How to Recover Deleted Messages from Galaxy Epic (4G Touch)

Is there a way to recover text messages from Galaxy Epic 4G Touch?

I'm using a Galaxy Epic 4G Touch. This morning I mistakenly deleted lots of messages when I try to back them up on my computer. The bad news is the backup also failed. So I don't have a backup and don't have them on my Epic now. Is it possible for me to recover them? Please advise me!

It's possible to recover deleted SMS from Galaxy Epic. Whether you can recover them successfully depends on the condition of your device. In other words, if you protect your Galaxy Epic well, you'll have a better chance of recovery, because the deleted data can be overwritten by new data. If you write new data on the device after data loss, the lost data may be overwritten and become unrecoverable. Therefore, stopping using your Galaxy Epic after data loss will be the best way to protect it from being overwritten.

Anyway, you can use a recovery tool to have a try first. Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android is a nice option. It lets you recover messages, contacts, photos and videos from your Galaxy Epic. What's more, it supports lots of Samsung devices and other Android devices. Just have a try now.
