Does anyone know if there is anyway of getting deleted text messages, especially for telecom network in NZ.

Would be appreciated.

This would require a police search warrant and i would be amazed if telecom kept the content of the sms over a few days.

When you say "deleted message" do you mean a message that you composed on your phone, and never sent? Or a message that you had sent to someone, but they deleted, and now you want it back?

If its not on your phone, or a phone you have access to, then you are not getting it back.
