Can I get copies of old deleted messages?

Hi, I'd like to know if it's possible to retrieve deleted text messages sent or received on my phone, from Vodafone?

 

Thankyou,

Sam

It is not possible to get a copy of a deleted text message. 

 

Text messages are not saved on the network.

Re: Can I get copies of old deleted messages?

Hi, I need copies of old text messages from last year, i understand the police are able to obtain messages from peoples phones up to 2 years, so wondering why the owner of the phone cant.

 

I need some important messages from between September and November last year for a court case and my iphone only goes back to November

Re: Can I get copies of old deleted messages?

Hi there

 

The text messages aren't stored by Vodafone's message centre unless the recipient's phone is switched off. Even then they are only store for a relatively short period of time, usually 72 hours or so.  Once that time has passed, the messages are deleted.  They are also deleted from the servers once they have been delivered, so I am not sure where you get the idea that the police can request this info - as far as I am aware the info doesn't actually exist other than the log of number 1 sent a text to number 2 at 13:08:42 on 23/10/2013
