    "Hi. i recently deleted some imessages that iv`e never backed up. is it possible to recover? I have an iphone 4. I need to recover some messages, numbers and pictures if possible." - asked by SimoneVPyne

    Yes, using a third-party iPhone iMessage recovery tool, you can do it. Regarding the software, my recommendation is: Wondershare iPhone Data Recovery or iPhone Data Recovery for Mac. Both of them enable you to extract iTunes backup file, to preview and recover deleted iMessage from iTunes backup selectively. Furthermore, Both Mac and Windows versions allow you to directly scan iPhone 5/4s/4/3GS to recover iMessages, which is great.

    Download the trial version below and then you can install it on your pc.

      

    Next, let's recover deleted iMessage from iPhone with Wondershare Dr.Fone (Mac) in steps.

    There are two ways for you to recover iMessages from iPhone. One is extracting your iTunes backup file, and the other is directly scanning your iPhone, Now let's introduce the two ways.

    Part 1: Recover iPhone iMessages from iTunes Backup Files
    Step 1. Extact iTunes backup file

    All backup files of your device type will be shown automatically. Choose the one for your iPhone (choose the one with newest backup date if there are more than one), and click on "Start Scan" to begin extracting it for your iMessage.
