Cell Phone Forensics

Cell phone forensics is one of our specialties. We keep up with the tools and technologies that enable us to collect and analyze data from cell phone Apple iPhones and iPads, Android smart phones and tablets.

Recover Deleted Text Messages and Other Data

This is the most common request we get.  Yes, we can recover deleted text messages or other data such as pictures.

If this is what you are looking for the very 1st thing you should do is STOP using the phone. Deleted data is marked to be purged from that phone.   The rule of thumb is — the more you use the phone the less that can be recovered.

Damaged Phones

It is not uncommon to receive a damaged phone and to see what data can be retrieved. In these cases it will depend on the level of destruction on the phone.  We’ve recovered data from phones that have been on the bottom of lakes, in fiery car accidents, and dropped from great heights.

Bypass Passwords, Passcode and Pattern Locks

On many models of cell phones we can bypass passwords. You will need to contact us to see if it  is possible for your particular model of phone.  On Android phones the model number is either on the back of the phone or under the battery.

Supported Vendors

We can extact data from all of the major manufacturers of cell phones.  We support over 10,000 different models of phones and it would be impossible to list all of them here.  This is just a small sample of the type of devices we can process:
