How to Recover Deleted Messages from Samsung Galaxy S4
Want to recover deleted text messages on my Galaxy S4
I just got a new Galaxy S4, but when I deleted some text messages on it, I mistakenly deleted some important ones that I never wanted to lose. The bad news is that I don't have a backup. So, is there any way for me to recover deleted messages from Galaxy S4 without backup? I will be much appreciated for your help.

Next, let's do retrieve lost messages from your Samsung Galaxy S4 together.
Step 1. Enable USB debugging your Galaxy S4

If you've ever rooted your Galaxy S4 before, you'll see the program's window becomes like below before it scans your device. At that time, you need to turn around to your phone and click Allow on the home screen to let the program popping up on it go. Then back to your computer and click the Start button to continue scanning your device.
What the program performs is a deep scan, which will take you a quite long time, but offer you a more intact recovery report. You can preview all recoverable contacts before you save them on your computer, as shown on the window below.
You can selectively tick off whatever you want and recover them to your computer. The recovered data is composed of deleted messages and existing messages.
