I have read a lot about this online and would like to confirm once and for all.
Is it possible to retrieve SMS messages that have been deleted from my iPhone?
I know it is possible to get access to the sms.db file but that only holds the current SMS messages. I tried that and was successful in getting it off the phone but when checking the contents there were no deleted messages.
And this would not be relying on any backups either, i.e. I backed up my phone, sent a message and then deleted it without backing up before deleting. Is that SMS gone for good?
