My iPhone just freaked out when trying to send a picture message, and it turned off and deleted every single one of my texts from the past year. Is there any easy way to recover them? Help please!
Texting messages is pretty easy via iPhone. However, mistakenly deleting messages also happens sometime. If you have a recent iCloud/iTunes backup that was made before you deleted the texts, you can erase your device and restore it to that backup and the texts will be restored.
Is it also possible to retrieve messages from iPhone itself? The answer is yes! The saying that there is no way to recover contacts without iTunes or iCloud backup is absolutely wrong.
