Default Recovering Lost Data

Please Login to Remove!

My Blackberry Tour took a dump on me a few days ago. I wanted to retrieve some text messages and pictures that I had taken. My carrier is verizon and the phone has a sim card and internal sd card memory. I realized that everything had been saved to the sd card. I then attempted to retrieve all of this data from that card and so far have only been able to retrieve some pictures that hadn't been overwritten. How do I go about retrieving a few text messages that I wanted to keep? It seems that all of the programs out there that can retrieve data are only able to retrieve my pictures. I know these texts are on there I just dont know how to go about getting them back. Any help would be appreciated.

The SD card only stores media such as pictures, music, video, voice notes, etc. Text messages, email, apps, etc are stored on the internal memory of the device. Unless you backed your data up, you will not be able to retrieve the text messages.
