Direct recovery from iOS5-based phones is not possible because once you delete those files, they will be long gone. Although it is not possible to recover files, there are other ways that you can follow to recover your data. For example, if you performed a backup of your phone, you can recover files from the iTunes backup using Wondershare iPhone Backup Extractor. There is no other way, other than the one mentioned.

You can connect your iOS5 device to a PC, and then use this kvisoft data recovery tool to help you recover lost files from iTunes backup files. I've currently recovered several important files with it.

If you sync your iPhone with iTunes every once in a while, there’s a strong chance that the last backup that iTunes took of your iPhone has those special messages that you want back. In case you regularly backup your iPhone with iTunes, you probably recover the deleted iPhone files. However, if you have no backup of the data, you can also recover them with the help of iPhone data recovery. You can have a try!
