I am desperately trying to figure out how to recover deleted text messages from my son's IPHONE 6s. I have done 4 different downloads that state you can recover deleted text messages. I'm able to see the messages but the one I am looking for will not pull up. It's just from last week. I really need this as it's for court purposes. He deleted it on accident. Isn't there someway to get it?? I'm not super electronically savvy but will take any advice.

Hi Grunzen123,

There wouldn't happen to be any iTunes or iCloud backups would there? See if the following helps in any way. Found here:

Run the application and select “Messages”and “Message Attachments” on the first interface. Then click on Next.
Connect your iPhone to PC and start to recover data from iPhone or iTunes backup. ...

You said that you could not get the text you want to pull up. Could be it may have been written over already though I am not quite sure how storage/memory works on iPhones. He didn't happen to send a copy/image of the text message to anyone did he? For court purposes, I had my daughter forward all texts to me and I created images of them for safe keeping and saved them to my PC.

Please stand by, other more informed members "might" have some valuable input as well.

If they are that important, I would take the iPhone to your local reputable tech shop and ask them to recover the texts for you. It won't be cheap but if that deleted text will make or break your case then the cost is not important.
