retrieving deleted text messages from cell phone

by sonyashores / April 18, 2007 11:48 AM PDT

I have read there are programs that you can buy that will retrieve deleted text messages on a cell phone...maybe from the SIMS card. I have a verizon phone. Will this work? What is a good program to use? If I remove the SIMS card from the phone to retrieve the data will it wipe information from the phone?

Verizon phones do not have SIM cards. i dont know of any way to get deleted messages back. even if there is a way, it shouldn't cost money!

Well this may be true but even then it has to eb preatty recent because if u deleteed teh texts a while ago, what it really deos is put em up to be overwritten when the new texts come in, so technically this should be possible, but as far as specific programs go, I havent heard of any for cellphones...
