    @cad71 yea that's the same program. I'm not sure why you can't edit that file...

     

    @foreversteven and hebma66, neither of these are fixes for the problem at hand. Please fully read the message thread before posting useless information.

    Nice info. Or you can use a program called Backuptrans iPhone SMS Backup & Restore to extract, view or print the messages from iTunes.

    Check if you have iCloud or iTunes backups of your iPhone first. If the answer is yes, restore the iPhone with the backups. Actually, if you have never backed up your iPhone with iTunes or iCloud manually, there are still possibilities that iTunes or iCloud has backed up your iPhone automatically: Every time you sync the iPhone with iTunes, iTunes will back up your iPhone automatically; if your iCloud backup was enabled, every time your iPhone is connected with Wifi and a power source with screen-locked, iCloud will create a backup automatically. If you find the backups, but the backups are not up to date, and you don’t want to lose the data generated after the backups, you can extract the deleted messages from the backups with the help of the iPhone backup extractor.

     

    In addition, you can also retrieve deleted text messages from iPhone directly using an iPhone data recovery app even if you have no backups of your iPhone.

    Settings , iCloud , account, mail, advanced , deleted messages-remove. Remove after one day is the quickest way to get rid of these.

    Here's how I retrieve deleted text messages on iPhone through iCloud:

    1. Erase your iPhone by going to the Settings menu and selecting General. From there, choose Reset and Erase All Content and Settings.

    2. Select "Restore from iCloud Backup" option.

    3. Allow the content to download onto your iPhone. You might need to input your Apple ID and passwords a few times while your account are re-enabled. Check if the restore is complete by going to Settings and iCloud. From there, select Storage and Backup.

     

    Hi everyone, does anyone know if it's possible to spotlight search a deleted text message from a non contact? Thanks...

    Yes, the message may still be in the spotlight cache -- if you know some of the message text, go ahead and give it a try!

    Simply resetting an iPhone isn’t enough to prevent others from recovering using the data recovery tool known on the market. If you want to keep your iPhone data 100% safe from being recovered, you should write some new data on the old data, so the new data will take over the storage of old data, then recovery will be impossible. So it’s very important to completely erase an iPhone before you resell or give it to others.

    Generally speaking, the messages that you have deleted is stored in the database, which can be recovered if they haven't been overwritten by new generated data.

    FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery can help to scan these messages out and you can choose to recover them with one click.

    However, if you want to erase those messages completely from your iPhone, you can choose to erase your iPhone data.

    You can find your deleted messages in your phone without using anyother tool for help, follow the steps: Click messages icon on your iPhone, hen click "New message" icon, type the name of the contact that was deleted from your phone book in the "To" field. Most probably the contact info will pop even if it isn’t in your phone book.

    If the sms are not deleted forever, you can find it by yourself without using any other tool.

    If you can't find your sms by using this way, then you can using iTunes or iCloud to recover them, but it will cover the phone data with the old back, all the data you add before will be deleted, so the best way is using a tool to extact your backup and get back deleted message on iPhone.

    It's my experience, I hope it can help you.

    I follow the step, it can find some texts that I delete yesterday,  but some sms that I delete a month ago, they can't display, I use a tool to scan my phone and recover deleted messages on iPhone.

    Hey gped17, I had this issue with my computer and I just finally fixed it. What I did was I opened my finder on my computer and went to preferences, clicked advanced, and then turned on both "empty trash securely" and "show all file name extensions." After this I simply searched imessage in my finder, making sure to search the entire mac, which brought up every text I've sent with imessage. I simply highlighted them all and drug them to the trash to securely delete them. Now they no longer show up in my spotlight search.

     

    Having them be technically deleted and then showing up in the search is a pain in the ***. I read half of these and they just said turn it off in the spotlight, so I decided to fix it on my own.

     

    Best of luck to you. I have no idea how to do it with emails. And if the issue is with your phone, perhaps do this on the computer as I suggested, and then wipe your phone clean and re-sync. sometimes starting clean isn't too bad.

     

    Cheers.
