How can I recover a deleted text message from my iPhone?

Episode 1300 (18:39)

Brandon from Redlands, CA

Brandon needs to recover text messages that he deleted from his iPhone 5S. Leo says that if he's deleted a text, there really isn't a way to recover it. However, his carrier will almost certainly have a copy of the message, if it used SMS (the green bubble), so he could try and ask them. He could also look in the Messages (iMessage is the blue bubble) app on his desktop. If he has text messages still on his phone and he wants to get them off, then eCamm has a utility to download them. Another option is the iCloud backup. It could be backed up there as well. He should log into his iCloud account and see if it's there.
