Is there a way to view or retrieve deleted text messages on a Galaxy S4


AC Question

I need to find an old text with a friend's alternate contact information.

Google and Samsung accounts don't save SMS. If you made several backups with Samsung Kies on a pc, you could restore one temporarily.

SMS Backup + that I use, or SMS Backup and Restore, are invaluable going forward.

No chance you could find something in the call history?
