5 Steps For Easy Text Recovery

The following tutorial has been provided to help you quickly regain text messages on any Galaxy Note 4 smartphone.

Step 1: Configure Text Message Recovery. When Dr.Fone has finished identifying your device, every available file type will automatically be selected for data retrieval. To begin, uncheck the check box for every item except Messages and then click on Next.


Step 2: Wait for Dr.Fone to Verify the Device. The utility will need to apply one-click root and perform other verification steps before a scan can be performed. Click Next to start this step and wait patiently for the verification process to complete.


Step 3: Scan for Recoverable Texts. The scan starts immediately after the verification process has finished. A progress bar is provided at the top of the utility to view estimated scanning time and current progress.


Click on Messages on the left side of the application to view the current scan results. The recovery option in the bottom right corner of the utility will be disabled until scanning has completed.


Step 4: Select Your Text Messages. After scanning, every available text will be marked for recovery as noted by the checkmark next to Messages. If every item should be restored, all you need to do is click on the Recover button.


If only one or a few texts need to be retrieved, click on Messages and choose the items you want to recover. The located messages will appear on the right side of the utility and can be previewed for making custom selections.


Click on a checkbox in the list to choose or remove an item for recovery. You may also click on the displayed message to see additional information.


By default, every text message available for recovery on the smartphone will be displayed in the scan results. If you only want to see only deleted messages, you must enable the “Only Display Deleted Items” slider. To do so, click on the slider at the top of the screen. It will have a blue background when enabled.


Step 5: Finish Message Retrieval. In the bottom right corner of the application you will see the Recover button. Click on this button after all recovery selections have been made to choose a save location and complete the message retrieval.
