    Default Deleted text message recovery.

    I accidentally deleted some pretty important text messages while messing around with my phone and not looking at it (I was talking and just rubbing my finger on the touchscreen without looking, ended up deleting important stuff).

    I don't sync with iTunes that often at all so it doesn't have a backup of the texts that I need, is there a way to recover the texts still? I'm under the impression that on devices like this "deleted" stuff doesn't get completely deleted, so is there a way to recover it? I've done a lot of searching and have only come up with an iTunes back-up solution, which doesn't provide me with what I need.

    Thanks!

    This is explained in iPhone Forensics basically get a copy of the SMS.db and type
    Code:
    strings SMS.db
    on any unix OS. This returns the text within this database including recently deleted text. That is the closest you will come to recovering this.
