If you delete a text message on an iPhone, that message will be deleted forever, unless you've recently made a backup of the iPhone to your computer. If you do, you can use the TextPad application to locate and recover the text message you deleted.

  1. Double-click the icon to open the program TextPad program. Click the "Search" menu and select "Find in Files".
  2. Write " most recent post " in the "Search" field . Type " * . * " In the " Archive " .
  3. Click the "Browse" button to the right of "In Folder " . Click the icon of the hard drive of your computer, followed by the link "user" . Click on your username, then select the "App Data" option . Click the " roaming " folder , then the " Apple Computer " folder. Click the " MobileSync " folder , then click the one that says "Backup " and then click the "OK" button to set the " Backup" folder as "In Folder " .
  4. Place a checkmark next to the "Search subfolders " . Click the "Search" button to find the appropriate files.
  5. Double-click the first item in the search results to open the SQLite file in TextPad . Scroll through the file until you find the text message deletion.
