When you store a lot text messages on your Samsung Galaxy S4, you sometimes need to delete less important messages in order to make room for new messages. But sometimes you may delete some important messages by accident.
Don’t worry, you can still recover deleted messages from Samsung Galaxy S4 with a third-party Samsung Data Recovery. There amany data recovery programs online. And as far as I know Wondershare Dr. Fone for Android is the most suitable one.
Wondershare Dr .Fone for Android is a powerful Android data recovery which recover deleted text messages as well as videos, photos, contacts, audio, document and Whatsapp chat history from Samsung Galaxy S4/S3/S5, Samsung Galaxy Note 3/2/1 and other Android devices.
Step by step to recover deleted text messages from Samsung Galaxy S4
Step 1: Connect your Samsung Galaxy S4 to the computer
Download, install and run Dr. Fone for Android. You will see the main interface. And then connect your Samsung Galaxy S4 to the computer with a USB cable.
Step 2: Enable USB debugging before scanning your phone
If your Samsung device isn’t detected by the program, you need to enable USB debugging on your phone. Check what Android OS is your Samsung and then choose the right way to open USB debugging follow below steps:
1) For Android 2.3 or earlier: Enter “Settings” < Click “Applications” < Click“Development”< Check “USB debugging”
2) For Android 3.0 to 4.1: Enter “Settings” < Click “Developer options” < Check“USB debugging”
3) For Android 4.2 or newer: Enter “Settings” < Click “About Phone” < Tap“Build number”for several times until getting a note “You are under developer mode” < Back to “Settings” < Click“Developer options” < Check “USB debugging”
Note: If you still get this window and the USB debugging has been enabled, please try to disable it and reset it again.
Step 3. Scan your Samsung Galaxy S4 for deleted text messages
Once your Samsung Galaxy S4 is detected, the program will ask you to click the “Start” button to start analyzing your phone’s data.
Note: Before starting, make sure that your phone battery is more than 20% charged, so that you can get a smooth scan.
If your device is not rooted before, the program will directly scan it after the analysis.
Note: For the device that Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android doesn’t support currently, it may lead you to set USB Mass Storage on your device to scan photos, videos, music and documents, or to root your device by yourself (if there is no USB Mass Storage option). All rooted Android devices are supported well. You can choose to do it or not by yourself.
If you rooted your device before, you need to allow the program Superuser authorization on the screen of your device. Just click “Allow” when the message pops out on your device’s screen. Then back to your computer, and click “Start” on the program’s screen to scan your device.
Note: For some devices, they may ask you to click “Allow” more than one time on your device’s homescreen. It’s normal. Just do it if it askes. It doesn’t matter. Just click it until it doesn’t appear again or the program has begun its real scan.
Do not disconnect your device during the scan, or the scan will fail.
Step 4: Preview and recover deleted text messeages from Samsung Galaxy S4
The scan will take a while, After finishing the scanning process, a list of recoverable files that have been found from your Samung will be shown. In addition, there will be a preview window of files where you can preview the contacts, SMS, photos and videos from Samsung device. Mark those you want and click “Recover“. You can selectively save them on your computer.
