    I did not realize that my phone had the default setting to delete text messages from a contact once 200 messages were received. I have turned that setting off but is there a way to view/recover the texts that were automatically deleted? I've read on numerous forums that you can click a contact then go to their history and the messages will pop up. I've tried that but the only thing under my contacts' histories are their call logs, nothing with texts. Thank you.

    Don't worry, generally speaking, the deleted contacts were still saved on your phone, you can use an app to detect them on computer, try Coolmuster Android SMS Recovery, it could detect your lost contacts and get them back.

    We're you waiting 2.5 years for this opportunity?

    Usually,the deleted data will be still saved in phone's memory becoming unseen before they are overwritten by new data. In such situation, you can use pro Samsung data recovery program to get them back.
