Accidently deleted text messages
Enthusiast - Level 1


I accidently deleted 2 months of text messages that had pictures a friend sent me that are for a law suit.  How can I recover them?

Unfortunately, unless you had them backed up, you can't recover them.  You might get the past 3-5 days' worth from Verizon, but that would take a court order.  This won't help in this instance, but to prevent it from happening again, you may want to check Google Play for a text message backup app.
