There's lots of dodgy apps and programs for your PC out there, but apps that we've heard generally positive things about are:

These usually are free or come with a free trial. In general, the thing is that data may be ''lost'' but it is still recoverable until something else is written over the top of it. So there's a chance you can still recover data if you haven't been saving lots of stuff on your phone since you lost your messages.

Give it a shot and let us know if you had any success.

I have accidentally deleted all my SMS messages on my Galaxy S3, and luckily, I found another tool named Jihosoft Android Phone Recovery. It scanned my phone and really helped get back the lost messages.

Well, that was great Lily ! I haven't heard about Jihosoft Recovery but if it works out for you then its just amazing! Like @Loie has mentioned above there are also other recovery software stated above next time when you ran onto try Wondershre or Coolmuster it really offer different experience than others. ;)

These softwares are not free, I download and install them, it ask you to purchase the key code and register it, then it allows you to use it for recovering sms from Galaxy s5 without complex operation.

Hi Loie,

I was just wondering, when you say that I cannot add any new information as this will not permit any of these programs to work, does this include email as well? I re-started my friends phone for her, but she forgot to copy down a few contacts. She has already put in her email to receive emails through her phone, but she has not taken any new photos or added any new contacts. She has also received some texts already.

If I use one of these programs, and although the email is set up already, will it still work? And do I have to re-set the email on the phone again?

Hope to hear from you soon!

Thank you!

Another tool which is worth to recommend is MobiKin Doctor for Android :)

It offers two modes with "Android Data Recovery" and "SD Card Recovery" for different user needs. For messages, contacts and call logs, you need root device to recover.

I suggest Google Drive add the messages backup function as well as contacts backup.
By the way, you can use Samsung Smart Switch to backup and restore your phone data.

You can try to recover Samsung Galaxy messages in following two ways:
1.You can recover SMS from Android backup if you have backed up your data before.
2.If you do not have any backups. You may have to try to use some third-party recovery tool like Android SMS Recovery, which may help you get your deleted texts back.

To recover Samsung Galaxy messages, I think you should use a powerful software to help you regain your data, so that you can quickly find your significant data.
Samsung SMS recovery program can help you retrieve all your messages from your phone, and it without any risk, just use it.

For future reference in order to avoid SMS loss, you must use SMS Backup & Restore App Available in Play Store. This app will store all your SMS messages even if your messages get lost or accidentally deleted from Android stock SMS Message App.

Before restoring your Samsung text messages, you need to know one thing- why these deleted messages are recoverable? It is actually easy to understand if you know how deletion works:

When you delete or remove text messages on Samsung phone, they would be first moved to the trash bin and the device will mark these files as inactive. That is to say, they still exist on your phone but are invisible and replaceable. And the system would not really erase them until you add some new files to cover them. Thus, you should stop using your phone if you wish to get back the deleted SMS or you will permanently lose them.

Apart from that, you need to find a tool to retrieve the lost messages as soon as possible.

Restoring your lost Samsung messages to computer would be a safer way since you can backup them to PC at the same time. But to achieve this goal, you need to find a professional yet reliable Samsung SMS Recovery software as your assistant - MobiKin Doctor for Android (Win/Mac).

Lost text messages could be a disaster for every phone user because text messaging is a common way for communicating with others. Therefore, you'd better backup your Samsung text messages beforehand. But if unfortunately you have already lost them, you are no need to panic. As long as you haven't sent or received new text messages with your S8, the lost text messages haven't been overwritten, you still have the chance to get them back.

Samsung Data Recovery program empowers you the ability to recover deleted, lost and formatted text messages from Samsung Galaxy S8, as well as other Samsung phone models like Galaxy S9+/S9/S8+/S8/S7/S6,Note 6/5/4,A9/A8/A7,etc. What's more, this professional data recovery software also enables you to retrieve deleted and lost contacts, call history, photos, videos, music, documents and more from both internal memory and SD card in your Samsung phone.

When we deleted messages by accidents, you can retrieve deleted SMS from backup, or we'd better don't use our phone before recovering deleted SMS, because you will overwritten your deleted data if you import or export data. Use Android Message Recovery to scan your device deeply, and scan out deleted data. It's simple for us.
