I deleted an entire SMS thread by mistake from my HTC Wildfire. Is there any way I can retrieve that thread ?
If you use My Backup Pro and have regularly scheduled backups, you can retrieve your SMS messages, provided you've set them to be backed up.
Also see SMS Backup - it allows a user to backup the SMS directly into GMail, so you always have a backup away from your device - no harm even if your device is misplaced / stolen / not working and you need to refer to an SMS in a hurry.
Unless the messaging app you are using has a specific backup function or a trash folder there's no easy way, however, it may be possible for a data recovery professional (its not cheap) to recover them if the area in the memory hasnt been over written yet. Flash memory does not have data reminance like a magnetic drive. One overwrite and the data is essentially gone. I have also read that some android phone store sms messages on the sim card (I have a cdma phone so I have never seen it) and if so you may be able to recover them from the sim with a sim reader. Ultimately its not likely you are going to recover them and any attempts will be costly or hard.
There is no way to recover them using the default Messaging application.
I don't know any application which would be able to recover already deleted messages. I mean this technically this is not possible.
However there are messaging replacement applications with backup functionality.
