    For no reason. I received a text, read it and pressed the home button. Went back to respond and EVERY one of my texts is gone. That's f'n BS. Any way to recover them?

    A feature to me is when something works right. Not when it nukes text messages which I needed. lol.

    This has happened to me about four times since I got my phone in early April. The past two times, I think, happened when it wanted to force close the entire messaging app. I habitually press force close. XD I'm going to avoid doing that from now on and see if that helps anything.

    SMS Backup helps, because if I lose all my messages, I just go to my gmail and read the most recent message. That way I don't have to bother people to resend their messages. :)

    Really wish this problem would be fixed, though. I like to lock messages and read them again later.... They aren't separated and special with SMS Backup. They're just there. So if I want to reread them, I have to sort through and find them. Bleh.

    I just installed SMS backup. It will help going forward, but it sucks because I had some important ones I can't get back. F'n technology. lol.

    I think I was smart enough to install it before my texts starting erasing because I had already read about the problem on the forum. XD Learning from other people's mistakes. It's awesome.

    Happened to me even while I was using Handcent. So I don't think using another messaging App really helps.

    Happened to me on BB 2.2 v.3 for sure. I didn't run .4 long enough to notice.
