Re: Recovering old deleted Texts?

Hello @Kyshae98,


We're happy to help! Based on the information you have provided, it appears that you deleted the text messages from your device only. If you completed a back-up after receiving the messages you are trying to recover, they should be available for review through your iCloud. 


Let us know if you have any further questions!

Re: Recovering old deleted Texts?

I am looking to recover messages deleted some time ago. I regularly back up in iCloud so I know they would t be in the latest backup. Is there a way AT&T can recover if I have dates and the phone number messages were from?  I’m trying to get a restraining order on an abusive ex and would like these as proof.
