Partially successful deleted text recovery

Phone type: LG VX9100

I was looking to recover a few deleted texts from this past weekend.  I know, there are a million forum posts all over on this topic.  I’ve read them all and still have a question. I downloaded BitPim (the fourth data recovery tool I tried) and I was able to recover four of texts that had been deleted. 

However, it only recovered the four that I hadn’t yet officially read.  They were short enough to read in the Inbox of this phone.  When I’d realized what I’d done I immediately stopped sending or receiving texts to avoid "bumping" the deleted queue. I assume that unread messages just get held longer than read ones before permanent deletion from the phone. 

I do consider myself fortunate that I even got that far but I thought if that’s possible, maybe recovering the other four is as well.  Any similar experiences?  Any advice?
