Erased messages - digital recovery?

My parents have this machine and had some sentimental messages from over the years, and they inadvertently erased all of the inbox. Is there something we can do? Is there a company that specializes in this kind of data recovery (digital, answering machines)? Thanks.

Wow, hate to tell you all this, but once a message is erased there is no way to get it back. These use flash memory and once erased it is gone forever.

Prior to my mom's death, she left me a happy birthday message. Somehow the message got erased. The machine hasn't been used since. Is there a way to retrieve the erased message?

Try this..

1. If you have accidentally erased a Voice Mail message, press
the * (star) key, then the ‘7’ key.
2. After listening to the previously retrieved and erased message,
you can manage it as described by the Voice Mail system,
or to save the message, press the ‘#’ key.

Otherwise what is the model of the phone etc..

All emails missing from inbox

Did you set up a your account on a new device? You may have inadvertently set it to erase once the device downloaded it. If you want to be able to read your email from various devices, eg. phone and computer, make sure that you leave messages on the server. Delete from server only when you are sure that you won't need it. Try to utilize only one device so that you are sure when you delete. Hope this helps.

Sorry, the digital memory can't be restored ones the power is cut or the messages are erased. Some high tech lab somewhere FBI/CIA maybe just maybe could do it but no noting we can do about it.

you can try a old trick of holding down the play button for 10 or more seconds.

I'm really sorry.
