    On most phones (possibly all) you are out of luck. The operating systems do not provide low-level access to the bits and bytes written in the memory.

    If that data was on a memory card, you could try to find if there is any tools to recover the data using PC while the memory card is attached to a reader.

    Re: Can i recover the Deleted number from phone memory

    If I am right that through AT-Command we can access all Phone book as well as sms. no any command exist that can give all the number that may be deleted or not deleted.

    One another question arise what happen when we delete any number?
    as we know when we delete any data from Hard Disk ,the data not delete from data only one flag atteched before data that indicate that data has been deleted.


    Similarly we can also recover the number from SIM CARD memory ustng Commands.If it possible in SIM CARD then sould be possible in mobile memory.


    Thanks

    There is no AT commands to recover or get back deleted data.

    On a hard disk, what happens when a file is deleted, varies depending on the file system and file/database structure. On the FAT file system, if you delete an entire file, its directory entry is marked as deleted, but the file data remains, until someone writes over the blocks.

    A SIM card or the phone internal memory is not based on FAT & in any case file system level operations are not the same as data (a record) inside some file structure.

    Re: Can i recover the Deleted number from phone memory

    ya You are right that no fat entries in simcard or internal phone memory.But in sim card the number and sms store by some algo. But by using command we can recover the Number and SMS.I also recover all deleted SMS from simcard by using Ponix type SimCard reader.A lot of s/w also in Internet that restore deleted number from simcard.



    Ya i am sure there is not FAT type in SimCard But Data store in hax form and we can retrive deleted number as well as SMS using APDU commands.


    Similarly it may be happen in case of phone memory.


    Thanks.
