Did you do backup recently? if so you can restore and all your texts will be restored prior to the backup.

You can find the text database file using ifile and you may find your texts in a txt format but often its fragmented with chucks missing. Theres a thread on here showing you what to do, i read it ages ago.

Want to know if you can jailbreak your iDevice? click here ==> Jailbreak Chart - Jailbreak Matrix

Recover from the iPhone DataBase
If you have not been backup before deleted? No worries, the deleted files still can recover.
You should note something before you recover the files as below:
Some vital data likes Contacts, SMS, Notes, Call histories and more are stored in the dataBase. When you delete these files accidentally, those deleted feels are still stored in the dataBase. So you can recover those deleted files from iPhone database.

it is really sorry to hear about that you have deleted you precious text messages by accident, it has happened to me recently, and i found a good solution, here i will introduce it to you , hope this kind of SMS Recovery software can help you indeed. with the help of the iPhone SMS Recovery software, which is a tool for iPhone users to retrieve the deleted messages, you can get them back in few steps. There are two popular and useful ways to make it. One way is that you can recover the messages from iPhone directly. The other way is that you can restore messages from iTunes backup, only if you have made the backup.

Recover your deleted SMS messages

Do you have the backup of your iPhone? Even you don't have the backup, it's ok!
Surely, you can get your lost messages back, even they are eliminated totally, with the help of iPhone SMS Recovery, you can recover the deleted SMS instantly. It will scan your iPhone directly to restore your lost SMS messages.iPhone Data Recovery is specially designed for iOS devices users to recover deleted or lost data like photos, contacts, SMS, videos, audio, calendar, call history, etc. Just have a try!

Goto VAR/mobile/library/SMS

Rename these 2 files:

SMS.DB-SHM
&
SMS.DB-WAL

(just add a 1 on the end)

Then reboot.

It should reconstruct you SMS database, hopefully the deleted ones will come back.

If you have already backed up your iPhone with iTunes, you can recover deleted text messages from iPhone by the following steps using iTunes:
Click the File menu and select Devices > Restore from Back up.
Or
Open the iOS device's Summary tab. There are two ways to access this:
Click the device button in the upper right corner. (If viewing the iTunes Store, click the Library button in the upper right corner. The device button will then be visible.)
From any view in iTunes, click the View menu and select Show Sidebar. Select your iOS device in iTunes under Devices.
Click the Restore Backup button.

If no backup, I think you can use some iPhone Data Recovery tool for help.

Hope this can help you!

It is a bit difficult to recover deleted text messages from iPhone, so If the SMS is really important for you, I advise you not try the tips found on net, after all, any tips exist risks. If I were you, I would seek some iPhone Data Recovery or turn to help for Apple consumer service.

1.Go to Apple Genius bar and see if they can help

2.Restore from your last backup and you should get all of your messages back (assuming you didn't back it up again since those messages disappeared)

3.Ask help from a third party RecoveryAndroid software to recover deleted text messages from iPhone.

When deleted messages, deleted from android, the iPhone removes the pointer to the files from the file allocation table and flags the deleted files as no longer needed. in order to recover deleted messages on iPhone, you need to avoid writing data to the card or internal storage, plug in your device and set the usb setting as mass storage so that both the sd card and built-in storage should be recognized and mounted as removable drive, scan the drive, then recover deleted contacts from iPhone.


You can also export your messages from iPhone to computer for backup. it is really very important. try to transfer iPhone messages to pc.
