i’m attempting to retrieve text msgs off of an Android phone that was dropped in water. When i plug it into my computer, the device registers, but it says all files are empty. There are extremely important msgs on there that i need as evidence in a civil court case. i’m wondering where exactly on the phone the texts would be stored ( if at all ), so that i can possibly pay to have someone retrieve them.

It sounds like maybe the device memory may have been damaged, I would recommend taking it to a place that normally repairs phones, and see if they have a way to save any data on the device. Good luck !
