How to Recover Deleted Data from Samsung Captivate

Is there anyway to access deleted files on Samsung Captivate?

As a matter of fact, there isn't, if you don't ask for external help. There's no "recycle bin" or "trash" place on your Samsung Captivate as on your computer. When you delete files like photos or videos from your phone, bad news is they're gone, and good news is that it is not permanently. Therefore, you still can recover deleted messages, contacts, photos and video from Samsung Captivate phones unless they're overwritten.

First things first: Stop using your phone to shoot new pictures or videos, text messages or make calls, when you find files lost, to prevent original data from being overwritten.
