I needed to recover lost/deleted (accidentally) text messages on my Android phone, a Samsung Galaxy S5, and I followed your steps directly from this link;

It mostly worked, however, I see that at the near-end of the process, you say "Use the recover button to either put the content back on your device or to store it on your computer for safe-keeping". Only, I can't seem to figure out how to put it back onto my device, which is what I wanted.

I only see the 'Recover' button on the bottom left corner of the program screen (WonderShare Dr. Fone for Android) and no other option but to click that, but when I click that button, the only choice I see is to save it to my computer.

I would really like those texts back on my phone as if I never made the mistake in the first place. Is there any way you can help me by telling me how to do that?

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I actually created this account just to be able to ask you this because it's important to me. I hope to hear back from you soon.

Have a great day.

Hi, Jaffer
Technologically speaking, there is no way to retrieve android text messages to your device by using these kinds of tools.

I guess the guy up there already gave you the multiple choices, all of them worth a try. but I think Jihosoft is the one has most beautiful interface and the function they don't have. I have used like 4 different kinds of tool, none of them can detect my Motorola out, I am about to give up but when I tried the fifth tool, Jihosoft surprisingly detect my phone out. It almost got me cry.

really hope can help you.

SMS Recovery seems good.
When you have installed it, enable USB debugging. Go to "Settings," then look in "Applications" or "Developer Tools."
Find "USB Debugging." Click on it to enable the feature.
Plug your Android phone into the USB cord. Connect the cord to your computer.
Open the SMS Recovery.
Click the "Start" or "Scan" buttons.
Look in the "Messages" section for your deleted texts.
Click on the deleted text, if you find it. Click the option to recover the file on your phone. Wait for the recovery process to complete.
