How to Retrieve Deleted SMS on iPhone 5S/5C/5/4S

A few days ago, I was playing a fantastic game with my iPhone in the subway when I got a new message. I intended to quit the game and read the new message, however, the new message got deleted by an accident. I was so worried because I didn't know where the message came from. I searched online and got a flexible and humanized iPhone SMS Recovery tool. If you have ever deleted some important SMS and eager to get them back, you can give a shot of AnyMP4 iPhone SMS Recovery, with which I've got the deleted SMS back in a few steps. You can recover the deleted SMS in two ways: directly recover from iOS device and recover from iTunes backup files only if you have made the backup before.
