How to Recover Deleted Text Messages in Windows Mobile 6

By Nicholas Smith

Windows Mobile 6 is Microsoft's mobile operating system. Among the many features on phones with this operating system, owners can send and receive text messages to other mobile device holders. When you press "Delete" on a particular text message, they are not actually erased from the device, but transferred to the "Deleted Items" folder, similar to the "Recycle Bin" on desktop computers. You can recover those messages and store them in your Inbox.

Step 1

Browse to the text message you wish to save. On Windows Mobile 6 phones, access your test messages by clicking on the text message link or icon on your phone's home page. Depending on your phone, you may have to click a picture of an envelope, or click on a link that reads "Text Messages."

Step 2

Browse to your list of message folders by clicking "Menu" and selecting "Folders."

Step 3

Click on "Deleted Items." Locate the text message that you wish to recover and click "Menu," then "Move."

Step 4

Select the folder you wish to transfer the message to, such as the "Inbox." Press "Select." The text message will be sent to that box, and remain there until you delete it.
