I followed many steps found online. None worked. I have the mddata files saved in CDC, txt, and xls, but am unable to successfully retrieve most of the texts that I need along with date, and time sent/received. This is for a custody hearing and I am very limited on funds.
Thank you for contacting us through the site. It's my pleasure to assist you.
I don't know if you would want to consider this but you could try using a software called Wondershare Data Recovery for iTunes. Let me know if this would work for you.
As a follow up to my previous response, you may still be able to restore the SMS messages if you've performed a backup of your iPhone on iTunes or iCloud. If you have, then you wouldn't need the software I've mentioned earlier. If you need guidance with restoring from a back up using iTunes or iCloud, please let me know so I can help you.
I hope this works.
