    The best way to recover this application will be for you to either do two things on your device. 1. You could in fact go to your google play store and download a third party camera application on your device. The third party app may not e as good as the application that came standard on your device but will in fact work for you in order to take pictures. 2. You perform a hard reset on your device in order for you to gain all of your applications back on your phone including the camera application.

    it definitely isn't that easy. If you go to contacts and view history of any it only shows the call history, not texts. Especially if the threads have been deleted. I, among many others, want to retrieve old texts that are gone either because the storage text message limit has been exceeded, or they have been physically erased by me or other(s) who have went into those settings of my phone. I've called 611 and twice I've been told it cannot be done without a subpoena/ court order. I find it odd that things can be gone like they never happened so easily. Facebook lets you download a copy of everything, why can't phones?

    Hi - I just found this thread. How can I get the text history off of my phone and into, say, a Word or .txt document? I want to save a conversation that was very important.

    Do a search in Google, you will find out many options available, however, most are paid solutions.

    Go to the contact in your contact book press the menu button and then hit history and all your deleted messages and threads should be there..
    Does their number still have to be active? For people I have texted recently it comes up with text and call history but for this particular person (haven't spoken since end ofJanuary 2014) and some other people, it only comes up with incoming and outgoing calls?

    Tried this one note 4. When I go to the contact name and tap the message envelope symbol I just get a blank text to begin a text. No history.

    I can confirm that going to contacts and clicking on the message button next to name does restore all texts to that person. Or as in my case with a Galaxy Note 4 it is restoring all deleted text messages since I bought the phone...lol

    Currently at 1459 new text messages and it is crashing my phone but it is working. Just give it a few minutes to kick in and reload the history. Also I just kept scrolling down on the history screen refreshing the history.

    THANK YOU GOD!!!!!!

    If you deleted the contact recently, and it's a Google contact, you can go to Google Contacts and restore deleted contacts (up to 30 days ago).

    It is not difficult to recover deleted text messages from Android cell, if you are sure that you've saved these data on the inner memory card. Pick out this card and connect it to a computer or laptop. (Never try to save anything else on this memory card in case of data loss.) Download Android Data Recovery software to get back your deleted data. There are numerous card recovery tools online. Preview the recovered data to see whether it is restored rightly. Save the restored data on a different drive or places in case of data recovery failure. In the future, you should learn to back up your data well.

    I think you can try some third party software that claimed they can recover deleted text messages from Android. I am new to Android. I also wanted to know that, so I searched a lot. I found this best Android data recovery software review website. You can read it and have a try.

    If you do factory reset or your deleted messages are overwritten, then you can't.

    It's quite possible to recover deleted text messages android if you use a data recovery app to help immediately. By the way, you need to root your phone to restore lost sms and contacts
