Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
· Try and restore your phone using the factorysoftware. Most modern cell phones come with factory software that allows you torestore the phone to a previous backup point using the USB data connection onyour PC.

Some phones store a running log of text messageson the sim card for a certain amount of time. While the factory software won'tallow you to read this data, you can purchase third party software that willpermit you to access all of the information on the sim card in order to findout if your lost text messages have been backed up or stored there. · 3 Visit your carrier's retail storeand ask one of the employees to recover your text messages using a carrierspecific program.
