I have a habit of reading old messages that were sent by friend. But yesterday, I accidentally deleted important on Galaxy S4. When I was reading those text messages on my Samsung Galaxy S4 just like before, I pressed the "Delete" and some other buttons by mistake. Then I found that all SMS messages were deleted and I can find them any more. Now I'm so regretful for what I have done, but I have no idea how to restore Samsung S4 lost SMS directly. Can you help me? Thanks a lot!
