What Is Cell Phone Data Recovery?

Cell phones are used in everyday life for a constantly increasing variety of functions, and the need for data recovery on cell phones is growing.

In plain terms, cell phone data recovery is a professional service in which an engineer accesses lost data on a cell phone via a variety of means. It can be something as simple as quickly accessing a cell phone with a broken screen to remove SIM card information, or something as complex as the recovery of corrupted or deleted text messages, phone records, and even data files on newer phones.Cell Phone Data Recovery No two cell phone data recovery cases are exactly alike, and a flexible, educated approach is necessary for high recovery rates.

Because cell phones use a variety of operating systems and unique file systems, standard consumer level software is usually not a viable option. Many damaged cell phones can’t even be accessed by standard USB connections, and dedicated computers must be used to read flash data for recovery. It’s important to choose a data recovery provider with sufficient technology and experience. Forensic Cell Phone DR Engineering. is a leader in the field of forensic cell phone data recovery technology, and we have offered recovery services for all brands of cell phones since 1998.

New technology has made data recovery more difficult than ever, and it’s vital to have expertise in different cell phone programming languages, operating systems, and proven techniques that work on certain brands.

Our engineering teams have decades of experience with cell phone data recovery, and we annually invest tens of thousands of dollars to access new cell phone interfaces and develop new recovery methods. Supported cell phone manufacturers include Apple, HP, Motorola, Palm, Google, Sonim, Dell, Garmin, Samsung, Asus, Sony Ericcson, Alcatel, Sierra Wireless, SAGEM, Fujitsu, Kyocera Wireless, Mitsubishi Electric, NEC, Panasonic, Sanyo, Sharp, Phillips, BenQ, LG, and hundreds more.

Our engineers have performed data recovery from phones with thousands of different failure scenarios, such as::

  • Data corruption
  • Unintentional and intentional deletion
  • Crushed cell phones
  • Water and fire damaged cell phones
  • Accidental formatting
  • SIM card deletion
  • Computer viruses
  • Various bugs and glitches in cell phone operating systems
  • Hundreds of other failures
  • What Can Be Recovered From A Cell Phone? cell phone DR engineers are capable of recovering data from thousands of potential scenarios. If the data still exists on the cell phone, it can be recovered at one of our laboratories.

    Some of the more common types of data that we recover include::

    Deleted Text Messages - SMS messages that have been intentionally or accidentally deleted are still stored on a cell phone’s SIM card, or occasionally on the phone’s flash memory (depending on the phone model and user settings). Deleted data is not actually destroyed, it’s simply marked as available space. If a cell phone is treated early enough by a knowledgeable engineer who can work with the data at a bit level, it’s often possible to fully recover SMS messages from a cell phone.

    Pictures - Many cell phones have built in cameras, and when they crash or break, those pictures are completely inaccessible. Pictures can be quite large and complex, and data corruption can be a serious problem. Our engineers use new proprietary data recovery techniques to completely reconstruct each picture, providing our clients with a full, perfect copy of each digital image.

    Phone Call Information - Some clients need cell phone logs and information, and this is usually 100% recoverable, as phone logs are kept together in a small area on most cell phone operating systems. If phone call information is needed for any type of court case, please specify this when setting up a case so that proper logged forensic procedures can be used.

    Other Types of Stored Data - Modern smart phones are capable of holding gigabytes of information, everything from documents to video and music. All of this information is recoverable, even after formatting and even when the cell phone itself will not power on or recognize when plugged into a computer.

    If you need cell phone data recovery, you need an engineering team that can handle the challenges of modern phones and their data systems. can retrieve any missing or inaccessible information from any cell phone manufacturer, sometimes in a matter of days or even hours.
