Our modern day lives revolve around mobile phones so much that we sometimes forget how much we can rely on them which usually leads to forgetting to keep a backup of text messages.
We tend to forget how much important information we store on them right up until they've been deleted.
Our 100% free Lallpt SMS recovery tool is designed to make it as easy as possible to retrieve deleted text messages. It guides you through, step by step, to recover messages which were deleted (on purpose, by accident or by a software problem).
We cover as many types of phones as possible (the more popular ones such as iPhones, Android and BlackBerry) are the easiest but we track methods which can work with most phones. We're constantly testing and updating to improve our recovery rate as much as possible. We do strongly suggest that you turn off your phone or at least use it as little as possible until your recovery is complete.
The Lallpt SMS retrieval software is free to download and use and is supported by nearly any Windows system.
Retrieving deleted text messages is two parts luck and one part technique. We track the latest methods to restore messages which have gone missing and compile them into our SMS tool which we make freely available to our users. We try to focus on the main handset types to get the highest retrieval rate possible but we do also have generic techniques which can work on any phone.
No matter how good our techniques though, there are still limitations to restoring your messages. When a message is marked as deleted on your phone the information is actually still there. It isn't read because it's been marked as deleted but under the 'open' layer of shown data the message information can still be accessed.
Now to do this we can exploit problems with a phones firmware or SMS application. We can also use low level tools to access data which the phone won't normally show (such as the deleted message information). And from there we can restore the information onto the phone.
But this requires either an issue with the firmware, application or for the data to still be there. When a message is marked as deleted we're not supposed to be able to see it. That's kind of the point of deleting things so the phone manufacturers go out of their way to make sure they stay deleted.
There's nothing much you can do about a usable method existing for the firmware or app. Changing afterwards won't help so that bits down to luck. What you can do to improve the likely hood of the memory not being overwritten is to not use the phone until you've retrieved the data. The more you use the phone, the higher the chance of that area of memory is used.
So turn off your phone if possible, or at least use it as little as possible. Even then we can't guarantee to recovery every message but if it's possible our tool is the most likely to manage it. It's easy to follow and requires no technical ability. It will work just fine with any Windows computer (as long as you install the Microsoft .net framework 4 as well) and leads you step by step through picking your phone and going through each method.
We keep up to date with the latest methods (using the TextRar tracker) and remove the older ones which will no longer work. It's not an exact science but we think we make a good job of it and offer our tool freely. If there is a method of recovery we haven't included feel free to let us know.
