This post will show you how to extract SMS from broken Samsung devices.
"Oh no, oh gosh no, I didn't actually think that this could happen to me, there must be some sort of mistake... I was just using my phone and I looked away for one second as I was about to put it down on a table and... well, I missed the table! It was a stupid and it was a complete accident, I mean who misses an entire table? I immediately picked up my phone but that sickening thud made me realize that it was unlikely that my phone survived. The blinking screen that kept mocking me as I desperately touched the screen hoping to get a response kept blinking at me, unresponsive and I could tell, it hated me a little. I love my Samsung Android phone, but let's face it, even if I get this repaired it would only be a shadow of the phone it was before. I can give everything up, except my messages. I have some messages saved back from almost 2 years ago and I don't have any backup! Please tell me I can still somehow extract that information? It's not impossible, right? Right? Someone, please let me know!"
Recover messages from broken Samsung
It can happen unexpectedly and it can happen to pretty much anyone, just one clumsy moment and we can say goodbye to our Samsung phones. There are a lot of people who have dropped their phones, let's all accept that reality but like most of us, most of the time our phones come out of it a little scratched, maybe even a little dented but usually none the worse for wear.There are the unfortunate moments, however, that even a fall from a short height is more than enough to crack the screen or cause some rather nasty damage to a number of phones, not only limited to Samsung units. Seeing as how we depend on our phones for quite a bit of daily tasks, we are clearly disarmed when we suddenly find ourselves in the precarious position of not having our trusty mobile phone by our side.Thankfully, with so much technology out there, most of the time we can have our phones repaired or replaced given any moment. While this will indeed cost some extra funds that we were not expecting to spend, the two options usually help any broken phone user. However, if you do repair your phone, it can suddenly cause some data loss or perhaps the data was already lost as soon as your phone fell? Perhaps they'll need to reformat your phone and any chance of recovering the previous information might go down the drain too. As for a replacement, unless you have everything backed up properly, you might be in a rather tough position to recover anything at all.
Most of us have some rather important information stored on our phones, it isn't a surprise that we would want to get whatever information back we want from broken units. Much like the user above, a number of our messages are dear or very important to us that we would move mountains to recover them. It is also good to know that there are programs that are dedicated to doing just that and FoneDog Toolkit is a program that can do just that. FoneDog Toolkit Broken Android Data Extraction is a program that can help you recover your messages through a few simple steps. Follow these steps in order to get your information back.
