How to Retrieve Deleted SMS From Nokia

You may have deleted a text message that you either hadn't read or needed to keep at one time or another. If you have, then you should know that a text message isn't really deleted until the memory slot it resides in is overwritten. Until then it is just turned off, so you can retrieve your deleted message if you have the correct tools.

Things You'll Need

  • SIM card reader
