    I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm trying to recover deleted texts and photos from my prepaid Samsung Galaxy SM-J337A. I've searched endlessly for software that can retrieve them. It's unrooted and as far as I can tell it's not possible to unroot without unlocking bootloader but I've read that will wipe everything which I don't want. Is there any software or process I can do to retrieve these deleted texts and photos? Thanks!

    Welcome to Android Central.

    First, if the messages were deleted, unless you actively backed them up you've already lost. There is no way to recover deleted SMS messages. If you have a legal case in court you could petition the carrier for copies of any conversations related to that case. This usually requires all the contact information for the conversations affected as well as a date range and the messages are printed and returned. Otherwise restoring messages, as they appeared in your conversations thread, is not possible.

    You are correct it is not possible to root a device without wiping its memory.
