Can you retrieve deleted texts from iPhone? Restore deleted SMS messages on iPhone

43 comments, most recent: Jonathan Watson said on : "

Hi Matt,

I'm so sorry to hear about all of your deleted messages! I have a few thoughts that might be helpful:
If you have a recent backup of your iPhone, you should be able to get most of your messages back from there. iTunes periodically backs up your phone when you're syncing music, videos, etc in iTunes, so you may have a backup and not know it.
I work on software that does deleted text-message recovery -- from my own work, I've seen a few reports of this "reset" of the text message app. I haven't seen it in a while though. I'm curious if the data underlying the text-message app is still there, and there's just a bug accessing it (in which case we could get a lot more of it back!) or if everything is totally gone. If you're interested in having me help you look for your missing messages (and of course helping me discover what the underlying issue is) drop us a note on our support page http://bit.ly/1deRFN7

and mention this thread (and my name, Kelly so it gets forwarded to me for sure.) … Obviously this offer extends to anyone else who stumbles across this thread with the same problem!

Note: As I mentioned, I work for the company that I've provided a link to above, so I could benefit (either monetarily or otherwise) from the link in this post.

Agree - updated my mid 2012 MBP to 16GB and a 1TB Samsung SSD and it's night and day. You especially see it it booting as well as intensive apps like compiling iMovies...

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 release date, price and specs 2014

Not water resistant no, if you look at pics the micro USB charging port is completely open, unlike if you look at the s5 there's a cover that keeps it water-tight.


Samsung Galaxy Note 4 release date, price and specs 2014

343 comments, most recent: The Patriot said on : "

The edge has the same specs as the 4 and obviously the fancy edge but the surrounding band of the edge is still plastic, unlike the 4 which is now metal.. that's what's tipping me towards the 4 and not the edge..

Apple OS X Yosemite: Release date, price and new features

55 comments, most recent: sjk1000 said on : "

The mac trackpad and workspaces make the Mac fantastic usability-wise, similar with the OSX base OS. Apart from that, Finder is a dog, as is the [un]install process and a stack of other things. I've used an iMac and Macbook for 5 years and I stil miss the Windows Start button. I could pick features of OSX and WIndows that I love and some that really can't believe still exist. I don't fully understand why some people are Mac or Windows die-hards, although I can but don't see them as entirely balanced or rational

Compro C200 Plus review

7 comments, most recent: Mr Techy said on 19 January 2011: "Although it was easy to set up, recording from decent quality VHS produced mediocre results. Any slight glitches in analogue tapes were much more pronounced rendering some clips unwatchable. Analogue tape owners should look elsewhere."

Apple MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010) 2.66GHz Core i7 review

5 comments, most recent: fubar1977 said on 17 January 2011: "Overall experience has been fantastic, this machine just does all I ask it to and has given me no problems at all. Buying a Macbook Pro has been a "leap of faith" that has paid off in every respect, only complaints have been minor OS peculiarities that disappear with familiarity. Totally Recommended."

Epson Stylus SX215 review

2 comments, most recent: User019283029 said on 15 January 2011: "Not a bad printer, but the quirks of not being able to print in "black only" mode, and not being able to scan unless all inks are OK is annoying. Quality is pretty good otherwise though!"

PhotoBox review

1 comments, most recent: zeromarks said on 11 January 2011: "Spoiled a gift for a birthday celebration, and has made me incredibly angry. The customer service was atrocious in my opinion, I found the staff rude and unprofessional. My card still hasn’t arrived, and isn’t expected to arrive for “another 4 – 6 days”. This is in total 12 days for the printing of a simple card!"
