Hou to recover deleted contacts or SMS from iPhone 4/4S/5 ?
If you often use your iPhone 4/4S/5 to send or receive messages, you may have the habit of clearing useless text messages regularly. Or the stupid iphone deleted all your contacts and text messages somehow. If you happened to come across this situation, you may be interested in the following contents.
Retrieval from the  backup files of iTunes
1.Configure iTunes so that it does not automatically sync with your iPhone when your phone is connected to your computer
2.Connect your iPhone to the computer.
3.Open iTunes
4.Right-click on your device and press ‘Restore from backup…
5.Choose the latest backup and proceed.

By the time the restore is done. But there are things you should note:

If you have not been backup before deleted? You should note something before you recover the files as below:

I am trying to recover old SMS messages
but do not know if it is possible because:

1) the iPhone has been reset and the function 'erase all contact and
settings' was performed;

2) after the reset, the phone was set up
as a new device and synced and backed up with iTunes;

3) previous backups were deleted from the
my PC (there arent any old files in my MobileSync folder nor do any old backups
show up in iTunes)

So my question is are these old SMS gone
forever or can they be retrieved by some means that I am not aware of at this

For iPhone 4/4S/5, you have two solutions to recover your contacts and SMS: connect your iPhone to your computer and use MyJad iTunes Backup Extractor to scan it directly or use MyJad iTunes Backup Extractor to scan iTunes backup for it. Just follow this guide to recover your iPhone SMS. If the SMS you want to retrieve have been found, you can recover them then.

1.Go to Apple Genius bar and see if they can help

2.Restore from your last backup and you should get all of your messages back (assuming you didn't back it up again since those messages disappeared)

3.Ask help from a third party software to recover deleted text messages from iPhone.
