    I got the update yesterday afternoon and then about around 11pm last night all my text messages were deleted!

    Did anyone else have this problem?

    nope, i use Handcent, a third-party software that deals with texts. I manually updated too and it still didn't erase. Wonder why some Droids are having problems...

    I recieved the update a while back, I use handcent, I have all my messages, including a 200+ thread I have going on with my girlfriend and another couple 150+ threads with friends.

    Maybe some folks got "lucky" ?

    You do know you can save sms's / attachments and otherwise? Espically if the files are important.

    Yeah, i received a text message late last night and I just said "ill read it in the morning". Then I woke up to find all my text messages gone. Anyone figure out the root of this problem yet? If this is going to be an on-going thing, I want to know so I can consider changing phones...

    How did you learn of this? Just want to know how I know when other applications I have, have released an update. They should have some kind of option to "search for updates" or something.

    And this update ur speaking of came out on 12/29? I believe I already have this one...

    Spoiler: TXTS STILL GET RANDOMLY DELETED :(

    i dont have handcent, just use the stock messaging app, and i sent a text, put the phone to sleep, then when i went to check it there were two force close messages saying that messaging app had FCed. when i opened it up all of my texts were gone. really frustrating. i had some large threads, 400+, and some video/pics in a couple...maybe the program has a threshold? does anyone who has auto-delete on after say 200 messages have this problem? it would be nice to know that this is being addressed (2.1?) or how to avoid it because this is very frustrating

    Seems like a silly thig to complain about.

    if anything is imprtant it should be saved immedietaly.

    I usually clear out text messages almost daily, no point in having that junk on your phone./
