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!

Hi Loie,

Sorry, I submitted this post before, but I don't think it was a reply to yours and it was suppose to be! Please let me know if you see it anywhere, as it will not let me post anything with similar content...

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.

If the memory card is not working even when connected to system also we can recover by using any apps.. I think if the deleted media or wiped data can only recover by above mentioned.

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.
