Retrieving Old Or Deleted Text Messages From A Cell Phone

Retrieving deleted text messages from a cell phone can be done. First thing you should know is this can not be done remotely. This means you will have to get a hold of the target cell phone. If there is no way to do this then retrieval of the old texts is next to impossible.

SIM card reader

A SIM card is like a memory stick in the back of a cell phone. It is a small 3/4" by 3/4" piece of plastic with a notch cut out in one corner. Not all cell phones have SIM cards. Your first task would be to confirm the target phone has a SIM card. It would rest in the back of the mobile phone underneath the battery.

A SIM card reader costs under $100 and is about the size of a cigarette lighter. Once you have retrieved the card from the back of the phone you insert it into one end of the reader. The other end of the reader gets plugged into any laptop or desktop computer USB port. Most card readers have software built in to the device that will automatically launch when you plug the reader into the computer USB port. The software utility will allow you to easily ready deleted and old texts as well as contacts name and numbers.

As you can tell remote reading of a cell phones deleted texts is impossible by means of a SIM card reader.

Text Messages Saving and Storing Utility

To prevent the problem of deleted texts in the future a viable and inexpensive option is a smart phone application for the purpose of storing and saving all sent and received text messages. This smart phone application is a small file you download to the phone using the cell phones built in web browser. This application runs totally unobtrusively in the background of the cell phones processes. You won't even know it is there.

The way these applications work is they are a members area web site. The application installed on the cell phone silently relays all text messages (as well as calls and emails) to the members area web site. Any time you wish you can log in to your private members area and view all sent and received text messages even if they are deleted immediately after being sent or received.

Although this method does not actually retrieve deleted texts it is an effective preventative measure for the future. Use the SIM card reader to retrieve deleted texts and the text message saver to prevent the deleted texts problem in the future.
