How to Recover Message Threads Deleted by iOS 6 Upgrade
Message Threads Missing, Need Help!
I updated my iPhone 3GS last night to iOS 6 and found that if I click on any old text messages it gets deleted completely. The worst thing about this is my message thread with girlfriend was disappeared, and I needed to know her last message. Can anyone help me with this issue? I would appreciate it very much.
Text message threads, especially those business threads or those threads with friends, are important parts of our daily life. Since iOS 6 update is available, many issues about data loss after the upgrading happened. This is really annoying.Talking about this message threads loss issue, I would say, as long as he has iTunes backup on his computer, he could still recover message thread lost after iOS 6 updating.
To resolve this issue, all you need is an iPhone data recovery tool which could extract iTunes backup file from your computer. Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (Mac) or Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (Windows) is an effective tool to restore message thread with ease. Besides, the latest version of Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS already supports data recovery directly from iPhone 4S and iPhone 5.
Download the trial version of Wondershare iPhone data recovery tool below and start to recover message threads from iPhone.
Two Simple Steps to Recover Message Threads from iOS 6 Device
Step 1. Scan and Extract iTunes Backup
After installation, launch the program, and you will have an interface as imabe below. iTunes backup files of devices that have synced with your computer will be displayed, if you have only synced your iPhone with iTunes, there would be only one backup file displayed. Choose your device’s backup and click “Start Scan”

An interface as below will be displayed in a moment. Files extracted from iTunes backup will be displayed in categories, check “Messages” to preview the message threads you want to recover.
Choose message threads you want to recover then click “Recover” to save them on computer to read. That’s all.
1 Since this tool recovers data by extracting iTunes backup file, we suggest that you do not sync your device with iTunes before you find data lost after updating to iOS 6, otherwise your previous iTunes backup will be covered and you will not be able to recover old message threads.
