    "Hi. i recently deleted some imessages that iv`e never backed up. is it possible to recover? I have an iphone 4. I need to recover some messages, numbers and pictures if possible." - asked by SimoneVPyne

    Yes, using a third-party iPhone iMessage recovery tool, you can do it. Regarding the software, my recommendation is: iPhone Data Recovery or iPhone Data Recovery for Mac. Both of them enable you to recover iPhone iMessages through three ways. One is extracting your iTunes backup file, another is recovering from iCloud Backup, and the other is directly scanning your iPhone, Now let's introduce the three ways.

    Download the trial version below and then you can install it on your pc.

      

    Next, let's recover deleted iMessage from iPhone with Dr.Fone in steps. Download & Lauch Dr.Fone and, you will get the user interface below.
