Texting IssueSupport

    I'm having two issues with my Elite that I'm hoping someone can help me out with.
    First Issue: I received a text this weekend. When I opened it all of my previous texts were gone. Not just the ones from that particular person, but every text I have ever sent and received from anyone. They just disappeared. Has this happened to anyone else?

    2nd Issue: When someone sends me a long text, it will usually get broken up into a few separate texts. When this happens the texts do not come in the correct order. So I end up having to scroll up and down to try to figure out the order of the texts. Here's an example of how it might come through. If I receive a text of what I have just written, it will come through like this:

    1st text will read: "When someone sends me a long text, It will usually get broken up into a few separate texts.
    2nd Text: "When this happens the texts do not come in the correct order. So I end up having to scroll up and down to try to figure
    3rd Text: If I receive a text of what I have just written, it will come through like this:
    4th Text: out the order of the texts. Here's an example of how it might come through.
    I hope this make sense.
    Everything about my phone is stock and I'm using the stock messaging app.
    Any ideas what's going on and how to fix it?

    I have not had issue one. Issue 2 - On occasion I have received a text out of order like you have described (from my wife who also has an Optimus Elite). She has said she has had issues sending texts sometimes, lag on getting them to send I believe. I have always just presumed it was the way her phone sent them. It hasn't happened very often.

    In the Message app there is a setting "Message reassembly". You might try checking or unchecking it and see what effect that may have.

    Thanks for the response. My messages send and receive pretty quickly, it's just this out of order thing that's bugging me. I have tried checking and unchecking the "Message Reassembly" and it does the same thing thing whether it's checked or not.

    Try downloading another messaging app, a lot of the play store apps have more options than the stock app, and they often work better as well.

    Any suggestions on another app? If I do download another app, will it transfer all of my existing text messages into that app?

    I use GO SMS personally, but I would also recommend Handcent and Chomp, and yes your text messages get imported. Rather, both the stock messaging app (which is also extremely out of date and hasn't been updated, but I would leave Message Reassembly checked, as it seems to work just fine for me on GO SMS [but needs that setting set, I believe, in the stock messaging app - I don't know why]), and any other messaging app, reads your text messages from the mmssms.db file located in /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases.

    I will check out those other apps and see if one of them solves my problem. Thanks to all of you for the advice.

    I'm using stock msg app. Thinking of trying Chomp. In Chomp, if I send a msg to a phone that is not using Chomp (wife's OE), will I still be able to send "smileys"? (Or just the standard ones?) Will I be able to send pictures?
    Thanks

    With respect to losing your messages, make sure you have your phone set to not delete your text messages. When in the messaging app, press your phones menu button and go to settings. the first setting at the top is "Delete old messages". If that is turned on that is probably what happened to your old messages.
