    I accidentally deleted a iMessage conversation. I don't want to use backup because this will go back for all text messages. I only want one particular conversation restored. My last back up was when I got my 7+ about a month ago. I didn't have iCloud backup on. I saw something online called iPhone rescue. It's a software that claims to be able to retrieve text messages. I called Apple and they said they don't have a way to do it.

    What about Enigma Recovery software? Or Dr. Fone?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks

    I just used Dr. Fone today with no luck at my issue, but it will recover your deleted conversation. You can either ONLY want to recover the conversation, and not be able to do so, or you can let it run for however long it takes, save your conversation and call it a day.

    Forgive me, but I am a bit confused by your description. Are you saying the Dr. Fone software will recover the deleted iMessage texts from a specific person and/or recover all info?

    It says it will recover deleted texts and attachments.

    I let it run a scan and although it did retrieve what was already on my phone, there weren't any deleted texts that I saw. Not sure if I have to purchase the software to get that result, but everything it captured, wasn't anything I didn't already have.

    For me, it brought back things I've deleted. Perhaps it is because of the trial. If you link me a dropbox account, I can give you the full version.

    Thanks for the offer....I tried Enigma and Dr. Fone. Neither recovered deleted texts. I was about to go to bed and saw an article about Phone rescue, so I tried that, fell asleep on the couch while it did the scan and woke up around 3am to see a majority of deleted iMessage texts were indeed there. It captured up until 12/6 IIRC. At this point I am just happy to see some of them were there, so I went to bed. When I get home tonight I will sit with it and see how I can recover or save the information. It wasn't a complete success, but better then nothing.

    Would you mind chopping a video and seeing if that will recover the chopped portion? Fone Dr. wouldn't do that for me.

    Glad you had success.
