    Was the last updated to the cloud before you erased your messages? If so your SMS should be stored in there.

    Did you backup your data? If so, you can try Vibosoft iTunes backup extractor to recover your lost data from your iTunes backup. http://www.vibosoft.com/itunes-data-...y-windows.html

    Hello, thank you for recommending a app, but I found it is not the same app according to its guide:
    Recover Deleted Text Message from iPhone 4/4s/5 or iTunes Backup
    retrieve lost SMS from iPhone

    it is really sorry to hear about that you have deleted you precious text messages by accident, it has happened to me recently, and i found a good solution, here i will introduce it to you , hope this kind of SMS Recovery software can help you indeed. with the help of the iPhone SMS Recovery software, which is a tool for iPhone users to retrieve the deleted messages, you can get them back in few steps. There are two popular and useful ways to make it. One way is that you can recover the messages from iPhone directly. The other way is that you can restore messages from iTunes backup, only if you have made the backup.

    To recover messages from backup back to your iphone, try a program called Backuptrans.

    As a matter of fact, there are two ways for you to recover your deleted data from iPhone.
    1.You need a third-party tool to directly scan and recover data from your iPhone.
    2.If you've synced your iPhone with iTunes, you also can regain your deleted data by extracting your iTunes backup file.
    You can follow this tutorial to recover iPhone 5 data easily:how to recover iPhone 4S data.
    I Suggest you backup your data on iTunes or iCloud so that you can recover data you wanted next time.

    If you sync your iPhone with iTunes every once in a while, there’s a strong chance that the last backup that iTunes took of your iPhone has those special messages that you want back. In case you regularly backup your iPhone with iTunes, you probably retrieve deleted text messages on iPhone. However, if you have no backup of the messages, you can also recover them with the help of Tenorshare iPhone data recovery. You can have a try!

    You can try Myjad iTunes Backup Extractor, it is a powerful software specially designed for iTunes backup file recovery which enables you to extract and recover lost or deleted photos, videos, contacts, SMS/MMS, call records, voicememos, calendars, notes and Safari bookmarks.

    I have tried to recover photos from my iPhone5 before. It worked really great!
    You can have a shot!

    Good luck dude!
