An interesting thing happened to me a few days ago. I was browsing the web and studying our competitors and their offers - business as usual.
I bumped into several companies that promise to recover deleted SMS - just like one of Dekart's programs does (Dekart is my employer). Being one of the people behind the product, and having conducted all sorts of recovery experiments - I know that not any deleted SMS can be restored. There are many factors that influence your chance of success and I won't discuss them here (see this video if you're interested).
After reading the promo-materials written with a great deal of self-confidence, I asked myself whether they can do something our software cannot, so I wrote an email to several companies, asking if they could help me with my problem - an accidentally deleted SMS, which contained very very important information.
I would like to highlight one of the responses:
As I read it, I realize that it is very familiar; in fact - I am looking at my own text! Take a look at the original article that explains how SMS recovery works (it's OK, it has pictures :-).
I highlighted two spots in 'their' response, that's not something I would write. I checked that in my article - yep, my version was different:
- its own way - I wrote "each phone manufacturer has it their way"; I guess we went to different schools :-)
- see for yourself - my bad, I wrote "see yourself", which is incorrect. It is funny, because just a few days ago my sister pointed out this mistake in a description I wrote for a disk encryption program (see the last remark about a straightforward interface).
It would have been nice if they told me about "see for yourself", but alas, that's business as usual ;-)
p.s. SIM Manager is the best way to read the SIM card and recover deleted texts from it, have no doubts about it. Even the competition relies on our competence to get their act together, see for yourself :-)
