ProofPront has released the US$197.95 iPhone Recovery Stick (, a new product that allows access to deleted text messages, call logs, contacts, appointments, internet history and other data from the iPhone.

It combines hardware and software, purportedly enabling the same forensic technology used by law enforcement agencies around the world to be employed by parents, spouses and business owners with little to no data recovery expertise. To recover data from an iPhone, unfortunately, you’ll unfortunately have to connect the phone to a USB port on a Windows computer, then plug the iPhone Recovery Stick into a second USB port.

Once the program is started, the recovery process can take from 15 minutes up to several hours, depending on the amount of data on the phone. The user can then view, save or print the deleted and undeleted data.
