Sorry, the phone number might be overwritten, so this program can't retrieve it

I have been trying to retrieve a deleted number from the my iPhone 4S. I used the wondershare program. At the end of the scan, it shows the deleted messages but not the phone number of corresponding messages (says unknown). Is there a way to retrieve the phone number, or is it just gone?

Hi, Tommy, I'm sorry to tell you that there is no way to reverse that. You should recover them right away after you find that you've deleted them unexpectedly. Or other data will rewritten the data.
Tommy
Some of my notes showed up containing weird symbols and were overwritten due to not recovering them right away. Is there any way in reversing that?
Selena
When you use your iPhone after deleting those messages, you'll create new data, and the new data can damage your deleted data. So the best way to protect your lost data is stopping using it for anything and find a way to retrieve them as quickly as you can.

How would the messages get damaged? I tried restoring them a few hours after they were deleted so they weren't old or anything. And I've tested it on a couple of different occasions to see if it would fix itself. Any suggestions?
Selena
I'm afraid that the messages may have been damaged after you deleted them, and Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS can't repair them, but only find and recover what on your device.
Selena
Just wait for a few days. The next version of Wondershare MobileGo for iOS will do it for you.
