Recovering deleted messages

I've accidentally deleted some important messages and I'd like to get them back

If you haven't backed up your phone to the cloud or a physical drive, then they are gone forever. AT&T, or any provider, doesn't store messages for security and privacy reasons.

If the deleted messages haven't been overwritten by new files, data recovery program could get them back. But this tool requires user to root the phone before recovery.
