Are you using a SIM card in your phone?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes but I cant make or receive calls or texts, as my ex partner has block the phone .. as it was a contract phone.. I can still use the internet and other apps on there. but I still have the sim in the phone and an sd card aswell .

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Ok, it wont matter about the SIM card being enabled, just that the messages are on it.
To retrieve deleted SMS messages you will then need to buy this SIM USB reader so that your SMS messages can be read by a computer
http://www.dekart.com/products/hardware/sim_card_reader/
You put the SIM card into this reader and put it into a computer.
You will then use the dekart program Sim Manager
http://www.dekart.com/products/card_management/sim_manager/
It will retrieve deleted SMS messages on the SIM that have not yet been overwritten. They will then be available on your computer
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Correct but it is $29, not $39 you see this on the right.
It will work on your PC, but I cannot speak products sorry, only this one.
