There's lots of dodgy apps and programs for your PC out there, but apps that we've heard generally positive things about are:


These usually are free or come with a free trial. In general, the thing is that data may be ''lost'' but it is still recoverable until something else is written over the top of it. So there's a chance you can still recover data if you haven't been saving lots of stuff on your phone since you lost your messages.

Give it a shot and let us know if you had any success.

I have accidentally deleted all my SMS messages on my Galaxy S3, and luckily, I found another tool named Jihosoft Android Phone Recovery. It scanned my phone and really helped get back the lost messages.

Well, that was great Lily ! I haven't heard about Jihosoft Recovery but if it works out for you then its just amazing! Like @Loie has mentioned above there are also other recovery software stated above next time when you ran onto try Wondershre or Coolmuster it really offer different experience than others. ;)

I personally haven't used it, but it looks like a potential solution.

These softwares are not free, I download and install them, it ask you to purchase the key code and register it, then it allows you to use it for recovering sms from Galaxy s5 without complex operation.

Yes, I've encountered the same problem, maybe the program are not appropriate for all the Android model.

Hi Loie,

I was just wondering, when you say that I cannot add any new information as this will not permit any of these programs to work, does this include email as well? I re-started my friends phone for her, but she forgot to copy down a few contacts. She has already put in her email to receive emails through her phone, but she has not taken any new photos or added any new contacts. She has also received some texts already.

If I use one of these programs, and although the email is set up already, will it still work? And do I have to re-set the email on the phone again?

Hope to hear from you soon!

Thank you!

If you have previously preformed a backup, all messages were stored on your computer or other safe place like mail, cloud, etc. and can be added back to your Samsung galaxy phone.
