My cousin Daniel has once damaged his SIM card which caused a great loss of data, making him suffer a great deal, because he has stored plenty of conversations with his girlfriend and some important business information within the messages. He was terribly worried that the precious conversations would forever be gone, and he would lose his business with some clients. How he wished he had backed the text messages up or had them stored in other places. Is it any way to find these messages back on his Samsung Phones?
