Step 3: Start Scanning

Follow the guide on the program to grant Dr.Fone access to the phone memory. It's easier if you follow the programs instructions but basically: Hold the power and home buttons on your iphone for 10 seconds and then release the power button while still holding the home button. Then click scan on Dr.Fone.

Leave the scan to run. It shouldn't take long but the longer you give it the better the chance it'll find your deleted text message.

Step 5: Restore Deleted Texts

On the left hand side you can select the type of data you're looking for. Contacts and messages etc... Text messages are shown as the fourth one down.
