    After a period of time when I uncheck the box so I can keep my messages for as long as I want, the box always resets itself.

    Does anyone have any way to counter this?

    I appreciate any help

    We've seen reports of those types of behavior when the device is being used while charging.

    If that is not the case with you, have you seen this in more than one session? That is, are you seeing it just now but not before your latest boot up?

    If it's the first time, I'd suggest rebooting.

    I have noticed that if I shutdown the task that is when it gets rechecked. If you are using a task manager just add the messaging app to your ignore list and you should be all good!.

    Unfortunately it happens every day whether I'm charging or not and the messaging app is off my kill list...

    i have this same problem. i made a post about it as well but got no response
     
  6. I had the same problem, but I seem to have fixed it after some trial, error, and hair loss. Here's what I did:

    1) Backed up all my data (SMS, MMS, Contacts) in various ways.

    1a)Backed up my contacts using the Import/Export feature in the Contacts app.
    1b)Backed up my SMS and MMS using 'MyBackup' on the Market. There is a free version for 30 days, which works. In the app, just select Backup -> Data -> Local (SD Card) -> Then select all the data you want to back up.

    2) Factory reset

    3) Set all my settings in the messaging app, and made sure they stuck (Closed the app, reset the phone, etc.)

    4) Reinstalled 'MyBackup' from the Market, and restored my data for it's backup, and imported all my contacts again.

    This may not be the quickest or most continent way to fix it, but it seems to work!
