    I had this happen when using Handcent. Are you using the stock sms app?

    Yes, that only happened to me when using handcent. I guess this wasn't the apps fault since you are having the same issue.

    It happen to me as well while using Handcent. A Verizon tech fed me some bull about opening the message in the drop down tray deletes the message in the tread. BS

    I un installed Handcent and every thing works now.

    I use stock SMS and this happens ... I used to use smsunread and they said it was that apps fault ... clearly "DROID does" delete messages ... :)

    I was having the same problem. Turns out that the antivirus app I had installed was causing it to delete them and force close the messaging. Stock sms.

    If you guys are running any Task Killer type applications, make sure you tell it to leave the messaging app alone when you kill all open tasks.

    I have a feeling killing the messenger app when it may have a file still *open might be doing some funky stuff. Just a guess.

    I use Handcent exclusively and my teenage son uses the stock app exclusively. Neither one of us have had the DROID delete our messages. I only do a couple hundred texts per month but my son does several thousand and we have never had that issue on either of our DROIDs. Wonder what's causing it for you guys so we can be sure to avoid it!

    well with handcent im guessing its just a random bug that happens. not sure what causes it at all, but if i get any ideas ill be sure to post them :)

    on the brightside its not so bad to have all my messages deleted, sometimes its nice to start fresh lol

    I found two ways around the problem. I was originally using Handcent and thought that was the problem so I deleted Handcent and switched to the stock app. I still had the problem. After doing some reading I reinstalled Handcent and disabled the on screen notification window. After I disabled the popup my messages started treading again. I then went into Startup auditor and re enabled the stock messaging app. This made it where I can use the Handcent popups and still see message treads.

    In short when I disabled the stock messaging app in Startup Editor it caused the issue. Handcent must use a process or file in the stock messaging app that Startup Editor was killing.

    I got the almost opposite effect. My phone doesn't delete threads at all, i have to delete entire message. Not a big deal but i have to look up the people i text all time insted of deleting just the threads :)

    I have a similar issue that's happened a dozen or so times over the past month.

    I use Handcent. I get an Notification of a new txt in my Notification tray (I don't use the popup) but I have noticed the icon widget doesn't update with a 1. When I open Handcent the txt is gone....

    Fortunately I'm using Google Voice so I open up the Google Voice app and I can see the missing txt.

    Guys this has nothing to do with ChompSMS or Handscent or any other application. It is a HUGE bug in the Android OS.

    Issue 5669 - android - Droid deleting all Messaging/SMS conversation threads at random or triple sending - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Please star it and voice your opinion until it is fixed, because this is not acceptable I have lost all texts over 5 times now and I want to keep them just like the iPhone kept my messages for 2 years!

    Mine were deleted:

    Battery pull with a message open in Handcent did it. Can't say that I mind. Handcent runs much quicker without all those messages stuffed in there.
