What's a good app for recovering data on my iPhone?

Episode 1474 (1:19:28)

Ricardo from Anaheim, CA
PhoneView on Mac

Ricardo would like to recover some data from his phone, including his messages. How can he do that? Leo says that there's a program called ECamm PhoneView is the best one he knows of. It's Mac only though. Free to try, then it costs $30. What about Doctor Phone? $100 is really pricey, and it has page after page of one-star reviews. So Leo would recommend steering clear of that one.

For the PC - the chatroom recommends iExplorer. Ricardo should also check out this list on AlternativeTo.
