With the continuous popularization of smart phones, mobile phones have become an indispensable article in people's daily life, and it has brought a lot of convenience to users. However, once the data in the mobile phone is deleted by mistake, it will bring great trouble to the user. Where is the text message on the mobile phone? There are two ways to store text messages now. Text messages can be stored on the SIM card, or in the phone's own internal memory. What is the difference between storing in these two places?
It is basically feasible to store in the SIM card. Each SIM card has a certain capacity for storing text messages and calls. The size of this capacity depends entirely on the capacity of the SIM card itself. The capacity of the phone book and text messages can be freely allocated. The advantage of storing text messages in the SIM card is that it is not easy to lose (except for dynamic allocation). After a text message, checking the text message on the phone will cause the phone to be less responsive.
The current mobile phone text messages are generally stored in the internal memory of the mobile phone, unlike the data in the SD memory card, which can be directly retrieved. Therefore, the recovery of mobile phone text messages is also different from the recovery of general file deletion, and it cannot be operated with commonly used data recovery software. However, its storage mechanism is similar. After the mobile phone text message is deleted, it still remains in the original storage location. As long as it is restored in time, it can be restored theoretically.
Nowadays, smart phones are becoming more and more powerful. Many smart phones have a "SMS Recycle Bin" function, where we can retrieve text messages that were accidentally deleted. If the text messages have been completely deleted, you can try the following methods to retrieve the text messages.
