How to Recover Deleted Messages on Android

You can make a backup copy of all your data, including SMS and contacts on Android devices. One of the easiest ways is to use cloud space in Google Drive. If you have already backed up with the help of Google Drive, you will be able to restore not only SMS but also your WhatsApp messages. After you have backed up your data, you should follow the steps below:

  1. Reset your Android device to factory settings.
  2. Sign in to your Google account.
  3. During device startup, when you are asked "Do you want to restore your Android backup?", you need to tap on "Restore from backup".
  4. Then complete the setup steps and check your SMS folder at the end.

Since you may face the risk of losing all phone data and even other phone settings by performing factory reset, we recommend that you use another mobile phone to recover deleted text messages.

In Android phones like Samsung you can recover text messages without backup on Google, which we will discuss further.
