How to Recover iMessages from iPhone

iMessage has become more and more popular nowadays, for its unique advantages over other text messages like SMS or mms.

1. The text bubble of iMessage is blue, different from green bubble of SMS.

2. You can send an iMessage to one person or to many friends at once. When someone replies, everyone sees it.

3. iMessage tells you if a message is read or received, so you can get a quicker response.

4. When someone’s in the middle of a reply, iMessage shows you.

5. iMessage is free and unlimited over Wi-Fi for anyone texting using an iOS device or Mac with iMessage, While SMS and MMS are sent over an operator and priced based on per message sent.

Sometimes you may delete them unexpectedly while they are important; sometimes you may remove them deliberately but later you wish them back.
