Dear Tracy, My boyfriend has been hiding something from me lately. I don’t know what it is but I suspect he’s been cheating on me and the other day I checked out his iphone but noticed he has been deleting his text messages. I heard there are some things you can do to recover deleted text messages and I thought maybe you had some advice on how to do this for me.
My advice to you is to find a new boyfriend or a little self confidence. Clearly there are some trust issues in your relationship and if you can’t trust the person you are with, why are you with that person in the first place?
But that issue aside the only way I can think of to recover deleted text messages would be to restore the phone from an older backup, just remember to first backup the phone as it is now so that you can then do another restoration from the latest backup to put the phone back to where it was int he first place.
On the MAC you’ll find your iPhone backs (those you do locally not on your iCloud account) – /Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup – On the PC you’ll find your files in the /Libraries folder.
