How to Retrieve a Deleted Text Message From a Samsung Cell Phone

by Palmer Owyoung

Samsung cell phones are popular for their sleek appearance, but aesthetics won't keep you from pressing the wrong button and deleting an important text message. If this has happened to you, then you can retrieve the deleted text message from your Samsung cell phone with a simple purchase.

1

Purchase a SIM card recovery kit, which are available at spy and gadget websites such as BrickHouseSecurity.com or directly from the manufacturer at Dekart.com

2

Install the software on your computer by inserting the disk that comes with the kit into your computer and following the prompts.

3

Take out the SIM card on your phone. Remove the back of the casing and look for a white, rectangular piece of plastic that sits inside of a small metal holder. Lift up the holder and slide the card out.

4

Put the card into the USB card-reading device packaged in your kit.

5

Attach the USB cable to your computer.

6

Launch the software program, go to “File” and select “Download text messages”.

7

Undelete selected messages by right-clicking on the messages in red and choosing “Undelete”.
