Before Data Loss Happens

As an old saying goes, always prepare for a rainy day. If you'd backed up your valued content on Samsung in advance, you would not be troubled by such a headache, worrying how to restore the deleted messages. I don't want to nag, but it's strongly recommended to back up text messages on Samsung in case of data loss.

Also, there are a whole bunch of SMS backup apps available on Google Play. If you have done a backup for text messages via those apps, sure it's a cakewalk for you to perform Samsung text retrival and retrieve deleted text messages on android without computer. If not yet, you can look for a desirable app on Google Play on your own.

After Data Loss Happens

Though files can be retrieved once deleted by accident, there is still a chance that they might be gone forever. Space on internal memory that were once taken up by the deleted files may be occupied by the new-generated data. So the first thing you should do after losing data is to stop using the Samsung device until you recover the messages with Android SMS Recovery.
