    Hello,
    If you didn't make a backup, I'm afraid that "deleted" indeed means they're gone. One thing though: you might check the text message history (the tabs on top of the screen) to see if they're also gone there.

    Hi

    I accidentally deleted all the txts from a friend, so I assumed they were gone forever...

    But in contacts view under history I can see the first line of the messages!!!

    So i was really happy to see they were not gone but when I tried toview them it says message deleted...

    does that mean there is still a copy of them and if it does how do I recover them???

    thank you very much for any help!

    Hi DiscoSue,
    I have exactly the same problem. Did you manage to retrieve your deleted text messages? Please let me know.

    Hi again,
    I guess the message history only shows the title of the message that has been deleted, not the entire one. So I'm afraid they're really gone.

    I would really like to know where deleted messages go..into cyber space I guess :thinking:
    On a computer it's the Recycle Bin, I wonder why phones don't have one?
    Just a thought, not a serious question!

    i would say run a file recovery software if it was a PC, but android is just a mobile OS and we can expect miracles to happen there, if your messages are that important to you then always keep an app that backs up your sms as soon as it lands on your phone, there is no solution for this but you can prevent it from happening..

    For the one who still has the same question, first stop using your phone in case of data overwritten. Then we can use a Samsung data recovery program to get them back, like Coolmuster Lab.Fone for Android. Of course, if there is a backup of your deleted data, you can directly recover from backup files.

    I have encountered the same experience as OP, though this is an old thread. You know, data loss is a common issue. :(
    As I know, those deleted messages are still existing inside our phone but invisible. In the case that I have no backup my messages before, I have no way but to choose the Android Data Recovery tool from FORecovery for help. At first, I just wanna to take a free trial to see if this really works for me. But out of my surprise, it really works and I get back all my deleted messages. By the way, I think the best function is that you can preview the details of scan result, which really worthy.
