last thread 404d.
Found very strange texts in deleted folder on my iPhone 6. Alphanumeric strings with messages that i never sent or received. some are from numbers I've never communicated with (china and india cell phone numbers) and others are shown as coming from contacts in my address book but they are definitely not from the person it says. there are a lot of them and some messages from the same numbers in different instances.
i went to the apple store and the employee refused to let me schedule an appointment with the genius bar. I'm hoping i can find a computer programmer or someone who can identify the alphanumeric strings and tell me what they are.
yeah because this is technology that the gov is using. they can send messages from your phone. imagine if ordinary citizens could do this the trolling would be off the charts, swatting anyone you want etc.
one of the messages i found in my deleted folder that i do remember sending was to the girl i was seeing a few months ago. i specifically remember sending it but never deleting it. i was asking her for help because i felt this really strong sense that someone or something was putting me in danger. its really hard to explain but i felt this overwhelming inexplicable feeling. when i found that message the time stamp said it was sent in 2040 or something like that.
NIGGER! How did you get into your deleted folder?
if they are just corrupted...that still doesn't explain the incoming messages from numbers i don't communicate with. plenty of these are messages i know i never typed or sent. the ones that are incoming are messages id never seen before looking at the deleted messages
why the fuck are you using an iphone ?
how can you people be so goddam stupid.
Its a fucking spying/tracking device that you've been sucked into buying.
You fucking idiots are paying for the device and the service for the govt to spy on you.
Now you are fucking surprised to find unknown shit on that device.
You are a fucking zombie.
ffs OP you are really dumb, those are left overs of the deleted SMS/TEXT you are the one that sent them, those "codes" are nothing but leftovers of the deletion, when you delete something from any virtual or physical memory, there are always leftovers until you rewrite that piece of memory or substitute it for 1's or 0's.
This means that you message saying to girls "hi wanna fuck?" probably changed to what you saw when the deletion happened probably the deletion "deleted" only like half of the bits of each letter and it turned into that when the extraction program tried to read those.
There Problem solved
Yeah sure, because using an Android or a Google Phone is so safe, right?
Please shut the fuck up you fedora core inbred.
If you don't want to be spied on, just don't use your computer or your phone at all.
The numbers are cell references assigned for the items which are deleted. They just got fucked up a lil Beacuse ios is wak and ur using 3rd party software to see them... Which is strange in it self.
Other than that looks like ur gonna be raped by chinese secret forces.
it does, when accessing a portion of memory that has been deleted memory that is waiting to be replaced you can find the weirdest shit because the bits are all fucked up, you might even be looking at a mix of deleted photo bits+text message bits, Google how memory deletion works. when you "delete" stuff from the computer or any other OS the information will still be there, at least a portion of it and it will remain there until you wipe that portion of memory or replaced it with new information ex. photos or new text messages in this case in particular
After all this time I believe that sms messages have become sentient and are all around us, breeding, in the air just waiting to become strong enough to start Skynetting our asses. This is a message from the future telling you to kill yourself for the good of humanity. Do eet Faggot...and out.
OP here, started a new thread before realizing this one is still live. In response to everyone saying "you're an idiot these are just deleted messages" etc - OK, i considered this as a possibility but it still doesn't explain
1) the messages to and from numbers I've never communicated with (india china north carolina maryland etc)
2) the messages that i know for a fact i never sent
3) the messages that i know for a fact i never received (both from numbers that i have in my phone and ones that i don't)
still don't see how that explains incoming messages from numbers i don't communicate with. i don't believe the phone would repeatedly accidentally generate the same real numbers with clear english sentences.

There was someone on here last night who said they were an iOS dev. that last image i posted clearly has some type of computer programming code in it. i know very little about the subject but both NSMutabl and streamtyped brought back results on c+ and other programming language
Ive only had this phone for a few months. This is one of the longer group chats that i found amongst the deleted messages. One of the senders mentions the name of another person in the group chat (someone I know). i never use group chat and definitely never with this person
yes i tried googling a few of them. couldn't find anything definitive or worth mentioning that seemed related. someone last night suggested putting them into x code or some other program. if anyone would be willing to try to put the strings into a program and see if they bring anything back let me know. i can type them out to save you time.
OP. you're retarded. They are corrupted text messages. I'm sure you bought this phone from some one else.
Maybe your phone is being used as a node to send and receive messages around the world. Maybe the messages just contain information that is used in encoding sending and decoding the information. Maybe every phone is used as a relay point for SMS messages.
This makes sense.
We got a genius people.
Private investigator here.
Look for patterns: Persons involved, is it a SMS/MMS or a iMessage, time, date, location..etc.
Note down numbers. A country code is great, a district code works better.
There are a lot of people who come into this thread, post once, claim they solved everything, and then never respond to any questions. If you have a theory that you are actually willing to defend and explain in any amount of detail please step forward.
What has mostly happened here is that from the last place it was bought from, everything got deleted but:
How does deleting files actually work?
It doesn't really delete anything, it just tells the operative system to "stop pointing to that part in memory".
So, what that has to do with these images?
The conversations are just interpreted text by the OS which mainly are garbage and in some points there is text.
Can that text dissapear?
Yes, by installing new apps and such, it will be overwritten.
Can I retrieve all the text in it?:
Yes, get any forensics tool out there.
Create an image of the folders/files and search for a program to recover it, don't be a lazy ass.
What are they.
Also, call me old fashioned (I'm well into my late 50s) but writing the sequences down on pen and paper helps me see patterns that don't pop or jump out at when they're in an electronic format. Might be helpful for you.
I'd love to help but I'm going to need to know what those patterns and numbers are.
Sometimes, during tracking of a phone, random strings of alphanumeric characters are sent to the phone, responded to by the tracking software in your phone, and instantly deleted. Other signs to show you are being tracked is a low level of noise coming from the earpiece and/or loudspeaker, even when audio isn't being output. Check for these signs too, OP
why are you sure that these are "phone numbers" and not just random numbers along with that random letters stuff there.
also stop using "hack tools" to access your deleted folder. they suck obviously.
i know they are actual phone numbers because they have ten digits arranged in the format (xxx)-xxx-xxxx. when I google them it brings back records of actual numbers with city and state.
In 1998 or 1999, I was at high school, browsing, downloaded stuff from NSA or UN website into new floppy disc.
The files were dated 1979, 2025, they were .fat files and their total size was almost 4 gigabytes.
I am curious, OP because you know have free and available software and the help of the b/ros.
You gotta crack this
this seems related, trying to figure out how to test using x code. any help would be greatly appreciated.
The interpretation of the contents of any file is at the discretion of the software that reads it - file types/extensions clue your OS as to which software to open the file with.
On your phone, your cached emails carry a lot of extra data in their files beyond the text, such as B64 encoded timestamps (which is probably what you see). Messy data that is not shown when your files are opened with the correct program (obviously).
For example, you can open this image (and scroll to the bottom if you wish) with notepad, which will display a lot of invalid characters (notepad incorrectly interprets the character encoding) but also some plain text.
The extension / associated software of your cached emails was lost in your deleted folder (pretty understandable; they were deleted) and now your message program is incorrectly interpreting them as plain text message files; but obviously we know better.
you're not reading text messages; your message program is incorrectly opening non-message files.
I'd also point out that it's often incredibly hard to recall digital conversations we have with people. Open your phone now and view an old text message with a friend. I personally have no idea what shit I was smoking when I send some of these texts.
I will paypal gift $10 to anyone who can figure out what is actually going on with my phone. When i went to the apple store the employee basically refused to let me schedule an appointment. I want answers.
Probably just data converted into hex. Just looks weird. Hex is a shorthand way to hide binary. So, change hex to binary with hex to binary translator, then binary to english translator to see if win or not
Your phone is garbage OP. You are probably lying and bought a cracked beat up used phone from a thieving vagabond. You're no better than a nigger. Not to mention the guy you got it from probably overdosed from the $40 worth of cut up heroine that he bought with your money. How's it feel to be so poor that you have to go so low as to acquire nice things? You make me sick.
Apple genius bar employee here. There is no other explanation.
