The most popular and well-rated cell phone applications for the recovery of deleted text messages are WonderShare Dr. Fone for iOS and Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery, as relayed by the tech-help company PC Advisor.
Third-party applications are just one way to recover deleted text message files. These applications usually come at a price, so many cell phone users attempt to first recover deleted text message via a cloud account or iTunes backups. However, not all cell phone users utilize cloud accounts or connect their mobile devices to applications such as iTunes. Furthermore, files larger than SMS messages may be more difficult to recover.
