Hi Sue, This might be tricky... What device/OS are you using? Can you ask the person who initially sent the message to resend this to you? Cheers, Peter

It's impossible now. The ONLY way to retrieve details of a message that has already been deleted is through a court order.

Test message content is not saved unless there is a prior court order. This would be against every intent our our privacy laws. The record of the event is maintained with the text of the message stripped out.

Interesting read; [i]"...Unlike many other wireless carriers, Telus stores copies of all text messages sent or received by its subscribers in a database for 30 days". See the rest of the article (link below). http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/03/27/canada-supreme-court-text-messages_n_2961046.html

Hey there Sue. For Android I might consider this : http://www.androidpit.com/how-to-recover-deleted-text-messages Never tried it myself, but you could try and see if it works If it's on iOS and the message was received before your last computer backup, you can connect your phone to iTunes and do a restore from backup. Voila, your text wil re-appear in your text messages If the text was received after the backup, you could try this, though, as I said for the Android, I've never tried anything I'll suggest. Google suggested this http://www.iphone-data-recovery.com/recover-sms-from-iphone.html http://www.wikihow.com/Retrieve-Deleted-Text-Messages-from-an-iPhone Found this too : https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2594591?start=0&tstart=0

Sorry I can't offer a recovery method but only a bit of advice that is useful to everyone with important MMS, pictures, documents, music etc. on their devices.

Back it up or save a copy somewhere other than on the device because in many cases "Once it's gone, it's gone!" or "You don't know what you got until it's gone".

iPhone Messages Recovery as known as iOS Data Recovery, is a nearly almighty data recovery program, which enables you to recover deleted contacts, text messages, photos, notes, voice memos, Safari Bookmarks and more from iPhone.
