    I hope this is the right place with in this forum to ask this question and I hope that someone may have an answer. I am needing to file a small claims suit against someone. I am needing to recover text messages from a damaged phone to be able to present as evidence. The phone is a Motorala Razr Maxx HD. The screen is broken and the battery has been disconnected. I am hoping for maybe some program that will allow my to plug it into my computer and pull my old text messages off of it or any other ideas on how to retrieve the files.

    Thank you.

    What I gather from that is I could have installed that on my old phone and let my computer keep a record? Would be nice but I did not have it. The phone hasn't been turned on or active for maybe 6 to 8 months now. So it is a little late. A light still comes on if I plug it up so there is some life but no battery to keep a charge. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    The shop way is to connect a temporary screen to the phone and recover the messages. If the suit is important enough, you may have to have a shop do that.

    Probably not, but reflashing (NOT REFORMATTING) it may leave some of the files accessible by a deleted file reclaimer app.

    I have downloaded a few of these data recovery programs but they all need my phone to have USB Debugging on. My screen is broken therefore I cannot turn it on. Is there a way to do this with a broken screen and USB Debugging off?
