recover deleted SMS

In some cases we will need to to recover accidentally deleted SMS messages and contact numbers. However it is not very easy to recover deleted SMS and other data from phone SIM card. Here we will need data recovery software that can scan specific portion of SIM card to recover messages. The theory is that if we have enough space to store new SMS messages, the old deleted ones remain inside SIM card. So you may not be able to see those messages in mobile. But you can recover that from SIM directory using some software. Here we have two methods Recover deleted SMS from mobile SIM cards.

Restore deleted SMS from SIM using SIM manager software.

Dekart SIM manger is a shareware Windows application that be used to do everything related with mobile SIM cards. You can read from SIM, write, change PIN,  get contact numbers stored, last numbers dialed and SMS messages. Here we are using the SMS messages option for restoring  deleted ones.

Connect your SIM card using some card reader and launch SIM manager application.

Select SMS messages. Now you can see all those messages and phone numbers they came from.  SMS marked in red are deleted SMS.  Select the required message to be restored, right click > undelete.  That’s all, now you can read deleted SMS from your inbox.

Recover or restore deleted SMS from Symbian Nokia phone:

In this method we are using a free mobile application for Symbian phones,  called Fexplorer. It is usually used to explore the internal files and folders of a Symbian devices.

After download, explore to to your phone memory card (usually C) and select System and then mail .

Here you would see few folders like 00001001_S or similar ones.There should be some similar files inside these folders. These are actually the deleted SMS messages. Recovery software actually collects these messages.  Copy this file to a normal location accessible on mobile, transfer to desktop and open it using Notepad. This method is pretty much difficult. But it would be useful in needy situations.

We usually use the first method to restore deleted SMS and contacts from SIM card. The second method might be useful for people using old Nokia phones.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Please, I need you to do a favor for me. I will send you my complete set of mobile phone + new flash memory in order to retrieve/back up all deleted messages and receiving and dialing contact numbers. Then send it back to me. Please do this job for me, due to I am very poor in down loading and retrieving this new technology.

    If you are unable to do this job, please advise me who can do it for me.

    Your kindly assistance and support is very highly appreciated.

    Thanking you.
