    My Text Messages Gone

    I had a bunch of text messages from various people on my droid and cleared them out as needed. Option to delete is turned off. I have had no problems with messenging at all since I got this phone the day it was available. Today I'm texting someone and I go to look for the messages and they are all gone, for everyone. What the heck happened? Anyone have any idea?

    thank you

    I had the same thing happen this a.m. Spent Idk how much time with customer support only to be told if it happens again call them. They are aware of it, but he said there is no way to get the messages back. I am NOT happy! Anyone that knows how to retrieve them, please help.

    I have suffered from this issue several times in the past. What i've found to be most helpful is keeping a backup of my messages.

    SMS Backup & Restore v3.2 Application for Android | Tools (available on the android market)

    This program can be set to save your text messages daily or on demand. From there you can choose to restore from SD card if you lose your messages again.

    Note: I have not had this problem occur in a long time. I had a theory it was due to having too many picture messages. So now whenever i get a picture message, i save it to SD then erase that message from the thread. I haven't had it happen in several months now, so maybe it's worth a shot.

    If I'm not mistaken this app won't backup pictures received in texts so save them to SD.

    Yeah i'm fairly certain you are right. But having the rest of your messages backed up is always a good thing.

    I disagree with the picture message theory. I was brand new to the DROID when a quirk like that happened to me and stripped out various things. An explanation for something like that will compare to catching a flying monkey.....I'd rather have the truth to the problem told. I think it is more carrier related---Backing up is your friend.

    There have been many threads and many theories about this, no one really knows the reason behind it, I dont think. Ultimately it comes down to making your own backups and just restoring them when/if it happens again.

    Well let me just say what I am thinking and that way I do not have to beat around the bush. I worked with all the carriers, sales, techs, billing departments that there is in the market on user, bill payer, support provider, and heavy ties affiliated with each company before it was over. I know when I supported blackberrys at my firm that Alltel did not like ATT (at that time) getting into the markets action and suddenly a new tower conveniently went into a hotel near us and there was a lot of outages affecting our ATT blackberrys-- suddenly---until roughly the 7290's and thereafters came out.. the 3G happened. And I know that when I would go to my family roots and visit that when Alltel partnered with Verizon I had the best service. WOW! And that merger and service went sour when Verizon moved into our Alltel market both carriers did not play nice with one another in that area until Verizon took over Alltel. And somewhere in the big net there is a post on me about that subject under an alias name "Prefer the book" that can back another telecommunications comment up when someone posted an annonymous response of "No comment"....because they know it happens...cat fights amongst carriers happen. What I am saying is that usually in the world of telecommunication that things happen to users to sway them. When Alltel users didn't sway to the Verizon market, Verizon made a move for Alltel. ATT bought Cingular. And where calls dropped ridiculously once upon a time [and some days I wish it still happened] there is a brand new tower........that's ugly....but calls do not drop. And last not least, since I work around tech's all day long.....I've never seen many a tech tell the truth on hitting a button or dropping a code on an install, but miraculously things are fixed upon "are you sure? conversations." From Onstar issues, to blackberrys, to webpage fixes and breaks, circuit territory fights, mergers, and getting ugly "No, we've moved to another vendor meetings" I know 90% of the time someone knows who hit the button they just won't admit it because they do not have to. "Call the next time it happens" means we have a monitor on it, enjoy the 20 minute hold, for us to tell you I do not know." THAT is my flying monkeys comment explanation.....I have to go pack now and remember-- back your stuff up.
    Some days...you cannot run the show...just go with it. Why? The word mutiny. Because? My mutiny wins when I have had my fill. Today I am likely just going with it....

    Today...not 20 minutes ago, serving me right, my text messages disappeared, after a force close. Now crazy things have been going on w my phone, call drops, applications opening on their own, like shazam, docs to go. I have been using task killer on what I thought was the causes. Easy teethering pro was turned back on, docs to go was, bluetooth share was back on, MP3 store was turned on again. Things I do not use but have because I thought I would need or use/added. I turned off google location too, and things calmed down......but admittedly....I am starting to get chaffed. I have also shut down voice search, calendar, corp. calendar, google partner setup, com.google.android.feedback, browser, my uploads, com.motorola.hiddenmenu, voice dialer, open home [not in use but change is good some days] and something I never use and that is facebook...off as of day one. I noticed com.motorola.hiddenmenu in task killer when I travelled recently and researched it and now not being new to the droid unexplaineds becomes more personal..........I was in Nebraska, I was next to an important airbase--I figured it was something to do with that, but I live near a different airbase and never experienced that issue.

    Its a (droid) phone first , an open communication to be found fast when someone needs to find me fast for my kids.......then texting is a second source for that I cannot even hammer this message out on the droid without having the cursor auto scroll and move across the page-- losing my location in a sentence and scroll around .......help? Demons be gone.
