Find Evidence on a Cell Phone

Find and Recover Text Messages, Phone Logs & More. Today’s smartphones can perform functions that were possible only with a computer just a few years ago. In fact, the tables have turned. Many applications are only supported on phones, with developers choosing to ignore cross-platform development for computers entirely, and this is understandable. While you may use your computer at work and at other intermittent times throughout the day, you don’t have constant access all the time as you do to the phone in your pocket, the constant companion.

Cell phones are used for everything from making calls and sending texts to transferring money and storing confidential documents. Cell phones store millions of data records in the form of emails, messages, pictures, location data, financial information, and thousands of others. Much of this data can be recovered even if it has been deleted.
