    Weird issue yesterday...I noticed my Handcent widget wasnt displaying any text messages and I checked it out to find all of my text messages deleted. I looked through handcent app and the native SMS app and didnt notice any options that if enabled- would delete all messages after xyz is met.

    anyone else experienced random data loss like this?

    Yea dude, that happens. It's new, happened on my ROM'd Droid, and on my wife's stock droid. My interim solution is automatic daily backups w/ ROM manager. I'd love to find the root cause. Cheers.

    My twitter widget periodically asks for me to sign in again.

    Wow, can't believe you guys didn't know about this.

    Android's system is set up (unless you change the default setting) to automatically delete text/SMS after you receive more than a certain number.

    Go to messaging > settings > text message limit. Uncheck "delete old messages"

    WRONG. Not this issue. That setting is (AND WAS) off on both phones where I encountered this issue. I've had this issue happen MULTIPLE TIMES. This setting is not enabled.

    Sorry friend, i too have encountered this, before rooting, on 2.1 I was aware of that setting and it was appropriate. :-/ idk what causes/caused it. (morel of the story: its a ghost-bug in the system, it just happens)

    That's how it happened to me. It happened once, then the next week I lost it again. Thanks to ROM Manger daily backups I don't have to worry about that. Please let me know if you guys find a real fix, not a band-aid.
