    Hi, I really really need some help on something, from anyone who has any tech knowledge or knows how to do this. I just accidentally deleted an iMessage thread that was really important to me, I haven't deleted it in over 6months and it was so important to me. Does anyone know how I can get this back? I would really appreciate any help as I liked to look back and the images shared etc. To cheer me up and it just made me happy to scroll up and see old messages. Thank you so much

    If you have a backup anywhere, either on iTunes or iCloud then you can get it back

    Thank you- if i do this, will I lose things that haven't been backed up yet??

    Posted from TSR Mobile

    Yes, but here's something you could do
    You could make a backup now, then restore from an old backup. You could then screenshot the thread and email the screenshots to yourself, and then restore from the backup. This way you haven't lost anything and you at least have screenshots even if it isn't the actual thread itself
