Once you delete a message, it's gone. I've never been able to hook my phone up to a pc and read the messages.

The data is only available for a short period of time. It will be overwritten and lost for good.

You can use recovery software via PC to pull deleted/lost data. Including text messages.

Videos will save to the userdata partition - some data won't, so videos won't overwrite it.

Reflash the stock ROM after doing a complete (including system) wipe. The only thing left undeleted will be the download and recovery partitions - where you don't have anything stored.

If it's a Google contact, it's at Google Contacts, and you can recover any contact deleted within the last 30 days (hit the More button). If not, you're out of luck, unless you have Contacts set to only display a particular group - then set it to display all.

Why not just encrypt the phone? I would think that would prevent access from unauthorized users like other data.
