Creating a backup now is not going to retrieve a message that you deleted. You need to have made a backup in the past, when the message was on the phone. If you have an older backup when the message was on the phone, then you restore your phone to that backup. Restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch from a backup - Apple Support Use the appropriate section.


If you do not have a backup of the phone when the message was on the phone, then you cannot recover the message.
