How can I recover deleted text messages from verizon phone? Can you help me out?

“Hi, I just got a plan from Verizon with a Samsung Galaxy S8+. I’m happy about it, but I clumsily pressed the delete button on a conversation thread yesterday. The erased thread happens to be that of my boss. There are plenty of info there that I need for work. I need those text messages back as soon as possible.”

Part 1. Can Deleted Text Messages Be Recovered from A Verizon Cellphone?

With over 300 million subscribers, Verizon is the United States’ largest wireless telecommunications provider. It’s no surprise with its wide 4G LTE coverage and an affordable range of unlimited and prepaid plans. The company also offers customers an option to purchase a smartphone and pay for them via installment. While some devices come free as long as you avail of their plan, more expensive phones can become yours if you pay for 12 to 24 months.

Sad to say, any cellphone, even those from Verizon, is susceptible to data loss. If you have just deleted one important message or one whole thread by mistake, that will surely stress you out. What if we tell you that it’s possible to get those messages back? You may not take our word for it. To convince you, let us explain how phones generally work.

When files are deleted from a cellphone, they are simply stored in its internal memory. They stay intact until they are overwritten by new data. That being said, we advise you to stop using your device. If you continue to send out messages, take new pictures or use your apps, you will lower the chances of restoring your SMS. That’s why it is crucial that you go ahead with recovery once there has been an incidence of data loss.

Without further ado, we’ll share with you the best ways to recover deleted text messages from Verizon cellphone.

Part 2. Recover Deleted Text Messages from Verizon Phone with Backup

Do you have a backup app installed on your phone? If yes, it would be very easy to retrieve your lost SMS. Apps like SMS Backup+ and SMS Backup and Restore are designed to create a copy of users’ messages on their e-mail or Google Drive. Local backups can also be made. You have the option to access your SMS from those channels.

You can also restore your backup using the app. A mere click of the Restore button will instantly export SMS from the backup and save them back on your phone. You will then be able to see your messages when you open your Messages app.

But what if your last scheduled backup was 2 or 3 days ago? Then you received important text messages from your boss just yesterday. If that’s the case, do not proceed with restoring your backup. The app could only restore your needed SMS if the backup was done recently. If not, your effort will be futile.

What about people who don’t back up their text messages, you ask. Well, there is another solution that we are yet to introduce. Read on to know more about it.

My problem is not deleted items, my phone SCREEN is broken (Galaxy S5), so i will not be able to access the phone to do anything, except via USB on my laptop. It doesn't seem like your software is designed to work that way. I have gotten all my pics, vids and music via USB to my laptop and my memory and SIM cards are in a new phone, but i can't decode the Memo app that way and get the memos from the old phone. If you think you can help with that, let me know! I can't use SmartSwitch because i need to put it on my phone, and Keis is outdated. I am also looking for apps to mirror the phone on my laptop, which i guess is kinda what you do but i'm not sure. Thank you for all your hard work in creating this software to help us.
