    Hi,
    New to Droid world. Love my Droid, but she sustained water damage and the texts that were on it HAVE to be gotten at as evidence in a court case!! The phone probably shorted as she got really hot, and now is a brick. ANy chance in the world this can be retrieved???
    Thanks so much!!

    Did you take your battery out and dry it out. Worse come to worse you can put your sdcard in another droid or sdcard reader to retrieve the data.

    Why not get the text messages from the cell provider?

    Correct! Has to go through the Verizon Legal Department though. Even if the police come into our corporate stores with a court order, we cannot give out any information or records of any kind.

    texts recovery

    Thanks for responding as I am soo needing these. Verizon tells me they are not stored anywhere except the phone , not even on the SD card, so if the phone dies, the texts are gone. Seems to me they should be able to fix the phone as the data would be locked in there, even if it was water damage from rain/sweat/whatever. anyone know how to get them to help retreive the texts? thnks !!

    To Droid Does!

    So if the texts can be provided upon court order...they are stored at verizon on a server somewhere and can be retrieved...yes..

    That is correct, they're stored on the phone's memory. If you were rooted, I'd recommend Titanium and SMS Backup/Restore.

    Okay, so you got your phone wet, then left the battery in and it got hot? It isnt powering on at all at this point? Be as specific as you can.

    Your best bet is to go to verizon with a court order. More then likely the phone is toast.
