a possibility that the program will not work on the latest versions of samsung or google pixel - due to the level of data protection of the devices. In addition, it becomes more and more problematic to establish root access with each new version of android.

  5. Activate the " USB debugging " option.

Step 3:

 Connect the phone to the computer

  1. To synchronize between Dr.Fone and android, you need installed USB drivers for your mobile device. But, as a rule, you can do without them. 

  2. Connect your phone to a pc using a USB cable (supplied with your phone).
  3. Check if Dr.Fone responds when the phone is connected via USB. A corresponding animation screen saver will appear in the program window.  
  4. You should see a pop-up window with a superuser request on the screen of the mobile device. 
  5. You need to click on “allow” to allow access, otherwise the program will not be able to access the phone memory where messages are stored.
  6. Fone will install a special application on your phone - connector.
  7. If you already have a root app installed on android, you must allow superuser access in the same way.

  5. Choose a convenient file format for saving. 

Attention! The free version of Dr.Fone only allows you to view examples of recovery results. To save, you must purchase the full version of the product. 

Recommended Precaution

Backups are often irreplaceable. There is nothing worse than losing all valuable information on your phone or computer and then finding out that you have never backed up your valuable smartphone data, photo albums or documents.

Advise your close ones to always make a backup before installing root rights or a new ROM. The reason is simple: some actions require a factory reset and therefore erase your data, so it's best to move it to another location so that you can recover it later.
