How to Get Deleted Virgin Mobile Messages

There is nothing more discouraging than losing your text messages. This could happen if you accidentally deleted the messages, if you broke your phone or if you had a software glitch. If your phone has a Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card, you will be able to retrieve messages with a SIM card reader. Just because you cannot find the deleted messages does not mean you lost them forever. A SIM card reader will help you retrieve the messages on your computer. You also have the option to back them up, if desired.
