Download and use file manager from http://www.gosymbian.com/FE_download.html

Launch FExplorer and navigate to C: if you use the phone's memory to store your messages (which is the case by default) Or navigate to D: if you use the storage card
Then navigate to and open “system” folder.
Now open the “mail” folder.
This folder should contain many folders named similar to 0010001_s etc. with files named similar to 00100000 etc.
These files are the actual deleted messages, Simply, use the FExplorer inbuild text viewer to view these files, You will need to browse through every folder and open all files inside them until you get the required SMS.
Found, however,  that this trick does not work on Symbian 3rd Edition cellphones
