Part 1. Attention! Common Ways to Break Your Android Phone

One of the most common problems is to shatter Android phones. Do you know that mobile phones are easily broken by various situations? So, here I summarize the most common conditions that may cause Android to be broken in everyday life:1. The phone is damaged by water soaking. People like to use mobile phones in the toilet. Therefore, it is a common problem that the mobile phone falls into the toilet or toilet. Of course, you can restore your phone by drying it, but there is no guarantee that it will be fine.2. Use a custom operating system to make calls. This is another case where your Android phone can be broken. Although the device is not physically damaged, you cannot use the wrong custom operating system to run the phone3. The phone accidentally fell. When you do something specific on your phone, when you accidentally bump into something, the phone can easily slip out of your hands and cause you to crash.

Part 2: Is It Possible to Restore SMS from Broken Android?

If you accidentally broke your Android phone, you can recover your email from your Android phone because most of the data is stored in internal or external memory and they may be safe even if the device is physically damaged. However, getting data on a damaged Android is cumbersome.

Therefore, if you have previously used a Google account to back up your Android, you can easily restore your backup files to other Android phones. But what if you don't have a backup?Android phone is broken, but no backup?

In this case, you need to consider recovering lost messages from a broken Android phone. You can't use your phone to recover lost text messages. You can try to access the SD card and search for the Messages.db file, but most likely you cannot find it.

However, these files are safe, but they require special software to access them. Another problem that may be encountered during the recovery process is that the data is corrupted or damaged at the time of recovery. This will make the entire recovery process in vain.

Part 4: How to Get Deleted Messages Back from Android?

It is an unfortunate fact that many of us on the off-chance may have accidentally deleted an important message on our cell phones. Now, what if you wanted them back because they may have contained crucial information? Well folks, either if it was by accident or fully intentional, the damage has already been done… or has it?

We apologize for the scare but on the bright side to be completely honest and perhaps a relief to those looking to get them back, all of your messages actually still exist. In our smartphones, deleted messages go into a virtual space in which they are fragmented and put on standby to be replaced with something else.

Imagine a paper shredder cutting up documents into itty-bitty pieces and waiting in the bin underneath. Now we know that putting them together physically is simply asking the impossible (except for the CSI), but since this is virtual you barely would even need to bat an eye when using software - such as the FoneDog toolkit - Android Data Recovery.

Now, if you have deleted a message recently or perhaps weeks before, don’t worry since chances for retrieving them is very high. So take a breather and sit back, because we have just the solutions for you today!

To get started, free download Android Data Recovery by FoneDog Developer to try.
