How to retrieve deleted text messages

You can retrieve deleted text messages from any phone that has a SIM card. It’s pretty easy to do. There is a $99 device that you can learn more about at my website at that will allow you to take the SIM card out of the phone, plug it into the device and put the device into that computer. Once you have it plugged in, you will see every deleted text message that child ever sent from that phone. If you child is using a phone that does not have a SIM card, please, contact your cell phone provider and ask them about parental controls. They will be able to show you what text messages are being sent as it happens.
