Need to recover deleted text message conversation on t-mobile android using verizon messages app

Hi all,

I accidentally deleted a message conversation on my Samsung Android today, and I can’t get it recovered using the conventional methods suggested on-line.  I’m trying to avoid resetting phone to factory defaults and restoring from my current active Google backup.  When I replaced the phone and phone number earlier this year, the current messaging app from Verizon remained the default and I didn’t think about the possible consequences regarding that.  Restoring from the Verizon app doesn’t work.  I changed app to Samsung but that still doesn’t work.  Any suggestions before I reload?

Have you tried connecting the phone to a pc and looking in the trash folder?

Also if you have an old phone try doing the restore on that phone to make sure the conversation is still there.

In most cases.  Once it’s gone, it’s gone!  You should back up your text messages regularly if they are important to you or use a text app that maintains a back up of your messages.
