    I'm using the regular messaging app, and for the second time in 2 weeks, ALL my text messages have been deleted. Is this a verizon thing? If so, I seriously might go back to AT&T because this is just becoming extremely irritating.

    I've actually had to go in and delete old text messages because it was getting too cluttered. Had my Droid for over a month and havent noticed any messages getting "automatically" deleted.

    No its not a "Verizon" thing. Are you using Handcent SMS?

    As said in my OP, I'm using the stock messaging app.


    I just did a search and a lot of poeple are having this issue. So it's a droid problem?

    Possibly. Its never happened to me though, and I am a regular texter.

    Are you using a task killer? Ever wonder if ending that messaging app is corrupting the messages, causing them to be deleted?

    Its not too far a stretch by any means.

    I don't end my messaging app, ever.

    Hit your menu button and go to settings.

    Then under Text Message Limit, set it to what you like. Mine is set for 1000.

    I have had the same problem I had auto delete turned off and it did it to me twice. One time it even deleted a message that I had locked and wanted to save :/ I turned my auto delete back on to see if that would help

    What "adrynalyne" but I doubt you do because you are saying all of them right?? Still could be that...if not its just the firmware because Ive had that happen to me too :(

    Sure sounds like text message limit settings. Do you have the auto delete checked and if so, what is your limit set to?

    Just checked, and it's not checked, so that's not the problem.

    Yeah...I just read this after I posted. This is true...it should only delete the earlier ones in this case.

    Then its the software/firmware...it's happened to me too...I would just wait until 2.1 (Couple more days) until i would switch/get a different phone if it pisses you off.

    Yup

    This just happened to me for the first time today. Very bizarre. I thought that the messeages were just not loading or something, but they're definitely all gone.

    I would suggest that everyone get SMS backup, which backups all of your texts to your google account.

    MyBackup is great too. This is my second droid and reinstalling all of the apps can be a hassle, but with MyBackup you just restore everything from your SD card.

    This has happened to me twice now and it's happened to my friend twice also. We've both unchecked the delete button under the settings and have set our limit to 2000 messages per thread but it still deleted our entire inboxes even though be hadn't reached our limit. This is so incredibly irritating! Called Verizon and they had no answer for me, other than to do a phone restart! Ugh! Any advice would be helpful! Thanks!

    Mine did that for the 2nd time last night! So annoying! Most annoying part is when it happens, all my texts get messed up too... Like if someone messages me It says it is from a different person. Every fricken time! Once I restarted the phone it fixed the names, but all my texts were still gone! Im def getting SMS backup! I had a TON of texts!

    i noticed this was happening to me when my handcent force closed. so i fc it, then i don't open it bakc up (which is when they usually all deleted) i just restart the phone instead, and it hasn't happened again.

    it was getting to the point where this would happen to me daily. it was SUPER frustrating.
