    Is Handcent the cause of the random All message deleting?

    I have yet to download Handcent, and I have also yet to have all of my messages deleted unlike many other Droid users out there. I really want to download handcent and use it, but I am afraid that this might cause all of my messages to delete.

    Has everyone who has had this problem also used Handcent?

    I have not had this problem and I am a constant user of Handcent. If it is a real concern you can download apks that will back up your SMS.

    No the problem is not with Handcent. People who have had messages wiped include people that are using the default app as well (and other SMS apps). The problem seems to be with the underlying database that stores the messages, which is a common database (which is why you have to turn off notifications for the stock app when you install an app like Handcent).

    ...then why does the handcent update mention they're fixing a problem that causes messages to be deleted?

    I believe that's happening because of their storage settings. SMS's will be deleted when they reach the text and MMS limits which are user defined.

    If there is a check mark in the box to delete old messages it wipes out everything that's been read.

    cereal killer mentioned one case. I did also see on their forums problems with lost messages in 2 specific scenarios... One, when a Force Close occured, and the second, if I remember correctly had to do with a message popup (I don't use the pop up, so, can't say for sure).

    These are about lost and or deletion of certain messages, and a bit different than the losing all messages problem.

    Using the pop-up here, no deleted messages for me. Haven't run in to this issue at all actually. But then again I clear threads when I'm done with the conversation. I don't store much.

    I had all my sms's get deleted randomly for no apparent reason... I was shocked and horrified. Wasn't using any 3rd party messaging apps.

    I do not want to have to back up my SMSs every day, I really hope it doesn't happen again.
