Restoring Galaxy S3 Messages

About a year ago, I backed up all of my data to Verizon Cloud. Messages, Contacts, everything. Somebody restored my Galaxy s3 without permission, so those messages are gone off of the phone. The Galaxy is not activated as my iphone is now. Since you cannot transfer messages to an iphone, is there a way to restore those messages back to the Galaxy S3 without reactivating it?

ryan4708, I understand wanting to get those messages restored back to your Galaxy S3. It is always nice to get those messages as a reference.  You can use Verizon Cloud to restore that information back to the phone without it being activated. Just make sure the phone is able to connect to a WIFI source. http://vz.to/1Jq5EzN

Every time I attempt login it gives me an error because I don't have a SIM card. Anyway to get past this?

The phone likely needs to active on the line in order for the Verizon Cloud to restore properly.

Is it possible to have two phones activated on the same line?

is it possible to access this without a SIM card?

If not can I activate it while having an iPhone activated at the same time?

Only one phone can be activated on a line at a time.
