I'm looking to recover old/deleted texts from an iPhone 4S. Here's the complicated part; I had to switch IPhones due to a battery problem. So, I have a new iPhone, same phone number. Did not have iCloud back up. Please help!
In this case, iPhone SMS could be recovered if it can be connected to computer and recognized by our program- iPhone Data Recovery. It supports iPhone 4S and all iOS versions.
Please follow the steps to download and restore your lost text messages.
Download and install Fonelab 8 to your computer. You can choose the Windows Version or Mac OS X version according to your operating system.
Step 1. Connect your iPhone 4S with computer via USB cable. When it is detected, click Start Scan and the scanning process will start.
Step 2: After scanning, all the files including your text messages will be listed in categories.
Step 3: You can find the target file in its own category.
Step 4: Choose the messages and click the Recover button. The checked files will be exported and saved in your computer.
Or else, if you have backed up your old iPhone with iTunes on your computer, you can choose to recover from iTunes backup file.
