How to Recover Deleted (SMS) Text Messages from LG Handset?

My friend Andrew is one of the LG users, and whenever I see him, he's holding his phone sending text messages to his girlfriend. Although they're in a long distance relationship, they stick to each other like glue by texting. Last month he told me he was in trouble, for he deleted an extremely important message from his girlfriend by mistake, and was to blame for his carelessness. There may be times when you make such a mistake with your text messages as Andrew, and I guess you're upset as much. Or the text messages may be wrongly deleted by a friend who borrows your phone. Besides human factors, there can be various kinds of technical reasons as well. As all text messages are stored in corresponding databases, once there’s something wrong with the databases or are deleted, they will be lost. When there’s a problem with Android's flash memory, the same result will appear too. On the other hand, the Android system has instability, which may lead to messages missing.

You must be worried when your text messages, especially those carrying important information, are deleted, but you have no any backup. At this time, you must want to retrieve them. Yes, they can be recovered and you can have them back, because they aren’t completely deleted. In fact just the boot area is closed, so you can't have access to reading the messages. They themselves still exist in the SIM card or the phone memory. Only when new messages come, they’ll be covered. Thus if you lose your messages, seek for solution as soon as possible instead of sending new ones out.

When stuck in such a situation, you'll need Coolmuster Android SMS Recovery (for Windows 8/7/XP/Vista) or Coolmuster Android SMS Recovery for Mac (OS X 10.9 or later), which can surely help you recover the deleted text messages from your LG phone quickly and safely.

Several Steps to Retrieve Text Messages Deleted from LG Mobile Phones

Step 1. Connect your LG mobile to computer

To begin with, you should get your LG handset linked with the computer via a USB cable. Once the connection is successful, you can launch the installed SMS recovery software for LG and it will automatically detect your plug-in device.

Tips: All LG phones can be supported by this software, including LG Optimus, LG G2, LG Viper, LG Ally, etc. And not only LG mobiles, the software also works on other Android devices, including Motorola, HTC, Samsung, ZTE and so on.

Step 2. Enable USB Debugging Mode on your LG phone

In the second step, we need to enable USB debugging on the connected phone. The activated USB debugging is used for synchronizing data between your device and computer. If you have already opened the USB debugging, you can move to the next step. If not, you need to follow the steps below to enable USB debugging mode on your Android phone.

For Android 2.3 or older, Go: "Settings" < Click "Applications" < Click "Development" < Check "USB debugging".
For Android 3.0 to 4.1: Enter "Settings" < Click "Developer options" < Check "USB debugging".
For Android 4.2 or newer: Enter "Settings" < Click "About Phone" < Tap "Build number" for several times until getting a note "You are under developer mode" < Back to "Settings" < Click "Developer options" < Check "USB debugging"

Step 3. Scan for the lost SMS messages on your phone

Once the USB debugging mode has been enabled successfully on your phone, the launched program will automatically detect your phone and show its parameter information on the main interface. You can click the "Start Scan" button to let the software scan your LG phone deeply. After a short waiting time when the scan finishes, all the contained files in your phone will be displayed in clear categories, including your lost messages.

Step 4. Preview and recover the target contacts

Navigate to the "Messages" folder, click to open it and preview the contained text message conversations one by one, including the lost ones. Check those you need to recover and click on the "Recover" button to bring out the path choosing dialog. Just specify an output location from your computer or external storage device for saving the recovered LG text messages and then the recovery process will begin immediately.

After a few while, the SMS recovery will be finished successfully. Then, you can turn to the output location to check the recovered text messages. They are saved in .txt format and you can choose to save them on your computer as a backup or you can use Coolmuster Android Assistant to sync them to your LG phone again.
