If you’ve just realized you deleted an important text message or two from your LG G3 and you’re starting to panic, then slow down. It’s okay – we’ve got the solution for you.
The software you need to pick up is Wondershare’s Dr. Fone for Android. It is a comprehensive data recovery tool for Android systems, including your LG G3.
How does it work?
The software works by scanning your LG G3’s memory for all data. It uncovers both data that is still current on your phone as well as deleted data that has not been overwritten yet. The best chance you have at recovering your deleted text messages is when they’re only recently been deleted. If you deleted them a long time ago, they may already have been overwritten by new data – but it’s still worth having a look to find out and see.
Is it an app?
This is not an app. Dr. Fone for Android is a full software application that is downloaded to your computer. It has versions for Windows and Mac. You connect your LG G3 to your computer with a data cable and the software scans all the data on your phone from there.
What else can it recover?
Along with the text messages (that’s SMS still on the phone plus deleted text messages), Dr. Fone can also uncover all of your contacts, photos, videos, audio files, documents, as well as your WhatsApp messages and history. Of course, the company is always looking to add more to that list, more likely in later software upgrades.
Can I use it with my other phone?
The short answer is yes! If you have another Android phone (or even tablet!) that you’d like to recover deleted files from, most makes and models are supported. The list of supported manufacturers include Samsung, Huawei, Motorola, ZET, HTC, Sony, Google, Lenovo and Oplus. But even if your other phone is not in the list of supported devices, if you root an Android device, this program will work for you.
Moreover, if you have an iPhone, Wondershare also has a version of Dr. Fone specifically for iOS devices. Check out the original version of Dr. Fone to recover data from your iPhone or iPad.

Dr. Fone comes free. You can try first before you buy. The free version allows you to check out the data that Dr. Fone for Android recovers. This free trial ensures you’re happy with the product before you go ahead and make your purchase. Licensing costs depend on whether you’d like a ‘Personal Use License’ or a ‘License for Business’.
